The 2015 'Parks Series'. January: Silver Lake State Park.

Every month in 2015 I will be traveling to a different State Park. The first park on the list is one of my favorites, Silver Lake State Park in Mears, MI.

I find it to be one of the most unique and surreal places on Michigan's west coast. When traversing the more than 2,000 acres of sand dunes you feel almost as though you're on a completely different planet.

The large sand dunes of Silver Lake State Park make for fantastic and unique subjects to photograph. I've always loved the way sand looks in black and white. The detail seems to pop when properly processed to monochrome.

Tree and dunes silhouette while remaining light colors the sky and illuminates a frozen Silver Lake. The diversity of this park is one of many aspects that I love about going there.

The Little Sable Point Lighthouse sits right on the Lake Michigan shore just south of Silver Lake Sand Dunes. It's brick structure gives it a more "organic" feel than other lighthouses and I feel compliments the surrounding natural beauty very nicely.
