Spectacular image from Friday, 3/25/11.

Light on the Water

Still cold, but sunny!
With lots of clouds for the sun to try to elude, so lots of interesting shadows on the water.
Amazing contrast. All from Thursday, 3/24/11.

More Winter

Brown, angry waves. From Wednesday, 3/23/11.

Winter Redux

After last week's springlike weather, winter returned with a vengeance this week, with sub-freezing temperatures, harsh winds, and a few dustings of snow. So the Lake was looking pretty brown most of the week. From Tuesday, 3/22/11.

Big Moon

There's an extra special full moon rising tonight.
So I took some extra special pictures of it shining on our beloved Lake.
A lovely walk to the beach with my lovely family to end a lovely week.

Chicago Scenes #3

I just love this photo, a view of the entrance to the harbor near the Adler Planetarium. The breakwater and lighthouse look so nautical. And it was such a lovely day. For full effect, click to enlarge. From Wednesday, 3/16/11.

Chicago Scenes #2

This photo of the Lake was taken from the 103rd floor of the Sears--er--Willis Tower. From Wednesday, 3/16/11.

Chicago Scenes #1

This seagull flew into my shot--I love the determination in his flight.
A more conventional view.
And if you didn't already realize that these Lake Michigan pics were taken from the Adler Planetarium, here's a photo of a seagull on Copernicus' head to seal it. From Wednesday, 3/16/11.

Training Day

This is not a great photo as it is taken from a moving train. This is just south of Waukegan, Illinois. I do like the sparkling sun on the water. From Wednesday, 3/16/11.

A Blue Streak

Nice stripe along the horizon. A little more sun again today.

Sweet Sunshine

The elusive sun has decided to come out from behind the clouds for a bit lately. The rest of the week looked just like last week: gray, rainy, cloudy. From Thursday, 3/10/11.

Blue Milestone

Pretty photo of water, sky, clouds at dusk today. Lakemichiblog surpassed 25,000 visits today. I never would have imagined when I started this in September 2008. Thanks to all of you.

Thursday, March 3, 2011


I know, I know. How can anyone think this is dull? But really, we've had brown water and clear skies for over a week now (on the weekdays anyway) and I have been busy, so not as many pics. Maybe the show will move on to a new plot soon. From Wednesday, March 2.
