Vol XVIII – #97 – Night to Day and a Shoreline Cruise

(Report by Jim) A cloudless, moonless night usually means I’m going to step away from a conversation to hit my shutter button. Last night, Venus was very bright over the North end of Lake Leelanau. After it set, the rest of the galaxy came out. We had some fun with John Marshall and his daughter Scout taking long exposure star fields…. Read more »

Vol XVIII – #96 – Happy Birthday Mrs Leland Report

(Report by Jim) Sometimes you get lucky with the sunsets over the Manitou Islands and sometimes it helps to have a little bit extra in the foreground. I had some animal encounters this week on the lake. Don’t worry, the lab was perfectly happy where he was. His owner was not far away! I’m not sure about the turtle, though…. Read more »

Vol XVI – #117 – Chicago to Mac… Passing Through

  A cloudy and on the warm and humid side get-up.  Thunderstorms south of us causing a lot turmoil with the Mac Race overnight.  Best I could muster up with my telephoto lens is the picture below.  Clouds ruled most of the day with spurts of sunshine here and there. Town was really crowded.       

Vol XVI – #116 – A 5K Saturday

What a great day it turned out to be for whatever you wanted to do, especially running a 5K race.  Congratulations to Nick Amato, winner.   One of the DeVos family cruisers above, anchored out in front of Sleeping Bear Point.   Van’s Beach looking like a picture postcard.  Forecast for tomorrow… scattered thunderstorms.

Vol XVI – #114 – A Rainy Fishtown Day

Fishtown never shuts down, especially on a rainy day.  And like all rainy days, it stops and the sun comes out.  At least 6 people asked if it was alright if they petted Biscuit and of course my response, yes, but you have to have your picture with him.  This happens every day.  Below, one of the guys saw me in the parking… Read more »

Vol XVI – #112 – What’s Happenin?

  A busy time here in Lelandtown with art shows, 5K runs and Summinars.  Something for everyone.  Very impressive is the number of outstanding artists we have here in Leelanau County.  I’ve always aspired to be an artist of some sort since I was able to hold a pencil or crayon as child.  Later I wanted to be a cartoonist and taught… Read more »
