Family Time

This was taken on a recent trip to the U.P. while enjoying the sunset from Black Rocks at Marquette’s Presque Isle. The few evenings I tried to do some sunset photos that trip the weather didn’t really cooperate to provide the right kinds of clouds (almost none) so I ended up doing a lot more of the silhouette of people kind of thing.

Clouds & Ice

When is a picture of a lighthouse even cooler than a lighthouse? When it’s hidden by frozen waves.
