"Spring in the Sleeping Bear Dunes"


Traverse City, US
          

Drove out to Leelanau County to hike and photograph the Sleeping Bear Dunes which is part of the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore along Lake Michigan. Very few people are here this time of year and it was perfect weather for a several mile hike thru the dunes.

This area is also one of my favorite areas. I would also suggest the next time you are there, take some time to photograph the D.H. Day Barn. The barn has been rehab by a local contractor, into a large white barn with a cedar shake roof, that just glows in the early morning light. The barn is located North of the SBDNP, on the road to Glen Arbor, about 3 - 4 miles north. The barn will be on the right hand side driving north. You can photograph the barn from the south and north side, with the early morning light rising above the tree hedge, on the east side of the barn. There is a public road on the south side and the east side that you can use to set up. On the north side there is a open field to the north of the fence that surrounds the total barn property. I have taken some images from this field, in the early morning. This is truly an iconic barn from the early 1800's. D. H. Day was an owner of some the dunes park land today. I have not shot in the late afternoon light but it should also produce some good images. Most people drive by this great barn at about 60mph and miss this wonderful barn. Have fun and keep shoooting.

Hey Jack

When I was still living here in Michigan I drove by the D H Day farm many times. Took the attached photo the day of the Dunes Climb. Didn't walk across the field to get a better angle but took the shot just for a record. The shots I posted of the dunes were more for the benefit of those who've never been there. Light was pretty flat and unimpressive but it's always a beautiful place to hike. Early morning or sunset obviously would provide much more dramatic shots for anyone interested in visiting here. Looks like it's free for now as well until they open the guard shack at the entrance to the parking lot.

The other shot here of the overlook from Stocking Drive I shot a couple years ago in October while I was home visiting between projects. I've sold several large format of this version to some businesses around the country.

cheers
Peter
