One of my personal goals this fall was to practice more with my new camera by taking more photographs. I really enjoy taking photographs and sharing them. I call the results of such field trips, Small House “Photo Essay’s.”

This week I was able to visit a very magical beach not far from my home. This beach shall remain nameless since it is located in a private gated community and I want to respect their privacy. I have been given permission to walk on this beach for which I am very grateful.
This giant boulder appears to be floating in the water.
The day I visited Lake Michigan was gray, drizzly and overcast which made for some very interesting photographs with a background that melted into the horizon and are barely there. This I like!
Like frosting on the cake this snow adds a lovely look to the magic rocks.
I don’t know why these unusual rocks ended up on this beach. I am “assuming” it was a fact of nature brought on by the glaciers who moved these rocks along. At no matter their origin, these large rocks are very rare in this part of the state and on our beach which I feel is very enchanted.
My favorite image of the photo session. I love the water worn watermarks on the rock to the right and the waves coming in.
Enjoy the visit!
