Since moving to Michigan, I have developed a love for taking pictures of sunsets. To be fair, I am snapping pictures on my iPhone, but I get great enjoyment from taking a picture at just the right moment that makes for a great visual.
In southwest Michigan, we are so blessed to have beautiful, diverse sunsets. Sometimes the sky lights up with pinks, purples and blues, but other times the sky is on fire with bright oranges and reds. Sometimes there are dark, heavy clouds, and other nights there is hardly a cloud in the sky. Each sunset is so unique.
I have become keenly aware of the sky around the time the sun is going to set. I closely monitor the position of the sun and the amount of clouds in the sky. I often race from the gym to Second Street to capture the sun dipping under the lake. (To my dismay-- Second Street isn't available right now due to erosion!)
Here are a couple of pictures I have taken since November. The winter rarely provides sunsets for us, but spring and summer are just around the corner!
