Stunning Sunsets for Memorial Day Weekend

It seems as though Mother Nature is quite the artist this weekend.......at least here in Northern Michigan! The sunsets since we got to the UpNorth studio have been well beyond beautiful.

I am not sure sometime if we treasure our sunsets so much here in Michigan due to the fact that our winters are so long and we are indoors so much but I do know that we love them! To watch Mother Nature use her paint brush and paint the sky in subtle shade of blues, grays, burnt umbers & sienna only to then as the sun actually sets move on to vibrant shades of reds, oranges & purples and then finally to soft shades of pinks, peaches & lavenders all for our pleasure.

Well it's no wonder we love to sit on the beach at sunset roasting marshmallows & hot dogs....


Amazing how most of these pictures that I took are all in one evening isn't it? I only hope that my pictures are able to do justice to the sunsets of the last 2 nights here at the UpNorth Studio

See what I mean about how the colors change so much! Beautiful.....


I love this picture from last night.....the little assistants were sound asleep, everything was quiet and the sky changed colors again so I ran down to take this final shot last night of the sky......no Northern Lights yet but we have a whole summer to look forward to watching the colorful sunsets and then see if we get blessed with a peek at the amazing Northern Lights....

Cheers to Mother Nature & the colors of the sky!

Have a Sparkling Weekend!
June
