The beauty of the north's forests, lakes and streams are great opportunities for photographers. There's nothing like a winter day after a morning frost, when everything is sparkling white! Summer sunsets and blue lakes and skies can be breathtaking in the viewfinder. And an autumn ride through our hardwoods are rich in yellows, oranges and reds, contrasting with the dark green pines. Springtime is for young wildlife: spotted young fawns, nesting birds and all sorts of small critters.
Michigan's elk herd is generally centered in a square bounded by I-75 on the west, M-68 on the north, M-33 on the east and M-32 on the south. Exploring at dawn or before dusk, checking the wildlife openings, rye fields, in the back country will give you a chance to photograph these huge majestic animals. If you feel lost on the maze of back roads, just remember those four highways, and you will come back to civilization on one of them!
