Vol XV #219 – Meggen’s Monday

Sunrise, sunset… a canopy of fall clouds makes a light-catching backdrop both just after sunset last night and just before (an earlier/more normal-feeling) sunrise this morning. Those who were driving anywhere just after 7 am were treated to an array of pinks.    

Vol XV #216 – A Nicer Day Than Yesterday

Indeed, a much nicer day than yesterday.  The 10 day forecast is calling for some pretty nice weather with the exception of tomorrows 90% chance of rain.  Still a lot of color, both in the trees and on the ground.

Vol XV #215 – A Blustery Day

  A dark and windy beginning along with showers… ugh  Not so for Elijah Allen above.  I nearly got blown away by a gust of wind on Van’s Beach.  40 years ago, Oct. ’75, on a much nicer day than today I took the picture below.  Today it’s just an open field barren of structures.

Vol XV #184 – Meggen’s Monday

The super moon did, in fact, emerge from behind the cloud cover last night. I didn’t see the full eclipse, but caught it during the “second half.” We’ve been having a run of incredibly beautiful days, both with clear skies and otherwise… still thoroughly enjoyable. Later, the clouds began to obscure the moon again. Lake Leelanau, Sunday. Good Harbor Bay, Saturday…. Read more »
