Oh, how the lake changes!

This image was taken last evening before 7 PM, while it was still showering a bit:

Lake, Boats and Red Canoe

I shot this image shortly after 2 PM, from approximately the same spot.  As you see, there are more waves (thanks to strong winds from the north) and the color is a bit muddier.

Here’s a closer look.  Even at the horizon, you can see the huge swells which make Michigan a very dangerous, unforgiving lake.  Rip current warnings were issued early this morning, yet there was no black flag flying, which indicates danger to swimmers.
