Early Fall on the West Shore of Houghton Lake, Michigan, where the morning air is crisp and the sun rises with clouds, color and beauty. Every morning was different. Some mornings were so cloudy or foggy that the sun made a quiet, almost non-appearance for the day. Other days were glorious. Here is a taste of the last week of September, 2021.
We stayed last week at the Beachfront Hotel on the south shore of Houghton Lake, MI and had a balcony room. Several days, I enjoyed capturing the sunrise or sunset from the balcony. It was a beautiful view of the lake where I grew up. Days were spent on the west shore helping family with updating computers.
My childhood home was in a town surrounding one of the largest inland lakes. Whenever I go home to visit, I’m drawn to the lake in all seasons, during all weather. This fall, the sunsets were spectacular. All I had was my iPhone, but it proved to be more than enough. When the lake is still, the reflections are often as dramatic as the sky. Here are a few I captured in the moments before dusk. Click on an image to see it larger.
