Photo Tour: Michigan's Upper Peninsula! October 6-10

The mighty Mackinac Bridge, the gateway to Michigan's Upper Peninsula. The UP is a paradise for photographers at any season, but at the peak of fall color it truly is a magical place.

Debbie DiCarlo and I are leading a photo tour here from October 6 thru 10, and the details are RIGHT HERE. We have a few spaces available, and if you like shooting awesome landscapes, waterfalls, and amazing fall foliage, you'll love it. The UP is sparsely populated, and not heavily visited by tourists in fall - other than perhaps the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. Even there, traffic is light, especially in the lesser known sites that we'll visit.

Following are some images from last year's trip, at the same time of year. They offer a small taste of fall in the Upper Peninsula.

A spectacular tree tunnel in the Hiawatha National Forest. Colorful landscapes abound in this region.

A flaming maple punctuates a red pine forest.

 Maple leaves accent an old white birch log nestled in haircap moss.

 An autumnal white birch forest near the shore of Lake Superior is a riot of color.

 The coffee-colored waters of Tahquamenon Falls. We'll visit many waterfalls of various size and structure, but all showy and trimmed with beautiful autumnal foliage.

An onrush of Lake Superior water washes over colorful polished rocks on the shore of Au Train Bay. Many beaches in this area are carpeted with such stones.

Sunrise over Lake Superior, as seen at dawn from atop Sugarloaf Mountain near Marquette, features an interesting "sun pillar". Finding scenic vistas for sunrise and sunset images is quite easy in the UP.

We'd love to have you join us. Again, GO HERE for details.
