Still going through my fall photos. I know it is sad but fall is when I’m out the most and I have a lot of photos to go through. when we were at Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore this fall the surf was really up. We drove out to Miners Beach to watch the surf. It was really windy with a dark overcast to the sky with a few patches of sun coming through the clouds. We decided to walk along the trail above the beach the take the trail up to Miners Castle. There was some great color and dramatic color along the way.

Typically when we drive over to Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore we have an early dinner then drive out to Miners Beach for some sunset photos. We continued this tradition again on this trip. When we arrived at Miners Beach we could hear the roar of the waves hitting the beach. There were also quite a few cars in the parking lot. This is a popular spot during the fall photography season.Miners-Beach-14-10-_2179

When we walked out to the beach we were surprised to find that there wasn’t much of a beach. All of the photographers were huddled into a small area above the beach. My wife counted thirteen photographers and a few other folks vying for space.Miners-Beach-14-10-_2165

Given all of the photographers around we decided to drive over to Castle Rock and check out the waves and evening light. Before going I took one last photo of what looked to be a nice sunset.Miners-Beach-14-10-_2216
