About the Image(s)

While late in the day, I took this photo of Pilot Island from a boat. The moving water of Lake Michigan caused the boat to move with the waves. This required a faster shutter speed and many photographs to catch the correct composition (and in focus). A few years ago the island was used for warnings for ships. The island and it's buildings are now closed. Cormorants and other species of birds have taken over, covering the island with guano.

Great capture. The house with windows boarded up, water and birds all create a feeling of being deserted. I may have cropped some of the sky off and a bit off the left side but otherwise well seen and well done.   Posted: 09/09/2021 17:54:09

Very nice image. the plain sky works well with this image. If you do crop in on the left closer to the bush, and some sky keep the aspect ratio.   Posted: 09/13/2021 18:54:37
