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.

Winter Convention

Canada Goose, Canada Geese, Winter, Cold, Ice, Blue, Flock
The geese were thick as thieves as they congregated on the December ice covering the harbor at Kewaunee, WI. These are wild, Canada geese.

The early morning light provided an interesting quality to this scene…which I enhanced further, taking a little artistic licence.

Alternate Reality

Lighthouse, Colorful, Sunrise, Lake Michigan, Kewaunee, WI, Wisconsin, Rocks
The over saturated effect in this image of the Kewaunee, WI lighthouse gives it an other-worldly feel. Kewaunee is located on the western shore of Lake Michigan.

This is a stylistic experiment for me. Every now and then, I try something totally out of my normal box. I like this image…but I’m not sure I’d like a lot of it.

Break of Dawn (vintage)


This is an image that dates back a few years.  I was searching for it on this website and was surprised that I had never posted here.  It’s a digitally enhanced version of one of my most popular images – Break of Dawn.  (See the original HERE)  The original is a wonderful color image.  It would be my favorite of the two, but I also like the aged look this one receives from the monochrome and textured effects.

Night Watch Ending

Sunrise, Winter, Frozen, Lake Michigan, Kewaunee, Lighthouse
This was a glorious Sunday morning on the shore of Lake Michigan at Kewaunee, Wisconsin. This is a pre-sunrise shot. The colors were so vivid, I actually had to pull back the saturation.  Even so it still may seem a little over done.

Winter Blues

Winter, Cold, Ice, Frozen, Lake Michigan, Sunrise, LighthouseAs you know, winter has been reluctant to release its grip on Northeast Wisconsin. This is a scene that reminds me of the battle between warmth and cold. The cold seems to be winning, preventing the sun from having its full effect. We’re all believing for the sun to triumph, the ice and snow to melt and warmer summer breezes to induce the gentle sound of waves on Lake Michigan’s shore.

This is a view of the Kewaunee, Wisconsin lighthouse shortly after sunrise…as seen from the snow and ice-covered beach. To view a larger, more detailed version, click on the photo.

Weathered

Algoma, WI, Lighthouse, Winter, Cold, Frozen, Ice, Lake Michigan
The evidence of a harsh winter clings to the Algoma, Wisconsin lighthouse and pier. This is a view from Algoma’s harbor, on the western shore of Lake Michigan.

The title not only referrers to ice and snow, but to the pinkish color of the lighthouse as well. Typically, the Algoma lighthouse (or pier light) is a vibrant red.  However, an inferior paint, applied a few years ago, has faded to a chalky pink. Thankfully, I’ve heard a fresh coat of paint is planned later this year.

The Frozen Wondra

Frost, Mist, Fog, Lighthouse, Kewaunee, Cold, Winter
When extremely cold temperatures combine with the open water of Lake Michigan, it creates a foggy atmosphere. Take a calm morning – with no hint of a breeze – and mix the misty moisture in the air with those extremely cold temperatures and it will freeze to practically everything as a thick, but fluffy, frost. Wonderful stuff.

In the background, of course, is the well-known Kewaunee, Wisconsin pier and lighthouse.

Heading for Open Water

Fishing Boat, Ice, Cold, Winter, Sunrise, Lighthouse, Kewaunee, Lake Michigan
A commercial fishing boat (the Oliver H. Smith) breaks its way through the ice of the Kewaunee, Wisconsin harbor on their way to the open waters of Lake Michigan. 

The ice in the harbor was thick enough to make getting out a challenge and it took quite a while for the boat to break through.  It would push and crunch its way into the ice, traveling 20 or 30 feet at a time before it would be halted.  Then it would back up and take another run at it…for the next 20 or 30 feet…back up and repeat until it finally got to open water. This shot shows it clear of the solid ice, heading out of the harbor.   I’ve included a short video of the struggle below.

The Oliver H. Smith, is a commercial fishing boat built in 1944 at Kewaunee Shipbuilding and Engineering Co. during World War II.  It was purchased in 1999 and is operated by Lafond’s Fish Market in Kewaunee.
