Unusually warm February weekend

February 18 and 19, 2017 proved to be an unusually warm weekend on the lake shore with temperatures flirting with the 60 degree mark. I shot these pictures of the lighthouse at Pere Marquette beach Muskegon Michigan to celebrate the early arrival of “Spring” one month removed of the “scheduled” calendar date!

Lake Michigan photography

I love flowers and plants, but a close second is photographing Lake Michigan on my frequent walks. Hope you enjoy a few of my recent pictures………….

A Winter “Pun”-derland

I try to amuse myself in winter so I don’t dwell on the cold conditions and the remote existence from gardening activities. Thought I would share some pictures from my winter “pun”-derland with you as we mark the days off the calendar until the arrival of spring!

Oh deer....these cute little guys stopped by my backyard for a "tree"-t.....they're just trying to have a little "fawn"

Took this picture along the Lake Michigan shoreline. Thousands of sandy ice balls form when rolls of light snow are blown form the shore into water which is at or just below freezing. The rolls of snow are then tossed about in the chilly waters and mix with sand in the churning water, where wave action eventually shapes them into balls of sandy ice!
