I visited Grand Haven State Park this afternoon in gale force winds to see the big waves. A Marine Storm Warning and High Wind Warning issued by the Nat'l Weather Service indicated the severity of the winds. I was surprised at the number of brave souls out there with their cameras shooting pics. I didn't have the tripod along, so did my best to hold it still in the wind. It was quite a sight.

Here is another shot. It was a dark, dreary day so it was hard to find the right settings. Shot these at iso 200 so they are a little noisy. I needed a higher iso, F6.0 and about 1/125 sec to stop the waves and get a decent exposure. Oh to be able to shoot at 800 iso with a shorter exposure and less noise... Taken with FZ20, polarizer, and one stop grad neutral density filter. Probably would have turned out ok without the filters, but had them along.

Nice shot with the wave breaking on the end of the pier.Excellent composition! Definitely gives the feeling of the force of the wind and waves. Good work!

The first with the lighhouse and extended pieris the better of the two.

i agree, first one is best. something about that spindly-looking little pier and those massive waves really brings home the force of Great Lakes storms

Here is a link to a photo taken by someone else showing people on the pier during fair weather. This will show just how large the pier and guide walk are compared to the waves. Thanks for the comments on the pics.
