SCENIC SUNDAYS: Water

Photo credits: Luke


Looking straight down through the clear waters of Lake Michigan at the rocks below the surface.

The colors of the rocks, when bounced off the sun, are absolutely gorgeous.

In this photo, you see seagulls perched on top of the remains of a long-ago abandoned Lake Michigan pier near the ghost-town of Glen Lake on the Leelanau Peninsula.




Genesis 1:9 (KJV)
And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear, and it was so.

10: And God called the dry land Earth, and the gathering together of waters called he Seas; and God saw that it was good.


Genesis 1:20

And God said let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.

21: And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

22: And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.

Wonderful pictures, Michigan must be a truly beautiful place. Visited once near Detroit to attend a wedding, but have never really seen the state.
Always look forward to your pictures and Blog.

We love northern Michigan! We're thinking of going up there next summer. Any thoughts on a good state park to camp at either near Porcupine Mountains or the Leelanau Peninsula?
