Wispy clouds, illuminated by the rising sun, provided an interesting backdrop to the Kewaunee, Wisconsin lighthouse and pier.  Kewaunee is a small community on the western shore of Lake Michigan.

Blue Morning Whispers

Just before the sun rises over Lake Michigan and the Kewaunee, WI lighthouse, the soft clouds speak in subtle whispers to those who have ears to hear.

Fire Above

Clouds, Sunrise, Sunset, Lighthouse, Kewaunee, WI, Lake Michigan
A unique effect, created by the sun highlighting the bottom of the clouds above the Kewaunee, WI lighthouse and pier. This was just moments before the sun would breach the Lake Michigan horizon.  If you look closely, you can see fishermen on the pier, hoping for a bit of early morning angling action.

I take a lot of sunrise photos from the shore of Lake Michigan.  I live a couple of miles from shore so I’m in the habit of looking to the sky a half hour or so before sunrise.  If the sky shows any promise, and it’s a day when I don’t have to be somewhere else like work or church, I head to the beach.

You never know how it’s going to turn out.  There are days when things look promising but the sky never makes good on that promise.  But, on other days, it can be breathtaking.

I take a lot of sunrise photos because no two sunrises are the same….except those with no clouds at all. It’s the clouds that make a sunrise worth capturing.  When I look to the early morning sky, I’m looking for cloud….usually light wispy ones.  These weren’t wispy, but the effect was well worth the trip.

Sun Day

Sunrise, Lighthouse, Kewaunee, Lake Michigan, Silhouette The rising sun, behind the Kewaunee, WI lighthouse, provided a beautiful start for the early morning fishermen on the pier.

I named this one, Sun Day, because it was a Sunday morning sunrise; yesterday.

Foggy River


River, Fog, Foggy, Morning Fog, Sunrise, Kewaunee, Wisconsin, WI
On my way to the Lake Michigan shore…just around the bend from my house…I cross the Kewaunee river. As I was returning home after shooting a sunrise over the lake, I stopped to snap a few of the river.

There is often a hint of fog in the cool, low lying areas of the river, but this morning there was more than usual and the warmth of the still rising sun (just out of the frame on the right) added a great quality to the scene.

Fog is always cool but, I think, one of the more challenging situations to photograph.  I find it very difficult to capture in the camera what the eye can see.  Even when you can snag a cool scene like this, it still lacks the actual experience.

Behold the Dawn

Sunrise, Dawn, Lighthouse, Lake Michigan
The sun is about to emerge from behind the Kewaunee, WI lighthouse and pier. Another beautiful start to a Lake Michigan morning.  The expanse of sky and water makes the lighthouse seem tiny.  Even smaller, is the fishing boat to the right of the lighthouse – seen as just a dot on the horizon.
