Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore: Sleeping Bear Point Sunset II

Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore near Empire, Michigan is a great four-season park and one of my favorite Midwest locations.

One of my favorite spots in the park is the trail to Sleeping Bear Point. It’s an excellent spot at sunrise and sunset in the summer months.

This was the subject of my last post. Here are more images.

Feature Image Details

I used a Canon 24-105MM F4 L Lens

The focal length was 40mm for 1/13 of a second at F16, ISO 640. I used a faster ISO to help freeze the breeze we had. Here are a couple more images from nearby.

The light was very clear on the day I took those images.

Often there are footprints and sometimes people trample over the grasses. I was fortunate that the grasses were intact and the wind blew away any footprints.

  1. Again close to perfect as you can get ! Beautiful some of my favs! Thank You Mike for sharing

    1. Thanks Ted
      Need to pick a new topic now. Not sure what it will be. I have lost of places I have not posted on yet with images in hand.

  2. Dear Mike –

    GORGEOUS photos. I wish my husband were alive to see them. He, too, was a photographer, altho’ he never made a living at it. In the late ‘50s or early 60s, after graduating from the Ray Vogue School of Photography, he had an opportunity to work under the great Vic Skrebnesky, but he turned up his nose at starting at the “bottom.” ‘Talk about missed opportunities.

    Thanks for sharing the beauty you capture with your cameras.
