Good Day to Go Sailing

leave a comment »

I was in South Haven, Michigan, to photograph the lighthouse which can be seen to at right at end of a long pier extending out into Lake Michigan.

The lighthouse guards the entrance to the harbor, which is a channel that makes for a good place to watch the boats come and go.

A sailboat is motoring out into the lake and will have plenty of wind in its sails once it unfurls them.


Peaceful Sunday Morning

It was mid morning on the Sunday of Labor Day weekend 2016. I had driven to Westfield, New York, in search of a new lighthouse to add to my collection of photographs.

There is a park attached to the public boat launch at Barcelona Harbor that also features a nice view of Lake Erie.

What struck me about this location was how peaceful it was. The water was still, the air fresh and all was quiet.

A few people were getting ready to launch their boats to enjoy a beautiful day on the lake.

No one seemed to be stirring over on these docks. Perhaps it was too early and they would be down later to go sailing or boating.
