What a long day today. I was busy all day today and then these crazy storm clouds were all over the place. I HAD to go run around town and capture the coolness I started in North Muskegon, went through Muskegon to Fruitport, Fruitport to Coopersville and then to Grand Rapids. After taking a few pictures I started heading north towards Newaygo but turned back on to Apple Ave and went through Sparta, Bailey and Ravenna. I spent some time in Ravenna and drove through the Wastewater. I saw a really cool looking Bald Eagle sitting in a mud puddle in the two track, i went to grab my camera and forgot that it was attached to my tripod that was fully extended in the backseat. By the time I grabbed my camera, the bald eagle flew away After awhile, I came back into Muskegon and went towards the beach and then went downtown. That’s when i saw this huge cloud and I parked in front of the Holiday Inn and took some pictures. People were coming out of the buildings to check it out. It was a crazy scene, I love scenes like these. No picture can show their true coolness, kinda like my recent trip to Yellowstone. Out of the thousands of pictures that I took, not one of them “WOWS” me like seeing it in person. I want to go back.. i must go back. I’m rambling lol.. I do that a lot, that’s why i normally don’t like to type out long picture descriptions.
