This was taken on the north shoreline of a long strip of land that juts into Lake Erie from Cullen Park in Toledo. For a good while now, Lake Erie (at least on the Toledo end) has been having issues with algae blooms, to the point of becoming poisonous. One of the times I visited this same park, I couldn’t stay at the shoreline more than ten minutes because it smelled so bad. I’ve always liked Lake Superior and my home stomping grounds in Marquette, but it’s experiences like this that really drive home how lucky I was to grow up there.
From a photography point of view, I’d wished this were taken in the summer, so that there’d be full leaves on the trees, though the Fall emptiness kind of goes with the “icky” vibe I suppose.
