Lake Michigan, last Saturday in October

I drove up Lake Drive to meet friends for lunch at the City Market in Whitefish Bay on this beautiful, sunny day. All along the route trees were at their absolute peak of color, just an overwhelming display of gloriously lush splashes of red, yellow, orange, purple, and brown.

I took this picture on the way home, while stopped at the traffic light where Capitol Drive hits Atwater park in Shorewood. I loved the deep blue of the lake and that distant hazy area where the air and water temperatures blurred together in a horizon-obscuring fog. Add in the strip of yellow leaves along the curb, the red bushes dotting a row along the bluff top, the lone, leafless tree at left, and that small cluster of teenagers taking it all in—well, I had to hurry up and roll down my window to take a quick photo with my phone before the light changed!😀

    I love how the bare tree contrasts with the different shades of blue color in the sky. The whole picture seems so well-balanced.
