crashing waves on Lake Michigan

    Newer Older

    After watching the 5:00 news my husband informed me "there were big waves on the lake" so we jumped in the car for the 45 minute drive to South Haven, MI to see them. The husband and kids lost interest in the heavy winds after a short period. So they walked up the hill to eat dinner at Clementine's restaurant leaving me and a dozen other photographers standing on the beach.
    I couldn't drag myself away from these scenes of waves crashing and beautiful sunset lighting changes, so it was after dark before I made it up to the restaurant, since it was a school night for the kids, I had to get my dinner to go. But it was so worth it.

      Gorgeous shot!
      That South Haven light house is a photographers dream come true judging from all the great photos of it in Lake Michigan Weather. It also must be the sturdiest structure ever built considering all the big waves crashing against it, and the tons of ice it has to bear in the winter.

      That is a fantastic shot! I live within a couple miles of the lighthouse and visit often, but I have not seen as beautiful a photo as this of our beloved lighthouse!
