This month's image, "Sunrise with Cloud," was taken on the dog beach in Evanston while I waited for Mike, Nillie and Molly to join me. One of those is a human and two are adorable, energetic dogs. We were shooting a commission ("dogs running on the beach at sunrise") — see the result here. The three of them get up early most days to enjoy some exercise, the lake and the sunrise.
I like that people find ways to be near the lake and incorporate it into their lives. Even for a few minutes, it helps to stop and listen to the waves, see the water and appreciate its beauty.
