It wasn’t a pretty, blue-sky day. No, the skies were cloudy and hazy. It didn’t matter, though, because I had come for the wind.
As I entered Empire Beach and looked north towards Sleeping Bear, I could see Lake Michigan was churned up. Waves and whitecaps. Just what I was hoping for.
A kite bobbing in the distant sky gave even more credence to the blustery conditions.
It was only 11 a.m. and Lake Michigan water temperatures hovered in the low sixties, yet people were already in the water enjoying the big waves.
Farther out, the square pyramidal North Breakwater Lighthouse tower was getting slammed with waves too. Another beautiful scene added to the many I'd experienced that day. Such gratitude I felt for living so close to the natural world!
I was out shooting in farm country when I spotted my two non-breeding Sandhill Cranes in a cornfield.
