I thought that it would be good to feature the Mighty Mac today as a lead up to Monday’s Labor Day Mackinac Bridge Walk. Michigan Nut (John McCormick) writes that he’s a life long Michigan resident and has been into landscape photography for over 30 years and says:
Many landscape photographers say the Midwest has a lack of scenery. What they’re missing is an untouched wilderness that stretches along miles of Great Lakes coastline. Nowhere in the United States will you find an area that more reflects the dramatic seasonal changes, beautiful winters, colorful Autumns and blooming springs. It is a continually changing landscape.
Situated between the wind- and wave-worn southern shores of Lake Superior and the usually calmer waters of Lake Michigan’s shore, and with Lake Huron to the southeast, Michigan is defined by forests and rivers, wetlands of immense size, and rocky, bluff-lined and sweeping sand shorelines. And with over 100 lighthouses, historic buildings and an ancient mountain range, Michigan offers more than any photographer could wish for. A weekend gives you a glimpse and a week a good look, but it takes years to see the majority of what Michigan has to offer.
Dive into his Flickriver and enjoy your weekend folks!
