MISSAUKEE LAKE - THE WAY IT WAS

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 11 June 2018 in Landscape & Rural.

This is Missaukee lake in Lake City, Michigan, USA. The lake is not very deep but relatively large. Lake city lies in central Northern Michigan. Barbara, my wife, has ancestral family there and we had a wonderful time with them during our cartrip from Seattle to Vermont.

Barbara's cousin's Wanda and Jeff took us on a walk down to the lake at sunset time and i was delighted with the colors that appeared for us that evening. The motion on the lake was amazing and it did all kinds of cook stuff to the reflections from the beautiful sky....This is what it looked like....The Way it Was...on that wonderful evening....I hope you enjoy this;-)

We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."

::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
; Earth Wind and Fire
