Wednesdays are sailboat races. I brought the wrong lens. We got there a bit later than I wanted to so I missed them going out the channel. :/ Well, there's always next week. ...
Stiff wind out of the north so they raced north of the pier - which meant I was shooting into the sun.
The black sails look like pirate ships...so the pirate ship is chasing the little boats.
The water is still high, though has gone down a lot.
At the turn, pirate ship sails past.
on the way back.
It's a red flag day - that means it's dangerous conditions. Not smart to be in the water. There is a BIG sign at the entrance that says 'red flag no swimming'. Yet there are dozens of people in the water. 53 people drowned in Lake Michigan in 2020, a record :( As of July 4 2021, there have been 15.
Shooting in the sun, gold water.
As a comparison, shooting the opposite direction was gorgeous. :)
