Shades of Blue

Well, I'm home from my trip to visit family in Northwest Indiana, so expect a change in scenery on the blog this week.  I'm starting the series out with a morning at the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. I thought it was interesting because I'm not sure I've ever seen Lake Michigan this shade of blue, and I've seen Lake Michigan A LOT! The sun was behind a cloud when I took this photo, and the clouds cleared not long afterword. Then the lake turned its usual shade of green-blue.  I suppose that's an industrial haze in the background, but it's a nice warm color compliment.  I meant to get up earlier, but slept in a little.  It looked like a beautiful pinkish sunrise from my window, so I regret not being more disciplined on my vacation since this was my only early morning with the camera and I think it would have been a beautiful sunrise at the beach.  I guess it's always good to have something still on my list for next time...beach sunrise.

Beautiful shot! Love the blue tones and the simplicity of the scene.

BTW - the Dalles Mtn Ranch photos I just posted were from a visit on April 9th (I'm always a little behind on my blogging). I'm sure the peak bloom has passed by now. But head to Dog Mountain or Tom McCall Point because flowers are just reaching peak bloom in these areas.
