Of the seventy or so images you’ll find in my Flickr Photostream, this is the image that has been viewed and commented on the most.
This is a view of Lake Michigan at the the Algoma, WI beach on March 4, 2007. I was heading to the church early in the morning and stopped, as I often do, to snap a few pictures. It was at the tail-end of a snow storm and, though you can’t see it, snow was still blowing quite a bit. I remember it being miserable outside.
If you go to my Flickr Photostream, you can see this same image in B&W. (Click Here)
The panoramic view below – created by “stitching” several photos together – was captured the same morning.
On my way to church early this morning (March 6, 2001) I noticed the sun breaking through the clouds over Lake Michigan. I stopped at a wayside just south of Algoma, WI and took a few photos.
The wider view below was taken with a sweeping motion using the panorama setting on my camera – the Sony SLT-A55.
I have another image from this series that I’ll post soon.

Winter – as presented by Algoma, WI on the morning of Sunday, February 27, 2001. As I often do, I stopped for a moment to snap a few pictures on my way to church that morning.
Algoma sits on the western shore of Lake Michigan. Beneath the snow, next to the lamppost, is a boardwalk that runs along Algoma’s Crescent Beach. In the distance you see Algoma’s harbor and famous Pier Light.
I can’t decide if I prefer this image in color or B&W (slight sepia tone) so I offer you both. Give each your consideration and and let me know which one your prefer in the comments below.
If you click on either of the images you’ll get a larger version where you can easily flip back and forth between the two.
Went down to the lake Saturday morning and was not at all disappointed about forgetting my swim fins and water wings. This is a photo of the Algoma, WI harbor. If I would have used my zoom lens, you’d be able to see even the geese had goose bumps. This photo was taken just before 8 AM.
Last Saturday I stopped at Crescent Beach in Algoma, WI and snapped this image. Beyond the fence and out of view is the open water of Lake Michigan.
I took several shots – with the sun shining brightly and with the sun behind the clouds. I preferred the bright sun (as seen here) to emphasize the contrast of the shadows on the snow.
After downloading to my computer, I added the sepia tone in Photoshop.
This is an early morning edition of the pier light that marks the harbor entrance at Algoma, WI.
If you follow this blog, you’ll notice it’s one of my favorite subjects.
