I got up early and zipped to Algoma in hopes of catching a nice sunrise. The beautiful sunrise landscape image I was hoping for never materialized. However, it was a windy morning with waves crashing over the pier, so I focused on capturing some of the morning wave action.
In the low light conditions, it was difficult to capture the action of the crashing waves in focus. This is one of those shoots where I wish I could spend more time experimenting on the technical aspects.

Like sentinels with bayonets drawn, two fishermen are on high alert, ready for the bite. These stalwart anglers are fishing for salmon in the early morning fog. Their lures are plying the waters of Lake Michigan, off the pier at Algoma, Wisconsin.

I was on the beach at Kewaunee, Wisconsin, taking photos of the lighthouse at sunrise. (Watch for that photo to be posted soon.)
I noticed the sun beginning to rise over the pier and started to take photos of it. Then I noticed two people walking along the pier, toward the sun, one from each direction. The two met and began talking. I moved my camera to frame the two in the orb of light from the rising sun behind them.
The two were fisherman – you can see one with a landing net and rod in his hands. I imagine they were discussing the recent fishing activity on the pier, like if any had been caught this morning, what they were biting on, how big they were…etc.

This is the lighthouse at the end of the pier in Kewaunee, WI. The sun rising over Lake Michigan created some unusual tones on this morning – due, I believe, to the low, thicker clouds that muted the light on the horizon.

The clouds and the early morning light created a magical panoramic view. I snapped this yesterday morning from the beach in Kewaunee, WI.
I’m sorry the format of this blog is not conducive to getting a good view of panorama images. You can get a better view by clicking on the image.
I really wanted a huge sailboat to glide into this photo. How cool would that look. I also managed to snagged a few black-and-white images from this morning that I’ll post in the future.
These anglers were at it early on a Saturday morning – fishing from the end of the Kewaunee, WI pier.
