Please join the Shutterbugs for a day trip to the Silver Lake Dunes(1st picture) and Little Sable Point Lighthouse(2nd picture). This is one of my favorite spots in the state for shooting landscapes. It gives access to sand/desert settings, water bodies and a light house all within a few square miles. The high sun provides some of the dramatic scenes to capture in a photograph. If you have a Graduated ND/Split ND/Reverse ND filters and didn't find a suitable place to use it or you were thinking about getting one, this would be a great time to do so.
We will leave Carpool parking on M-14, Miller Road Exit in Ann Arbor at 9 AM and reach Silver Lake Dunes by 2 PM, stopping around Grand Rapids area for lunch. We will do some dune hiking and shoot pictures around the area till 5:30 PM. After that we’ll have dinner in the area. I'll setup the carpooling options in such a way that after the dinner we can either return back to Ann Arbor reaching here by 11 PM or visit the Little Sable Lighthouse at 7:30 to capture the beautiful sunset over the lake Michigan and reach Ann Arbor by 1 AM.
