A winter day in autumn


I took this photo from the banks of Lake Huron this past September. We were enjoying our drive north into Michigan, and stopped to capture a few photographs, including this cool shot.

This photo feels cold to me. It has such great color, and includes so much context and details. A beach, lake, blue sky and those clouds are amazing. Does it look cold to you?

It is funny how our memories are triggered by photos from the past. Perhaps if I didn’t have such a vivid memory of that day, I would not see the ‘cold’ in the photo. It was windy and cold. It was a autumn day, but it felt like winter!
