I've been trying to get this picture for almost two years now. It was definitely two winters ago that I realized the potential for a nice shot. First I didn't have my camera, then I didn't have time. Then the sky wasn't blue. Then the sun was in the wrong place. Then it was summer and I learned that you don't get the same effect at all when the leaves are on the trees. And around and around it went with the necessary elements not all coming together. Then today, I was in town, with time, with the camera, with the leaves down, with the sun to the west, with the sky blue...
The white birch are planted beside a factory building. Who knew it would make such a great picture?
And here's the freebie, a long shot looking toward Ludington from the south end of town. The tower on the left is the courthouse, and the church is Emmanuel Lutheran. There isn't anywhere I've found (from the ground) to get a good shot of the city, but this shows a little bit.
