Early signs of autumn in the U.P. of Michigan. Captured this yesterday evening while traveling on US41 between Rapid River and Marquette. There were a few pockets of awesome color along the drive but still plenty of green on much of the trees. 9/21/13 - South Marquette County, MI.
Made a quick, 8.5-mile hike to the Chapel Beach area of Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore on Friday, Sept. 6th. Rain made for challenging conditions but it did manage to break a few times for some great shooting. All-in-all, a great day!
This past weekend’s view of a starry night and the Milky Way over Lake Michigan, Big Bay de Noc. The center silhouette is a historic wood burning structure from the early logging days of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The city glow on the right is from Escanaba, MI and the red light on the left is a comm. tower on the Garden Peninsula. Nahma, MI - 8/31/13
Drove out to Harlow Lake on Monday evening to capture the peak of the Perseid Meteor shower. It was a pretty impressive display with quite a few bright streakers crossing the sky. Unfortunately I was only able to photograph one decent meteor. All-in-all, a beautiful night to enjoy the stars. Marquette, MI
Today’s early morning view of the Northern Lights over the Marquette Harbor Lighthouse on Lake Superior. It was a beautiful night to watch the auroras, see a super bright Iridium Flare and plenty of meteors from the upcoming Perseids meteor shower. Marquette, MI - 8/5/13.
