Apologies for the delay since my last post — it’s been a busy summer.  :) My photography has taken a back seat to work and travel for a while now, but I’ve managed to take my camera along with me here and there.  Now it’s just a matter of catching up on the processing!

Portage Point is a true gem – north of Manistee, Michigan but south of Frankfort.

Grand Haven, Michigan.  Nikon D80, Nikkor 24-120mm at 85mm, f/5.6, 1/20 sec, ISO 200.  Tripod mounted, but boy was it windy (guessing 50 knots or more – had to hold the tripod to keep it from blowing over).
