Esch Road Beach Sunset


       An absolutely perfect sunset at Esch Road Beach finished a perfect day touring the Sleeping Bear Dunes NLS with my Fiance Robin. The cloud cover stayed throughout the entire evening, which tents to elude even the diligent visitor. 

       I didn't think I would need to use my fishing waders this evening, so I left them in the car. As my luck would have it, I did need them to frame a composition I couldn't resist of the Esch Road Beach bluff that was opposite of the sunset. I decided to take the trip into the freezing cold waters of Lake Michigan during fall and capture the photograph I had burning in my minds eye, despite the protest of my poor feet. All in all, the decision was well worth the effort and I came home with a view that was awe inspiring. I hope everyone enjoys.
