Lens-Artists Challenge #139 – Special Moments

“No coward soul is mine,
No trembler in the world’s storm-troubled sphere:
I see Heaven’s glories shine,
And faith shines equal, arming me from fear.”

~ Emily Brontë

September 16, 2017 was my last stay at Big Sable Light. I got up early to watch the sunrise. The extra discomfort was rewarded with a spectacular sunrise and the luxury of having a popular Michigan destination all to myself.

First I walked north towards Nordhouse Dunes where I accidentally disturbed two beach campers in a pup tent. No photo..respecting privacy. (Yes, I have their photo, yes I asked first. No, it was a special morning. Let them have their moment.)

I then walked back to catch the ‘new’ boardwalk back to my room before the others awakened.

    1. I love shooting those sinuous paths they make through the sand. Somewhere I have shots of them covered with frost. This place is one of those in-between/out of time places. I believe I have video of it in earlier posts. I used to be a volunteer light keeper.

  1. Travelling up there is still on our bucket list. I’ll certainly keep the lighthouses in mind. Having been a volunteer keeper must have been a great experience.

  2. I’ve not watched the sunrise on the beach in many years. It’s been too long. Your post reminded me that I want to get back to working on my New Jersey lighthouse project.

    Thank you for sharing.
