The Fingers of God

"The Fingers of God"
Have you ever heard it called that before... when there are rays of light that stream down through small windows in the clouds? It definitely is a God thing! So beautiful and unusual! And what this small picture can't show is that where the light hit the water way out there, there are wisps of steam rising that are illuminated in a spectacular way. I tried to zoom in on that but lost the light rays then.
This was taken at Ludington State Park overlooking Lake Michigan on February 1, 2013, about mid-afternoon. Temperature was 12* F.

Winter Wonderland

The Crystal River
which runs through the Homestead property and empties into Lake Michigan
(just a few steps away from our condo)
 Note: the center of the picture looks a little blurry...that is steam rising from the river and snow falling!

Barely visible because of the snow-covered giant pines
is the building we stayed in at the Homestead

Visit to the Leelanau Peninsula

Stayed at the Homestead near Glen Arbor, MI for a few days this week. Lots of snow! Absolutely beautiful scenery everywhere I looked! Even up close!

The fluffy snow stuck to every surface and just kept piling up!
