Lake Michigan Ferry Crossing with Lake Express
Lake Michigan is massive. It takes 2.5 hours on a fast ferry to cut across from Michigan to Wisconsin. It is over 100 miles in width. The English Channel at Dover Strait is only 20 miles wide. I'd always wanted to capture the lake while being on it. What could I see? How far could I see? In 2017 when I had the opportunity to cross it, on a car ferry, I was thrilled. As we began our journey it began to rain. Being on open water, even a lake, during a thuderstorm is not a great feeling. Thankfully, it started to subside and I braved drizzles to go to the deck and capture the thunderstorm clouds moving away and give way to sunshine. You can see rain from the clounds still and Milwaukee in the distance.
