That's a great looking sunset Rob, I didn't know you were still here in the lakes area. Or are you just back on another trip?

Mike,

I was home for close to a month, I think. I was back in Rensselaer IN for two weeks surrounded by cornfields. I finished up there on Saturday the 23rd and decided to try a few Lake Michigan lights on the 24th, and a couple Lake Erie lights in Ohio on the 25th on my way home. Interestingly it was in Ohio on my way home that I came across something unexpected. When trying to go out to Cedar Point I found that I had to go past a guardhouse on the way there. Some young kid told me the light was closed and I'd have to turn around and leave. I wasn't in the mood to argue so I left, but the more miles I left behind me the more I think I should have pressed the issue a little bit.

Another shot a few minutes later. I think I prefer the lights silhouetted as opposed to seeing detail in them.

I don't think pressing the issue would have helped at Cedar Point. The light is their property as far as I know, and they'd be in the right to keep anyone out.

Butit's good that you were able to get back out this way and get some good photography in. I too like the silhouetted shot, very nicely done.

I think you got it ...

I think the broken sky around the sunset giving way to the the irregular layers of the reds, yellows, oranges and greens ... I did see greens ... works well .... and I agree ... silhouette for sure ... more detail on the lights would have detracted from the sunset ...

Thanks for sharing ... Happy New Year!

I like both shots. The first for detail and the second for getting both lights in the picture.

Very nice, Robin! I enjoyed looking (and re-looking) at them, over and over again. The cloud formations seemed particularily intense. Did it storm after you took those shots...or did it just 'pass over?'

Thanks!

Brent,

I left Grand Haven, gassed up the truck, and headed across Michigan towards Marblehead OH that evening. It started raining shortly after getting gas. It wasn't heavy, but it was steady. I can't say how long it may have lasted there.
