Default Lake Michigan (not just for the faint of heart)

Our pier and harbor here is very cool and when the winds kick up it makes for some cool shots

I made a quick video of some of my favorite shots i have takin in last year or so here

the pics did not upload in high def so pardon the grainyness but you get the idea Turn up your speakers and enjoy one of my favorite spots in the world (no matter what time of day or night)

Cool. I love Great Lakes boating but most of my time is on the "sunrise side". Happy Thanksgiving.

I'm in Saugatuck, and I think you've captured the essence of Lake Michigan beautifully!

Great job.
