We often talk about the colors of spring as they pertain to gardens, fields and forests. A time of year when plants emerge, trees leaf, and flowers burst from the ground. All of this filling our world with every color imaginable. It wasn’t always apparent to me that Lake Michigan’s appearance would also change along with the seasons. But as winter was ushered out by spring, that first year I photographed the lake, it immediately became evident that the changes to the land would be mirrored on the lake’s surface.

Suddenly Lake Michigan began to show an entirely new set of qualities related to light and color, rich and brilliant, heavily saturated hues in bronzes, oranges, reds, blues and purples. There is an intensity to many of these days that stands in stark contrast to the muted and dark periods of winter. Each season has, as is now quite obvious, it’s own character and nature and spring has, without a doubt, often had the power to leave me breathless. Spring on Lake Michigan shows us a world coming alive again from the last winter days.
