Sunrise over Lake Michigan

It took me over a year of living half a block from the lake to get up for a sunrise. I’m not a morning person…at all. It still seems like a sad excuse giving our close proximity to what is essentially a private stretch of beach. Like many parts of the country, we’ve experienced above normal temperatures during the end of February here in southeast WI, which made a not-too-early sunrise (~6:45 a.m.) a little more appealing. Getting up for the sunrise isn’t going to become a habit anytime soon, but it is a great way to start the day.

  1. I absolutely love the shots with the colors along the wet sand and rocks! So beautiful. During much of the year, I have to get up around 4 am if I want to get a bite to eat and then make it to a good sunrise spot on time. Needless to say, I don’t do it all that often!

  2. These photos are seriously GORGEOUS. You’re lucky to live so close by – but I know what you mean. I have a river in my backyard and hardly ever get to appreciate it because my day-to-day life is so busy!

  3. I love getting up really early, but I get when other’s aren’t “morning people”. Lucky you did, though, as these photos are gorgeous! It must be great living at the beach 🙂

  4. I certainly relate to not being a morning person! And, I lived across the Indiana line from Chicago and never made it downtown until I was 17!
    Your sunrise shots are really awesome. I’m so proud of you for getting up. Don’t worry, we won’t expect sunrise shots again any time soon!
