A few years back in the winter months I stopped at Kensington Metropark in the Detroit area to experience a Pure Michigan winter sunset. Since then it has become my go to spot around the Motor City to capture a winter sun going down below the horizon.
As usual I drove into the park at the Kent Lake Road entrance and then down to the docks at the East Boat Launch. I was immediately reunited with Kent Lake in the Milford, Michigan park. Being bitterly cold, with snow and ice on the ground once again made for a beautiful winter sunset experience. I will let the photos do the rest of the talking.
Where else in the Detroit area and in Michigan would you recommend going to capture a winter sunset?
No matter the evening, viewing a sunset on St. Pete Beach along the Florida Gulf Coast is magical. The beach, sand, palm trees, Gulf of Mexico and other beach goers in combo make for a romantic and beautiful setting every time. A great spot for honeymoon! 🙂 I’ll let the pictures from various summer evenings do all the talking.
Where are your favorite spots, either around home or that you’ve come across in your travels, to capture a sunrise/sunset over and over and over again?
I haven’t come across a better place to catch a sunset then along the Pacific Ocean and Pacific Coast Highway (the PCH) in Southern California. This shot is just west of Malibu near Point Mugu State Park (yep driving along the coast in this part of California involves driving west). 🙂
A while back I took a day trip over to Ludington in Michigan to capture the sunset. I watched the sun go down into Lake Michigan from Ludington State Park. Brush, sand dunes and other photographers added to the beautiful scenery of the evening.
Captured a Punta Gorda sunset along the Peace River and Charlotte Harbor in Southwest Florida. Was hanging out at Laishley Park Municipal Marina on a summer evening. The Charlotte Harbor (Barron Collier) Bridge lies straight ahead.
