Serious Sunrise


Sunrise, Algoma, WI, Lake MichiganThere was a very serious mood to this morning’s sky as the sun breached the horizon behind the lighthouse and pier at Algoma, Wisconsin.  It was a good morning to be on Lake Michigan’s western shore.

I was up early to make my way to Algoma, hoping for a worthwhile sunrise. I was not disappointed. The temperatures were cool but the sky had a warming effect…at least on the psyche.  This shot was taken from the harbor embankment at the marina.

I’ve got a few other good shots from this vantage point that I’ll be working on when time allows.  Watch for a wide, panorama shot of this morning’s sunrise in the future.

October Surprise

Sunrise, Lighthouse, Lake Michigan, Kewaunee, WI
I encountered a number of surprises on this early morning visit to the lake shore at Kewaunee, Wisconsin.

The morning light was a very pleasant surprise.  The variations of color in the sky, from yellow to blue with a hint of purple on the fringes, was another welcome surprise. The rough water was an exciting surprise – normally the lake is pretty calm in the early morning hours.

The overall result of this image was a very nice surprise.  I didn’t think I’d be able to capture as much of the dynamic range as I did.  As bright as the sky looked and as dark as the water looked, I thought it would be difficult to see much of the detail in this image.

Pure Algoma

Lighthouse, Harbor, Algoma, WI, Wisconsin, Lake Michigan, Blue
The Algoma lighthouse and pier present a welcome sight to shore-side visitors and, more important, the watercraft entering and departing the small Lake Michigan harbor.

This image doesn’t contain the dramatic sunrise elements usually seen in my photos of the Algoma lighthouse.  I was there at the break of dawn, hoping for a dramatic sunrise, but it never materialized.  Still I like this photo for the clear, clean feel of the blue water and sky…with a hint of sunrise pink on the horizon.

Beyond the Harbor

Sunrise, Algoma, WI, Lake Michigan, Clouds, Harbor
This is a panoramic view at the mouth of the harbor at Algoma, WI; on the western shore of Lake Michigan.

A couple of weeks ago I set out to capture a sunrise, but as you can see, the sun was blocked by the thick clouds on the horizon.  The best feature of the morning were the lighter clouds, highlighted by the hidden sun, that filled the sky above.

To capture this wide-angle view, I took four separate photos and combined them for the final image you see here.

I don’t often post panoramic images because of the width limitations of most websites, including my own.  To get the best view of this one, you should click on the photo.  When you do, a larger version will open in a new browser tab.

Not Ready to Wake

Sunrise, Lighthouse, Lake Michigan, Algoma, WI, Blue hour, Morning
With the sun trying to break through in the background, the Algoma lighthouse and piers seem content to sleep in a little longer. Lake Michigan seemed just as reluctant to rise and greet the day.  (Algoma, Wisconsin is located on the western shore of Lake Michigan.)

Icing On the Lake

Ice, Cold, Winter, Lighthouse, Sunrise, Kewaunee, WI, Lake Michigan
When temperatures drop on Lake Michigan, the ice begins to form and coat anything it contacts.

This is a sunrise view of the lighthouse and pier at Kewaunee, WI – on the western shore of Lake Michigan.

That rock in the foreground isn’t actually a rock. It is an ice formation created by snow/ice breaking away from the shore and being trapped in the ice a few feet from shore.

Orange Plush

Sunrise, Sunset, Lighthouse, Orange, Clouds, Lake Michigan
The sky looked more like soft, flowing fabric above the Kewaunee, Wisconsin lighthouse, on the western shore of Lake Michigan.

This image was captured in early December of last year. (2014)  I stumbled upon it while looking for another image in my archives.  I thought it was worth sharing.

This is a slightly different perspective of the Kewaunee lighthouse than you’ll normally see in my posts.  This is from the north side of the pier.  Most of the time, I’m shooting from the south side.

Sudden Outburst

Lighthouse, Algoma, WI, Sunrise, Sunburst, Lake Michigan
I had the opportunity to capture a sunrise in Algoma last Saturday. Low clouds couldn’t hold back the morning sun as it rose over Lake Michigan, beyond the lighthouse and pier.

There have been few days, recently, where the sky hasn’t been overcast and grey. There have been fewer days when I’ve had the time to get out and shoot.

This is an HDR image – where I combined five different exposures of the same shot to provide a greater dynamic range.

Preview of Coming Attractions

Lighthouse, Algoma, Sunrise, Sunset, Wisconsin, Beauty, Landscape
The true magic happens just before the sun breaks the horizon. It usually only lasts a few moments, but it’s worth the effort to catch it. This magical moment arrived behind the Algoma, Wisconsin lighthouse and pier, on the western shore of Lake Michigan.

Peace Unto You

Lighthouse, Harbor, Wisconsin, Lake Michigan, Sunrise, Clouds, Blue
A beautiful September, Lake Michigan sunrise as viewed from the Algoma, Wisconsin harbor.

This is actually three individual photos I “stitched” together to make a wider, panoramic view.

It’s been awhile since I’ve been able to catch a nice sunrise behind the Algoma lighthouse.  When I looked out the window and realized the sky might be cooperative, I packed up and headed out.  I got there just in time and get several good images.  Watch for more in the future.
