Winter Sunset

Ice floes were drifting down the channel into Lake Michigan, a sure sign that spring was approaching. Lake Macatawa, the river mouth, was thawing – and fast. Broken ice filled the channel and hundreds of ducks were gathered among the bergs.

Also gathering was an audience of sunset lovers: teens and those in their middle and later years, fans who had come out on a cold evening to witness natural beauty. The Holland State Park pierhead, on Michigan’s southwestern shoreline, is a wonderful place to watch a sunset. They arrived with their phones, their point-and-shoots and other camera gear and stood gazing in quiet anticipation. The lake didn’t disappoint.
