I went up to Lake Superior National Lake Shore with a couple of friends last October to photograph fall color. We wondered in the forest for a couple of days. The fall color was rather unimpressive, so we decided to head to the beach. This is a place I visited a few years ago. What always intrigues me here is a tiny waterfall on the Miners Beach. It is only about 4 feet high and rather ordinary. In upper Michigan where water falls are abundant, many people probably won’t bother to take the camera out of bag. However, the real attraction is the rock underneath the falls. At sunset, the rock is lit up by sunset. The ledges of rocks turns into golden lines that lead to the water fall.
This time, we photographed sunset as usual. Just when the light started to fade away and we were ready to leave. The whole sky towards west explored in red and Lake Superior water looked like on fire. At that moment, blue, red and golden lights came together signing a nature’s symphony with the tiny water falls stood proudly on the Miners Beach. I quickly took a few more shots of my favorite water fall before the light totally faded away. It was one of the most spectacular sunsets I experienced. I looked at my LCD screen and smiled.
