Night and Day

EditA post of night and day photos on Mackinac Island…

A few days ago, I decided to try my hand at night photography up at Arch Rock. After biking in near pitch black conditions, I managed to reach the Arch with my friend, Sara Wright, who is a professional photographer, and she shared some tips with me as we took photos. Unfortunately, the moon came out and lit up our photos too much! I thought I’d try editing the pics as dark as I could without losing the stars. All in all, we were outside for about an hour or so before we realized some kind of frozen fog was descending on us and it was time to go home. It was a fun first experience for me of taking pictures of the stars.
On our way back we somehow got sidetracked onto some new trails and ended up losing our way… I was a little embarrassed as I feel I should probably know the island better, but I just don’t go out past Sugar Loaf very much! That’s basically where we got lost, and found ourselves on a gravel road out near the airport. But we kept going, the road eventually meeting up with a main road and we made our way home. It was definitely an island adventure!

The next day, I packed up my bags and headed off the island to spend Easter with my parents and sister. Although it’s still cold, the views recently on sunnier days has been great! Especially when the lake is involved. I always forget how clear the water is this time of year… anyway, I had to take a few photos around the boat dock before heading off the island:
