This photography challenge was particularly fun. It can be taken in so many different directions. The first photo is was taken from a non tourist area along Lake Michigan the summer of 2012 (it was one of the hottest summers I’ve experienced). I enjoy how the sunlight shines down on the water and provides the allusion of a platform or stage that you could figuratively dance on. The hot, burning sand is just a path leading to the water and sunlit stage. It’s the beginning of crossing into something beautiful.
This second photo reminds me of the beginning summer, it’s a simple breath of life.
