Time. Captured. And held on to.

Benton Harbor Light, Michigan

My fingers still remember how they hurt as we walked on the frozen lake shore last evening while my heart smiles as it remembers the sight of the orange sherbet sun as it melted into the lake. Every time I have visited Michigan, I have been lucky to add atleast one lighthouse to my slowly-but-steadily growing collection of these sentries of time. And for that one reason alone I can claim that I lurrrrrrrrrve (that's one step beyond love :D) the Great Lakes State! This was shot at Benton Harbor in South West Michigan, yesterday. This weekend was good for the soul and I am happy about that too :)

Moi, this is stunning. The lighthouse shot doesn't look like a photograph. I thought it was a painting. It sounds like you had a magical weekend. We sure need those battery chargers every so often. That's what we are doing in about an hour. Going to Lake Tahoe (one of our favs.) for an early ,by just a few days, anniversary celebration. i hope I can take a few pictures. Not much snow which has all the snow bunnies so sad.

You were in Michigan! Hi!

@Moi : Awesome work! One last question... Do you photoshop? What do you use for cropping and stuff?

RD said...

I lived a few miles from there until last summer! I have pictures of this lighthouse in all seasons. It's beautiful. It's one of the few things I miss about living there. That and the fruit in the summer.

Kerri said...

What a wonderful world...and you capture it so beautifully! These sunsets are magnificent! Don't you love the way the colors begin softly and then finish boldly?
Love your vacation shots, especially the New Mexico panoramic views. Wow!
