The Lake Michigan Sky at Dusk Filled With Icy Waves

Well I hope you’re not yet sick of my Lake Michigan pictures, because it’s only January and we have a few more months of gorgeous winter icecano shoreline. This is one of about three dozen pictures I took from this vantage point. I knew instantly that this was my favorite by how the waves look like they’re taking a bite out of the icy shoreline while winking at you. The Great Lakes are pretty incredible, I’m fortunate to gaze upon them often.

Lake Michigan Today

The view from above Lake Michigan was quite stunning today.

Invasive Bighead Carp in the Wisconsin River

Invasive Bighead Carp have been found in the Wisconsin River. I wonder how much time we have to canoe and fish it before the invasive species take over. This is a picture from this past summer. I was just talking with a guy last night about how they’re selling their Northwoods family cabin on a lake because since the invasive mussels there is no longer any good fishing, and with the algae blooms the water is mucky and unfit for waterskiing and the like. We continue to degrade our natural resources of freshwater because it’s easier and cheaper in the immediate.¬†Will we leave the world better for the children we’ve brought into it? It doesn’t appear so.

Saturday Night Lightning

From what I’m told this is heat lightning. It was odd, seemed to emanate from nowhere in particular, and rarely did you ever see a bolt. For awhile I thought there was a kid in a backyard playing with a high intensity light. Couldn’t hear any thunder. Funky.
