Sun Ship
A Great Lakes freighter appears to be transporting the setting sun as it heads northward on Lake Michigan on this beautiful spring evening. After their winter tie-up, it is good to see these proud ships back plying the Great Lakes. Making this shot caps off an exciting and diverse Week 17 shooting day that began more than 18 hours earlier when Brad woke me up in the middle of the night to tell me the Northern Lights were beckoning.

Lake Michigan Mirage - Panoramic
My hat's off to all of the Great Lakes sailors who have to work on Christmas Day and many other holidays.
