Traverse City, Clinch Marina 2015
The gold tones and shadows in this shot can only be captured at a sunrise or sunset.
This is one of my favorite times while on vacation in at Clinch Marina this Summer. We were there for five days because the wave height on Lake Michigan was at eight feet!
Thank you for stopping by, and please don’t forget to share with your friends on Facebook! OK, see you soon.

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Monochromatic.”
As a graphic designer, my eye is trained to automatically find contrast and balance in my compositions. This image of a fireworks display from the fourth of July this year, has a rich gradation of pink to burgundy. Even though this shot is monochromatic, it is still full of color and energy. Capturing this color on my iPhone was surprising to me.
What surprising photos have you uncovered this Summer?

“From Every Angle.”
The tiny single flower caught my eye along side of the dock.
I’m glad I took the time to photograph this. Looking forward to seeing how it’s changing, or if there are more, later in September.

A look inside the pretty speckled yellow and orange flower.
After further research, I decided to reference, Artfire.com. where I found the definition of the flower, and its medicinal uses by Bonnie Klisiewicz Bartley.
“The Jewel weed grows up to five feet tall and likes a cool shady environment,
often along a river bank. There is a clear, liquid inside the stems and along the
nodes. This sappy liquid is often applied to the skin as a relief for various irritations
like poison ivy and insect bites. The morning dew sparkles on the leaves like little jewels because they are water-repellent, thus giving it the name, Jewel Weed.”

“Today Was a Good Day.”
We are always happy to visit Traverse City, Michigan. Traveling by boat is the only way in my opinion, because the water and the scenery in Grand Traverse Bay is gorgeous.
It takes us almost three hours to travel from Lake Charlevoix to Clinch Marina where we were docked. In this mini “mesh” photo gallery is a pic of a sail boat, and my husband on our power boat. Also, at Clinch Park, I quickly grabbed my camera to capture the cutie patootie toddler, who at first, seemed to be walking all alone. I love taking pictures, and there are lots of opportunities to capture beautiful sunrises and sunsets too.
Look forward to posting more soon.

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Inspiration.”
Inspiration to create can come from where I feel balance. Balance in a color scheme I’m working on, or even in that feeling of accomplishment. Completing a challenging day at work, then returning home to receive a big hug from my husband where he meets me at the doorway, every day. And of course, the colors of the light, softly painted into an amazing summer sunset at the Northport Marina.
What inspires you?
Thanks for reading! YOU are awesome! Bye for now,

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 Chart
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.

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Symbol.”
Sunrise at the Marina at Northport, MI — Photo by Tresa Meyer Clark
A customer of mine told me that anchors have a lot of meaning to her and that she was having some health issues. When I asked her to explain, she said, “an anchor is a symbol of strength and stability.” She inspired me to make more anchor jewelry and I wrote this.
Anchor your happiness, anchor your love.
Anchor your faith, hope and healing, from the stars up above.
From the heavens to the sea, anchor happiness,
Anchor your dreams.
Creating a lovely presentation is important to me. I incorporated a nautical chart that my Dad gave me into my package design. Creating the photo and the process of getting great angles and lighting is also part of my artistic process. My Customers love the attention to detail when they receive their package in the mail from “MeyerClarkCreative”.
“Stunning is an understatement!! This is my second anchor necklace from Tresa and I love them both. Her attention to detail is incredible and I wear one of my necklaces daily. She is an absolutely pleasure to do business with and I will be making many more purchases from her for the holidays! She is incredibly talented and the pictures do not do her works of art justice! Thank you Tresa!”
