As most people know, I lean just slightly to the introverted side. Oh, who am I kidding, I am a screaming introvert. I like to be in the background and incognito. As such, I am rarely willing to post photos of myself. It’s something I am not comfortable with, and I now understand why my mother always wanted to be on the back end of the camera and never the front end. Having said that, here I am, in all my casual glory, and not just me, but my wonderful wife, Missy, too.
Missy is my greatest encourager. My greatest cheerleader. My greatest motivator. She’s always by my side and is the perfect road trip companion. In short, she’s my buddy!
This shot was taken this past October on our 2016 Fall Color Tour of Michigan. We are at the east end of Miner’s Beach in Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore near Munising, Michigan. I came back to this site after having visited it in 2008. It has changed dramatically. The beach that was there was pretty much gone this time, and the small waterfall in the background was now inaccessible.
This ties into a photo lesson I learned long ago: Never pass up an opportunity thinking conditions will always be the same. Too often, it is not. Take your shot now. I have some shots of this waterfall from 2008 that I will post soon.
