Vol XVII – #024 – It Was What It Was

(Report by Jim) In honor of Earth Day, we go back to March of 2003, when I was still shooting film. These is the first time I ever saw the “Ice Caves” up near Northport. The earth serves up some marvelous artwork day after day, year after year, century after century. I think it requires us to respect it enough… Read more »

Vol XVII – #023 – Diversions, Reflections, Cheese, Spörck and Snow

(Report by Jim)  In celebration of Fishtown opening up for the season, I am going back in time to the incredible record snow of 2013-14. This is what it looked like IN MARCH. We predicted an average if not low year that season and boy, were we off. The winner of the contest won with the highest guess out of… Read more »

Vol XVII – #022 – What Lies Beneath

(Report by Jim)  This image is from 2/28/2012. Old shipwreck wood on none other than Van’s Beach. But it’s covered up now. Lake Michigan was pretty low on this date. From the year 2000 through 2012, the level of Lake Michigan and Huron was below the historical mean level after being at a 10 year high in 1998. In 2013… Read more »

Vol XVII – #021 – When We Were a Couple of Kids

(Report by Jim) Coming in a little late today, I know. Keith is slowly recovering. We haven’t had an Erhardt Peters day in a while, so I thought I would show some that we rarely see. The first photo may or may not be of EP as a kid. I can’t say for sure if the title was auto-biographical or… Read more »

Vol XVII – #020 – The Tax Man Cometh

(Report by Jim) If you haven’t started your taxes, better get on it! The weather has also been pretty taxing lately as has been the bug Keith is currently battling with. He thanks everyone for their well wishes! The photos today are from back when I was up there last month. We have an exciting project in progress related to… Read more »

Vol XVII – #019 – Meggen’s Monday

It may be gray today, but blue skies are there, above the clouds… we caught a glimpse or two of sunshine over the weekend.  The Record Eagle published an article on our website. See it here:  http://www.record-eagle.com/news/northern_living/the-leland-report-begins-th-year/article_9fa2870c-4929-57a4-8868-d9480a31b899.html      

Vol XVII – #017 – A Spring Day

Keith is feeling a little under the weather so I am filling in today with some throwbacks. Today’s photo was taken almost 14 years ago in May of 2003. The condition of the entrance to the harbor is strikingly similar to today. All of that was cleared out by the end of 2003. The second photo was taken in May… Read more »
