Crosswinds Marsh in lower Michigan is one of the places I’ve got a few times and never gotten a shot I was completely happy with. Yet, it feels like a place where I would get shots I love. It’s just far enough out of the way that I haven’t made it more than a few times so far. But if you haven’t been there and are anywhere near the south east corner of Michigan you should check it out.
This time that I’d visited, there were a lot of other people there, so it was difficult to set up a shot without people in it. This image was probably my favorite of three that I was “mildly satisfied” with. (The curse of being a creative person is that you’re rarely fully satisfied with your work.) What I liked about this one was the wooden walkway leading into the distance, and the clouds were fairly dramatic. (I didn’t photoshop any clouds into place in this instance.)
