The aurora surprised us last night with an energetic display. We watched it for over an hour, dancing one way as the clouds moved the other, and the stars rotating still another. I wonder if the drivers of the passing cars noticed the faint light in the sky.

We were lucky to see this beautiful northern lights display last night before the clouds drifted in. Happy to share this view with a friend last night. Feel free to share this (and all my photos) with your fiends 😊

Fantastic Fence
After a fairly warm winter, we have had a kind of cool spring. The past couple of days have felt wonderfully warm πŸ™Œ

I went out chasing what I thought might be an amazing sunset. Instead, fog blew in, mostly obscuring the light. I still managed to capture a bit of color, lots of moodiness, and these sweet rays. Plus - sunset on the beach, so that's a win. πŸŒ…

The bloom is just about done, but I'm not quite done with it πŸ˜‰

Over the weekend we introduced some friends to morel hunting. After showing them one in the wild, we split up in the woods and continued our search. A few minutes later my friend alerts me that he's found something. Not wanting anyone to leave with false morels, I headed in his direction to see this. Thanks, Dave, for sharing your find with me. It was the highlight of the hunt for me!πŸ¦ŒπŸ„

I stood right here and brushed my teeth a couple weekends ago. Our campsite was only a few feet behind me. At 38 degrees and in a tent, it's one of the coldest nights I've spent, but look at that view. πŸŒ…β›ΊοΈ

The view of the Manitou Islands and the impressive Lake Michigan overlook bring loads of visitors to Pyramid Point - myself included. But I am always drawn to this creamy, dreamy stand of trees along the way! πŸŒ³πŸŒΏπŸ’š

Those last moments before the sun slips below the horizon are so sweet, and so brief. I'm always reminded of the scene in Macbeth. Out out, brief candle! πŸŒ…

We went from very summery weather earlier in the week to flurries last night. Michigan can't make up its mind about the temperature, but it's got sunsets in the bag πŸ™Œ
