So if you had Friday 09/04 off from work, what/where would you go shoot around S.E Michigan? Especially around sunrise.

I'd say you should find a nice remote lake. Get on the west shore and wait for the sun to come up. With the low temperatures we've been having in the evenings you should have a nice layer of fog to get some shots of...

I'd love to go, but currently money is tight. I live about 1.5 hours from Sleeping Bear, we usually make a trip once a year with the family. Just waiting for the fall colors, usually the 2nd or 3rd week in October, but it may be early this year.

There is a paved scenic trail that takes you to many places though the dunes. (drive a vehicle or ride a bicycle (you can smoke mountian bike brakes)).

There are other trails that also lead to the beach South of the hill climb, there is a popular small inland pond fed by Lake Michigan, shallow water keeps it warm.

I believe its the doplar radar sphere is located there too.

When we do head up, I'll have my KAP gear (kite) and hopefully a plane ready too.

Troy

I got some semi decent shots, but left at around 12:00 when I saw that there wasn't going to be much going on for a few hours. It took almost an hour to get out of the parking lot.

We were directed to go left when we got out of Selfridge, and that took us all the way around the blasted property.

I got to the lot just a few minutes after the end & it took only 15 minutes to get out. I also made the mistake of being in the right lane which took me all the way to the N end of the base. We'll know better next time.

Just to test the waters without sending out PMs to everyone, who would for sure go to Waterford Hills for sports car club racing on October 4th?
I don't see any point in arranging a shoot with the club for 2-3 people.

Even though it's a month off and it's really not an "event" so to speak. Railroads Illustrated magazine has picked October 3rd as this year's "Day in North America". They want submissons of what is happening on that day on north american railroads. They will be dedicating a future issue to this, so get out and shoot; you just might get published.

If I'm not working Jonathan and I would be in. But I don't know this far ahead yet.

I'll have to look into this Mike. It sounds like it could be fun!

Any POTN members from Upper Michigan or Pictured Rocks area? I'm going to be in this area (Munising also) in early October. Was hoping someone would give me some tips on photo opportunities in this area.

Too bad you didn't stop. Joan Jett ROCKED! Did anyone else get shots of the concert? I posted these:
Joan Jett & the Blackhearts "Arts, Beats, & Eats" Festival in Pontiac

Not my best concert stuff, but there were a few things beyond my control. (Yeah, excuses don't make good images!") :D

Frank, those shots aren't that bad. I like them. In the first shot the drummer looks like Don Johnson (Miami Vice).

Thanks, Jon. Considering the conditions, I like them, too, but they're on the ragged edge for sharpness.

Put on a little weight, hasn't he? :D
