Marquette Harbor Light After The Storm
A brief storm passed over the Marquette Harbor Lighthouse leaving the end-of-day warmth while cool and stormy clouds linger over Lake Superior
Tahquamenon Falls, Upper Peninsula, Michigan. There is no denying that this is a beautiful place in the summer and also in the fall when colors are at peak. But, for me, I love winter and Tahquamenon Falls is at its best in winter - especially following a snowfall. The park is quiet, the air is crisp and filled with the clear sound of the rushing waterfall, and more often than not, I have the place to myself to reflect and enjoy.
This is at the beginning of a hiking trail in the Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge in North Carolina's Outer Banks. I didn't see any alligators or bears (which is what I was hoping for...) but I saw beautiful landscapes and a lot of other wildlife. The weather was awesome because of the outskirts of Tropical Storm Bonnie - nice dramatic skies and constantly changing light....
