Dull Finish

The final day in April is overcast and calm. 4/30/12.

All In

This photo has everything. Beautiful aqua water, blue horizon stripe, stunning clouds, and even a bit of tree. 4/25/12.

Real Meets Surreal

The brownish-gray water looks like a photo, while the sky looks like a watercolor. From 4/22/12.


I know. The ocean-dwellers scoff at the notion that this is fierce, but it was very windy and wavy all day on this day. For a lake, anyway. From 4/20/12.


I love the way all the lines in the sky and the reflection on the water are converging on the horizon, which is just slightly yellow. From 4/18/12.


A beautiful peachy-pink stripe on the horizon. From 4/16/12.


Okay, so maybe I should the masthead from " a daily photo of the Lake" to " an occasional photo of the Lake." I mean to post every day, I do, but life sometimes gets in the way. So here is an occasional from April 10. Late, but still beautiful.

Unlike last year, when Spring was delayed by a month, the buds are out early. From 4/05/12.

Silver + Cotton

From 3/29/12.

Blue + Cotton

From 3/28/12.


A storm brewing out on the Lake never really made it to shore, but the effect was still quite sinister. From 3/27/12.

Early Spring

Last year I posted a lot about how LATE spring was, this year it is the opposite.  No doubt, if you are a regular reader, you have noticed that we haven't had any ice on the lake this year. This spring, the purple carpet of flowers is a month early.  From 3/26/12.

Wedge Issue

That bank of clouds to the right looks like it is going to slice right into the water. From 3/26/12.


Purpley-blue water on 3/20/12.

Morning Rose

Sunrise over Lake Michigan, sometime in March. These are taken on two different days, with the phone camera, so I'm not sure of the dates.

Luck of the Irish

From St. Patrick's Day, 3/17/12. The park near my home.


From 3/16/12.


Calm late afternoon shot from 3/15/12.

Aqua Agua

That is an amazing color along the horizon. From 3/14/12.


Two young people walking together along the lake shore. I wish that I saw more of this. Sometimes I think I'm one of only a handful of people who pay any attention to this wonder outside our windows. From 3/13/12.
