Sunset over Lake Michigan

We are heading off to Michigan tomorrow afternoon to enjoy the fourth of July weekend. I took this photo last summer but finally got around to working on it. I was standing on top of one of the dunes overlooking Lake Michigan while the sun set on a perfect summer day. I thought the beach grass would make an interesting element in the foreground while still minimizing the rather boring and cloudless sky. I added a hint of texture (Antique Paper) to the sky to give it a little bit of interest because in general I think skies without any texture tend to be rather ‘blah’ (technical term?).

  1. Enjoy the holiday and the fireworks! I agree… skies without texture look pretty blah. It totally should be a technical term, BTW.

  2. nice photograph. I agree with the point that skies normally look “blah” without any cloud or any texture. Nice work up there. 🙂 Happy 4th of July. Cheers 🙂
