It’s Quiet on Beaver Island

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Half and Half.”

It was a quiet morning at the marina on Beaver Island. I decided to photograph the morning light and capture the stillness of the water, and its reflections from the lighthouse. This is Lake Michigan on a misty, gray morning in June. As I stepped off
the boat onto the dock, I remembered a photography tip from my Dad, “watch the horizon line, make it straight.” I quietly walked down the dock to an open boat slip, not to disturb the other boaters still sleeping. Normally, I don’t divide a landscape image in half
when I compose a shot, but this time it was a perfect opportunity to blend the sky
with the water.

Beaver Island is a great boating destination if you want to get away from crowds of vacationing people from down state, what we refer to in Michigan as, “fudgies”. It offers great sunsets, and a laid-back atmosphere. It is approximately 30 miles off the coast, with two ferry services from Charlevoix. It is the largest Island in Lake Michigan.

  1. Lovely shot. The sky and water are equally beautiful, I think it was nice of you to split the two right in the middle. Great choice, great eye. Looks like a great spot to relax and unwind. Look very peaceful.
