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.

Morning Dance On the Beach

Wave, Sunrise, Lighthouse, Kewaunee, WI, Lake Michigan

The waves seemed to be dancing with delight on the western shore of Lake Michigan as the Kewaunee, WI lighthouse and pier greet the new day.

As you can see, I had excellent conditions to try this type of image.  Normally, at sunrise, the overwhelming brightness of the sun has a tendency to turn everything in the foreground into a silhouette. On this morning, there was some serious haze in the sky and clouds that blocked the harsh light and gave me enough to work with. The lake was a little rougher than it usually is at sunrise giving me the challenge of capturing a wave splashing on the shore.

There is plenty to like in this scene.  The calming color of the sky, the landmark lighthouse with some fishermen on the pier, the texture of choppy water, the refreshing wave splash and reflection of light on the beach. This will be one of my favorites for the year.

Splash of Light

Splash, Waves, Lake Michigan, Lighthouse, Sunrise

The waves seemed to dance on Lake Michigan’s western shore as the sun emerged from behind the lighthouse at Kewaunee, WI.

I snapped this yesterday.  It was the kind of morning perfect for an early stroll along the beach.  The temperatures were comfortable with a slight breeze, the sun provided comforting color and the fishermen – on the pier and in boats further out – provided points of interest in the distance.

Photographing waves, and capturing the light in them, is a challenge that I still want to improve on.  Of course, as you can tell by the relatively calm lake, these were very small waves and tiny splashes.  Some good rolling waves might provide a bit more action and, consequently, opportunity.

Be Still My Soul

Lighthouse, Lake Michigan, Kewaunee, Sunrise, Waves, SkyI find this to be a very therapeutic scene. It is the Kewaunee, Wisconsin lighthouse with the waves of Lake Michigan rolling and reflecting the sunrise in the foreground. To add and extra measure of calming grace, six Canada geese fly past the lighthouse.  (If you look close, you’ll even see a sea gull above the geese, on the right side.)

This is one of my favorite images.  I captured this at the end of last February – the same morning I captured, Morning Rolls In, posted March 1st. Look back and compare the two.  This one was after the sun was up and into the clouds.  Morning Rolls In was shot earlier, before the sun breached the horizon.

I like both, but I like this one more.  The sun’s reflection among the waves and the near perfect timing of the geese flying by make this an easy favorite.

Morning Rolls In

Lighthouse, Sunrise, Lake Michigan, Waves, Morning, Kewaunee
The waves were rolling in, just before the sun was to rise over Lake Michigan.  I captured this view of the lighthouse and pier from the beach at Kewaunee, Wisconsin.

Most mornings the lake is calm, but recent windy conditions kicked up a bit of surf. This was taken last Sunday morning.

Subtle Awakening

Sunrise, Seascape, Lake Michigan, Kewaunee, WI, Lighthouse, BeachThe Kewaunee, Wisconsin lighthouse and pier stand ready to greet the sun as it rises above the Lake Michigan horizon.

I love the way the light dances on the beach with the gentle rhythm of the calm, early morning waves.  The clouds above add another layer of flavorful light.

The Churning

Algoma, WI, Rough Seas, Lake Michigan, Algoma, Winter, Snow, Ice
This is not my typical lighthouse photo from Algoma, WI. A spell of very cold temperatures created considerable ice along the shore and  powerful Lake Michigan winds churned up a torrent of wave action with spectacular splashes.
