The rest of the photos today are of our beloved commercial… Read more »

Vol XX – #082 Never Get Tired of Floating

(Report by Jim) As the weather was especially beautiful this week, we are continuing with the floating theme. Yesterday was a sunset float on a 70s Cape Dory sailboat in Suttons Bay.

Sometimes in order to make a photo come out the way you envision, you need to go to the location…. and wait. Wait for all the elements to line up just so, and possibly run in between two locations, such as the moments in between the top photo and the one above. The Manitou Passage offers endless photo ops, from… Read more »
