Caption: After fishing until dark on Gratiot Lake in the Keweenaw Peninsula of Upper Michigan last night I decided to snap some pictures of the sky. It was a clear crisp night and the number of stars visible seemed infinite.

Very nice picture! What really tops it off is the cry of loons and an aurora. I was on a lake here in Maine under just such conditions once and I couldn't imagine it gets much better than that, unless maybe the lone howl of a wolf thrown in on top.

About yooper90

yooper90

I live in the town of Escanaba, which is located in beautiful Yooperland, better known as the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Summers here are short and cool, and the winters are not extremely cold but they sure are snowy in some areas! I love all aspects of life in the northwoods. I am not an avid photographer. In fact, I do all of my shooting with a slightly modified point and shoot Canon camera. Still, when the opportunity for a good shot presents itself, I try my best to take advantage. My favorite natural occurrence to photograph is the aurora.
