This photograph was taken from the pier at the Holland State Park, located in Holland, Michigan, facing north along the shoreline of Lake Michigan.
It’s often said that a person can never go home again. That is, everything changes with time. Even memories fade. In fact, some recollections can become embellished to such a degree that they seem more wonderful than reality might otherwise have one believe. In such instances, a visit to a place from the past can fall flat in the face of one’s romanticized vision. Yet, with a different sense of appreciation – and at just the right moment – magic can happen and memories may be bested.
That was my experience, here. This rough shoreline strewn with rocks and driftwood is located on the shores of Lake Superior, in Michigan’s upper peninsula, north of Marquette at Little Presque Isle. Growing up in the area during my childhood, I had the opportunity to visit this spot several times over the years, as well as on a few occasions during my travels as an adult.
It should be noted that the shores of Lake Superior are dynamic, constantly changing as a result of storms and the seasons. That said, and while I’d always considered this spot a place of beauty, I was astounded during a visit in later years (this photograph) that the shoreline was even more compelling than I remembered – something I couldn’t have imagined until that day!
A great day, indeed. If you’d be interested in owning a print of this Michigan landscape, then please visit my gallery at Fine Art America. A variety of print types are available – framed, canvas, art, wood, metal and acrylic. I’ve also added this image to my gallery at Zazzle, where other items may be found.
I hope that you will enjoy this rugged, ever-changing landscape of Michigan’s upper peninsula on Lake Superior. Thanks for stopping by!
