It’s finally March

..but no sign of Spring yet. There’s still a lot of ice on Lake Michigan.

On my ride around the ovals at Muskegon’s Pere Marquette beach I grabbed some pictures and even uploaded them this time! These were captured Saturday, March 2, 2019.

God is good! Out of the blue He leads me to a photo-op. 

Usually this happens when I change my plans on a whim.  This time I walked out the door planning to take my usual morning walk in the woods but I forgot to put on mosquito spray, (they were buzzing around me), so I decided instead I’d get in the car and go for a ride with my camera.  I only rode around the block and even that was on a whim.  I was going to go a different route but a car coming up behind me made me decide to turn to get out of it’s way.

I saw how pretty the sunlight looked streaming through the trees so I pulled off on the shoulder of the road to capture a picture of it.  The biker startled me a little when he silently came up from behind and whizzed past as I was getting out of the car with my camera.  The timing was perfect!

Thank you Lord! (and biker)


A yellow tree and wind sail breaks the gloom of a cloudy day at Pere Marquette.

Good light would make these photographs more interesting.  What can I say?!  Nearly every time I’m at this beach (taking my mom for a ride) it’s mid day, so even on sunny days the light is not great during the time I’m here.

An HD image of a remnant of the 127-year-old piano factory in Muskegon Michigan.  It sat on Lakeshore Drive, on the property of the former Sappi paper mill.  The property has been renamed Windward Pointe and will be redeveloped.

It was a beautiful old building. I was sad to see it go.
