    Yesterday a storm rolled in with high winds and lots of rain. It died out before sunset, so I headed to the lake to check out the sunset over Lake Michigan. I was not disappointed. The wind was still whipping up, and the sun dipped below the clouds just before disappearing at the horizon. A wave popped up in front of the sun on this one... which actually helped the exposure. My legs got pretty well sandblasted while standing in the water, but I walked away with a lot of keepers. I hope you enjoy.

    Wow. Magical place! I love how it's so incredibly powerful, and yet strangely serene at the same time. Nice capture!

    Some people I think have the big guy upstairs on speed dial at times, I swear.
    I'll stand outside for 9 hours, and as soon as I give up, pack it in it in and get back in the car, falcons, elk, jumping salmon, flying saucers - all waving goodbye.

    Wow Pat that is positively brilliant. I really love how you return to this place throughout the year, and capture it in a unique way every time. This one really hits it out of the ballpark. Not that I want to unduly influence the judges .... this thread always collects excellent entries!

    Thanks guys. Nature did the work. It was more an endurance test for me... the sand was drifting pretty good - it looked like blowing snow on the beach. Everyone else were sitting in there cars taking pictures and watching the idiot standing down at the lake try to hold his equipment down.

    SHUT IT DOWN. Contest over with that insanely artistic work by Pat. It's hard to stop looking at that photograph. I've commented on Flickr that the wave on the right looks just like a japanese painting of a wave. Kudos!

    Erno - Waves were coming together in that spot from time to time, and when they did it would pop way up. I managed to catch it pop up a few times. Out of the 262 shots taken, there were a lot neat wave formations, but the ones with that wave popping up and the wind fanning it out really stood out. I am glad you noticed.
