Watery Moods

Just a couple of images in the dwindling light of yesterday afternoon. First is Portage Lake near Onekama. I love how the docks make orthogonal patterns and the ducks are like polka dots. The sun at the channel just makes it perfect.

But this one is my favorite. I finished my assignments just as the last light was fading, and I drove home mostly in the dark. The season for beaches has also faded. The blowing sands cover the benches and defy the fences which try to slow the drifting.

Both are great pictures. I thought that second picture was snow until I read that it was sand. A nice trick of the mind.

Title for the second image, Summer is Over.

I thought the same thing Ratty did. It looked like snow around that bench. Those winds must really be blowing for that bench to be almost covered

Ratty & Ann- in the low light it really is impossible to tell, isn't it! No snow for us yet, though.

Chuck- I think you've nailed the title.
