Information and Insights on Lake Michigan 

Riding the Waves,,,

Waves are like a barometer of the lake's emotions. They might be calm, gentle ripples one day and angry, powerful breakers the next. Sometimes they are a contradiction, like this month's image. This large wave crashing under a sunny sky somehow seems more happy and exuberant than a roiling, storm-induced wave.

It's these ever-changing faces that bring the lake to life for me. The more I stop and take in its moods, the more I appreciate the vital role the lake plays in our lives. With my photography, I strive to capture as many of these moods and emotions as I can.
