Sunset Challenge, Indiana Dunes

Sunset on Lake Michigan
Sunset on Lake MIchigan, Indiana Dunes

Lynne: This is my first entry in the sunset challenge with photos from the Indiana Dunes. We made it most nights to the Lake at sunset. I took so many pictures that it has taken some time to sort through them. I have to remember the maxim: You can take 100 photos and have them all turn out bad.

I liked this one particularly because it shows the motion of the waves of Lake Michigan. I tried recording the sound of them but the low rumble that resounds in your body does not come through in my recordings. Perhaps you need all your senses, not just hearing, to truly know the dominion of such a body of water in motion.

Pet Photo–Mac the Black

Mac the Black, Labrador
I know it went in here...let me catch my breath.

This is Big Mac or the Mac Truck, my black labrador. I occasionally call him my Mac Attack, but mostly I call him my Macaroni.

He is out in the country trying to trail something. It could be a rabbit or a bug or maybe a whiff of deer. He doesn’t care. He just follows his nose.

Mackie  can be difficult to photograph as that black coat tends to become one big shape that hides the details of his eyes. I got lucky in this photo because his tongue is hanging out and the green leaves break up the black.
