Fire and Water
After a long day of shooting through sunshine, cold, rain, and snow along the northwest side of Michigan, we ended the evening at Pere Marquette Park in Muskegon Michigan. The wind had been blowing all day long at 30 to 40 miles per hour and given the temperatures around 40 degrees, it would have been easy to call it a day and skip this site. We arrived a little before sunset. Above us was a thick layer of clouds continuing the overcast conditions we had for most of the day. However, as soon as the sun moved below the low hanging clouds, I would tell that we were in for something special. The sunset did not disappoint. As the sun dropped to the horizon, we witnessed one of the most spectacular sunsets I have experienced along the western shores of Michigan. The winds were still strong, causing magnificent explosions of waves as they crashed into the south breakwater light. This photo was captured just as the sun disappeared from sight creating an explosion of color that backlit both the light the waves that splashed over it.
