Eagle Point, Peninsula State Park, Door County, Wisconsin

I’m not so much after the typical “postcard view” in my landscape photography, but when the warm sunlight “kissed” the birches below the overlook at Eagle Point I knew I had a picture that captured the mood of this late afternoon. The view goes over the northern part of the Green Bay, which was the quiet side of the Door Peninsula that Friday after Thanksgiving. As you maybe remember from my previous posts, the waves of Lake Michigan crushed heavily into the rocky shore on the southeast side on that day. The clouds over Horseshoe Island are not strong enough to be the subject in this photo but make the image a lot more interesting than just a plain blue sky.
