Mid-Summer Lake Michigan Sunset

 I can't believe it is mid-summer and I haven't posted any Lake Michigan sunsets pictures yet. I really never tire of walking the beach at sunset, everyday it is a different view and almost always beautiful. These were all snapped in one evening…...




At the height of the summer the sun doesn't set until 10:00 PM. We are at the very western edge of the eastern time zone. It makes for lots of outdoor time.






Clouds help to make a glorious sunset.



Almost done for the day.


I always feel like I have to give a weather report when we are having unusual weather. We are still experiencing fall here, mid 60's and low 70's if we are lucky. This kind of weather makes for chilly swimming in the lake! Everyone is hoping that summer returns before fall arrives….

I grew up on an island of Lake Erie - with the lake in the backyard.

This just made me horribly horribly homesick.

Loved those lake sunsets, you are blessed to still be able to enjoy it where you are.

Thank you for the gift of sharing this beauty with us.

Sunsets over the water are spectacular! We haven't had our kayaks out much this year, but I hope to get out a bit over the next 2 weeks. I hope we can enjoy at least one sunset on a lake!

Gorgeous photos!

Gorgeous sunset and photos.I think we all are having unusual weather this year. Here in Georgia, we're just thankful to not have another year of triple digit temps. I'll take 80 degrees and lower humidity,anytime.
Have a great Sunday.

Gorgeous sunsets. We're having the same type of temperatures in Ontario and I'm hoping we're not into an early autumn already.

These sunsets are so pretty, Laura, and the clouds make them more beautiful.

It is hotter here in California, but enjoying the summer days, as they won't last for too long.

Love,

Love your sunset, your pictures are beautiful. Hopefully the weather will get back to the 80's today or tomorrow as I'm not ready for fall yet. Thanks for sharing your shore.

There's nothing that thrills me as much as watching a beautiful sunset. It's like God is just painting a lovely picture just for us...each one unique!

For several years we lived on the shores of Lake Ontario, and long ago I worked on the shores of Lake Superior. I've never seen Lake Michigan, but your photos are beautiful - I'd love to see that Great Lake!

Beautiful sight indeed Laura. Nothing quite like the stunning reds and yellows of the sunset! We are having extra hot temps here. Upper 90's. Although you can sure feel a touch of Fall in the mornings. Thanks for sharing these lovely shots with SYC.
