Sky Watch Friday




These pictures were taken during the same trip as my last post. This is the view where water meets sky on Lake Superior near the eastern entrance of Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. The top view is looking east toward the Grand Sable Dunes and the town of Grand Marais, and the view on the bottom is looking west toward the Au Sable Point lighthouse. If you look very closely near the farthest point, you will see a white spot which is the lighthouse.

You've captured that mysterious feeling of
Superior. So much hidden below the surface.
I think you have to be from Michigan to feel
these things.

I need to come around more frequently I
see I've missed a few things. Love the
lamp covered with snow.

These photos are so beautiful. It's such a pretty day in your photo that I'm especially appreciating with the weather we've been getting over here.

Lovely photo Shannon. I always find it hard to comprehend that such a large mass of water is not salty

Fantastic post for SWF. I don't think you need to be from MI to understand the mystery of Superior. I spent a week there many years ago and it's not to be forgotten. My husband and I would like to kayak at this very place some day soon. Thanks for sharing.

Your lakes are just so vast and amazing. They seem to go on forever like the oceans. It must be beautiful to take it all in.

Yes, they are breathtaking. Superior especially. They are quite cold, but they have no salt. If you can get past the cold, they are great to swim in, especially the lower lakes, Erie, Michigan, and Huron, which are a little more bearable.
