This photo comes from Heather Walters of Palos Hills, IL.
I captured this amazing sunset in Grand Beach, Michigan. My friend and I decided to take a break from our hectic lives back in Chicago, so we packed up our children, left our husbands at home and headed for her mother’s little cottage in Michigan for a few days.
The kids played in the sand all day and every night we could hardly wait to see what beautiful sight the setting sun would bring us. The cool breeze, colorful sky and glistening water was just what we needed to bring calmness back into our lives. The time we spent along the shores of Lake Michigan those few days is something that I will never forget.
I would like to dedicate this photo to my friend Mary Grecek. She is fighting Stage 4 Colon/Liver cancer. She is an amazing person and a true fighter. I plan to watch many more Lake Michigan sunets with her and watch our children grow.
