Weekly Photo Challenge: Pure

2015-06-03 16.10.12


My first attempt at the Weekly Photo Challenge with the theme pure.

I don’t know why, but as soon as I read the theme for this week I immediately thought of this photograph.  It was taken at Arch Rock, Mackinac Island which is on Lake Huron in Michigan.

The photograph is not edited at all, the water really is that lovely bluey/green colour and crystal clear at the shore.  If more of the sky was in the shot you would be able to see how spectacular it was on this day too.

My shot was taken in June 2015 but this is also a view I enjoyed many times during June to September in 2001.  Last year was my first visit back to Mackinac and the ferry ride over felt a little like going home.
