Bull...

 My son-in-law loves his cows and bulls...they are belted callaways and really quite nice friendly folk...I do not remember if this is the bull or a cow.  The Bull has a ring in it's nose.  There are some that do not like to be petted and scratched...but most like him as much as he likes them...

Lighthouse...

Last summer, we spent some time in Mackinac City just south of the Mackinaw Bridge into the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.  It's a beautiful area with much history.  This was taken in the park just east of the bridge.  The lighthouse is not operating, but it does look nice with the crescent moon...

Solstice...





Happy Winter Solstice...The moon is waxing to be full for Friday and Christmas...Raining in Michigan...again, it will be the winter that wasn't...painful for restaurants and hotels who depend on the snowmobilers to come to our State...oh well...

Another sunrise...


The sunrise and sunsets around here has been very interesting and hard to ignore this autumn...even though the lake is not frozen or even cold in December...strange...

Autumn...

When the summer season is over and it's is time to get things put away so that they will survive the winter weather to come, we put picnic tables to lean against trees or boats or logs...anything so that the snow will fall some and not accumulate so much...it makes for nice photos...

Sunset...again...

A week or so ago, we had this tremendous sunset; my phone did not take the same photo...it is said that the smoke in the atmosphere from the fires out west are giving us such nice sunsets...

I took it to a critique at our photo club and he said it looked like some kind of wedding veil...

Splash

We had some heavy duty winds around here this week...it make Lake Michigan very angry and she took it out on the lighthouses and beaches...

Ripples

Since the number of residents at the lake has dwindled and the lake is very quiet and smooth in the mornings, I've been taking the rowboat out for some much needed exercise...

This is all reflections of trees, leaves, a cottage building...the ripples are from the rowboat...and there is a bit of green bloom floating...it was an interesting photo...

Fungus

This fungus was about 1 1/2' across...I've never seen one this size...plus it had the ripples and water in the center for critters...it lasted about 2 weeks in the brush pile and then faded to brown and mush...so cool...

Foggy Morning

This appears to be a black and white of the morning haze on the lake...the reflection of the bench is nice...
