Waves on Lake Michigan

I have to admit that the better photos on this blog were not taken by me, but by my son on his iPhone camera.  We were driving along Lake Shore Drive on Monday and noticed that the waves were ridiculously wild.  We couldn't resist pulling into a parking lot (which cost us $8.00 -- a bargain in Chicago!) and taking some pics.  The above one he submitted to our local tv station and it was picked as one of the weather photos of the day and shown during the evening news.  He just happened to capture two waves as they smacked together and created quite a display.

And below, look at  the great composition in that shot:
You can see the icycles were sideways from the blowing frigid air:
Lastly is my picture of Jordan, the master photographer with his iPhone:
The wind chill was below zero and it took a very long time to warm up, but what a great adventure!


  1. Nice photos- looks sooo cold! Love your quilt pillows too! I'd love to get back to quilting! And just wanted to tell you that the background of my Ser. Prayer is paste paper!

  2. Wow Kate, your son caught some beautiful photos with his iphone. I don't blame you for stopping to catch these beauties. By the way, a very Merry Christmas to you and your family.
