For those of you that don't know, we live in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan (we residents are known as YOOPERS..get it? from the U.P.).
Before we got 100 miles from home, we were driving down the highway and saw a HUGE bird up in a tree.
God, I love that man.
And we did.
So I could get THIS picture!:
My husband waited in the nice, heated car while I braved wind and cold
to get more photos of him:
About two hours later, we were in the south part of the U.P. and cruising along US 2, which parallels beautiful Lake Michigan:As you can see, when we left on our trip, the U.P. did not have any snow yet.
Here is another shot of Lake Michigan:
I wanted to get out and get a picture of when you first see the bridge from the highway, but my husband wanted to keep on rolling (since the eagle photo shoot put us behind schedule), so since I had to travel with him for the next two weeks, I figured I better let him have that one, so everybody in the car would continue to be happy. :=}
So, when we got to the bridge, I took this shot through the car window:
Continuing on the bridge:
Almost half way!:
I loved this dark exposure of being almost under the arch with the dark, cloudy skies:
And the rest of the day, we made it all the way through lower Michigan and stopped for the night about 20 miles from the Michigan/Ohio border.
Since we didn't see anything thrilling all the way through Ohio, I didn't take any photos there....
tomorrow I will show you some shots from Kentucky and Georgia....
and then after that I will post all the Florida photographs.
I am so happy that I have my computer back, safe and sound and that they found all of my old photographs. I have them stored safely on my external hard drive, so we should be good to go now.
think about submitting a photo to the photo contest by Jan. 31st...this month's theme is "Something Rusty"......
