Lake Michigan Birch

This is probably my favorite shot I’ve taken along the North shore of Lake Michigan. It’s a stretch of beach I’ve become intimately familiar with through my years of traveling between Michigan’s peninsulas. In this particular case, I really liked the backlighting on the tree and the grass, and was happy with the amount of clouds and waves as well. The thing about landscape photography is that you can’t schedule or plan your subject without a good deal of gambling.
