Summer Sunset

As I sit here at my desk with a blanket wrapped around me on this chilly morning, I can’t help but wonder where the summer has gone. Maybe you’re all thinking I’m behind the times. (I mean, come on Sarah. Labor Day was weeks ago!) But the truth is, we still technically have four more days until autumn officially sets in. So, I’m celebrating the tiny bit of summer I have left with a few images from my favorite sunset of the season. These were shot on July 17, from the shores of Lake Michigan, the evening before Cassandra & Joe’s wedding. Nothing beats a Lake Michigan sunset.

The delicate colors, clouds, and waves converge to begin the series:

A few daisies join the party:

The colored light plays on the surface of a Petoskey Stone, the state stone of Michigan:

The drama goes into full swing:

More light plays with beach grass and rocks:

A shot directly into the sun produces a fun lens flare:

I went a little ways down the shore to catch the final moments amid some marshy grass:

And the colors of the night set in:

Nicole Haley - Ohh..I love these images. I think I’m going to be sad when summer’s officially gone (if it isn’t already). But fall colors are amazing too!September 18, 2009 - 9:41 pm
