I am blessed to live in Traverse City, Michigan, which I consider to be one of the most beautiful areas in the world. Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore s just thirty minutes away. Traverse City itself is located on a large bay in Lake Michigan which is disected by two two stunning peninsulas. We also have many lighthouses nearby. One that I spend much time taking photos of is Point Betsie Lighthouse on Lake Michigan near the town of Frankfort.
