Moonset

I post this as part of the Weekly Photo Challenge (Rise/Set).  This is a moonset taken at a long exposure in Grand Haven, Michigan.  But in reality, any moonset like this is really the reflection of a sunrise/sunset since it is borrowed light. 🙂

Definitely got a bit of lens flare on the next one!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Sunrise/Sunset

Sunset over Lake Michigan in January, when the ice extended for miles offshore.

Sunrise Trailing Crescent Moonrise

The moon was no longer visible within minutes of taking this photo.  This is really my favorite phase of the moon, and my favorite time of day to photograph it when conditions line up.  I took this photo from one of my favorite places, a park along the Grand River in Michigan, minutes from where I work.  I stop by here frequently before heading into the office.

Grand Rapids Flooding

In the End Winter Is Fleeting

A couple more photos from February, when the Grand River was almost entirely frozen over in downtown Grand Rapids, MI.  This same river was badly flooded a mere week later.  See this post for pictures of the flooding.  To a native of the south like me, this scene is otherworldly.
