Lens-Artists Photo Challenge – Lakeshore

I was sorry to have missed the past couple of LA Challenges but I have finally caught up with everything after a hectic few weeks and now I can spend some time looking through the photo files. Amy has chosen Seascapes or Lakeshores as the subject for this week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge and I found a few shots that might fit the bill. The first one was taken in downtown Chicago along the edge of Lake Michigan which, in the city, very often consists of nothing but concrete slabs.

Below, part of the shoreline at Whitefish Point on Lake Superior in Michigan. The song ‘Edmund Fitzgerald’ kept running through my head as I stood looking out over the scene. It’s hard to imagine these calm lake waters becoming rough enough to sink a ship weighing 26,000 tons.

The image above shows part of the shoreline of Antelope Island on the Great Salt Lake in Utah.

Below, a little patch of lakeshore on Mackinac Island, overlooking the mighty Mackinaw Bridge.

  1. So glad you are back to Lens Artists PC. These are great selections for the lakeshores, and beautifully captured. 🙂
    … sink a ship weighing 26,000 tons, unbelievable.

  2. Great photos…just checked on Google maps where they are! I love the driftwood on the beach and all those smooth pebbles…I can just about hear the waves lapping over them!

  3. Beautiful seascapes, Sue. You’ve picked a few places I’ve visited–most notably the Chicago shoreline. I can never get over the fact that this coast is right at the edge of a major city. I’m glad you’re back!
