A Cool Flight Over Lake Michigan

Yesterday I was up in LaPorte as my parents are moving out of their house. I took a break from packing up boxes of my stuff to go out and make a photo. I was not feeling well yesterday so my shoot was cancelled. I was feeling the need to create. I still was not at 100%, but I had an idea for a photo. The photo above was not it. The ice that was around the lighthouse had moved out into the lake. The light was great though so I spent some time flying around the lighthouse.

The Shadow Rules

When I started flying I had some ideas of what I wanted to do. When I saw the shadow of the Lighthouse growing longer and longer I threw all of those ideas out of the window. The shadow was what was then driving my photos. I found a bunch of views that I liked, but right now this is my favorite photo from the day. I will have more tomorrow when I have had a little time to go through them all. Sometimes you just need to stop what you are doing and have a little fun.
