Light at the End of the Shortest Day

(through the windshield, obviously)

There are many advantages to being a passenger, but one I appreciate most, perhaps, is having my attention and hands free to capture scenes along the road. Bright sun burst through the clouds late on Tuesday afternoon. What a ride!

Above and directly below were scenes along M-22 on the west side of the peninsula, and the remaining three come to you from Eagle Highway.

Fall Color Beginning, Close Up, Popp Road

Some turning color is vivid, other bits subtle, but there are marvelous close-up scenes along every Leelanau road these days, and they seemed especially vibrant after yesterday's rain and today's early morning fog.

Morning views across Lake Leelanau were wonderful, too. "Look, Sarah!" I would say. But she was too busy sniffing the ground, enjoying her own private symphony.
