Lake Michigan with a Cloud Frame

One of many paths leading to the beach at the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore in Beverly Shores.  This one happens to be at the old Red Lantern. The lake was starting to shift to its usual blue-green color as the sun emerged from behind a thick cloud band. Some puffy clouds kindly lingered to frame my shot.  If this were a clear day (no haze), and I were using a zoom lens, a tiny Chicago skyline would be visible at the horizon line in the center of the picture.
Linking to Skywatch Friday.

Nice water landscape of Lake Michigan. I spent many days on the Michigan side of this lake -- long ago. -- barbara

Very pretty- I wish I was looking at that instead of all these horrid storms headed my way.

The color palette is really pretty and the scene very soothing.
