NORTHERN MICHIGAN FALL COLOR 2020 - DECEMBER 6, 2020
Let's face it, there are so many reasons to live here in Michigan, but none is more beautiful than when the fall comes around. Michigan is one of the states known for its fall color, especially in the Upper Peninsula. This year, one of my fall color goals was to visit the UP, but unfortunately, rain was predicted for the whole time we were to head up north. So, instead, we chose to visit the Harbor Springs area, where the color was at peak, and fortunately it was a great year to see the color (as you will see below!).
Yes, we did get some rain while on our trip, but the storms gave us some interesting skies to capture. This moment was captured overlooking Little Traverse Bay.
And this image was captured on the outskirts of Petoskey. We saw the storm clouds and pulled over and I launched my drone quickly to get the skies.
And, who doesn't love them some barns when driving around looking for beautiful fall color? These were some barns we came across during our road tripping.
Another side trip was to visit the 40 Mile Point Lighthouse outside of Rogers City, Michigan. I was happy that my drone was able to capture the remnants of the Joseph S. Fay shipwreck on the shore of Lake Huron.
These are some general fall color shots taken.
At the end of our trip, we stopped at the Manistee River High Bank Rollaway overlook, one of the most splendid views in the lower peninsula. It is a horseshoe bend in the river, and the drone really does it justice.
A closeup of the horseshoe bend!
