The sky over Lake Michigan was magnificent yesterday during our weekly ride around Pere Marquette ovals in Muskegon.
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)
I call our resident male cardinal(s) Kookaburra, not because of their “laugh” (thank heavens.. have you ever heard a real Kookaburra?) but because he truly is the king of his territory. I’ve watched epic battles between the males fighting for the front yard feeder. When he wins a battle he perches high on his favorite branch and sings his victory song.
I guess the loser got the back yard territory.
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.
Daisy foliage (top right) is just anticipation.
I wish I could bottle the scent of that peony.
