Cave Point Sunrise by Nate-Zeman Cave Point Sunrise by Nate-Zeman
To purchase this image as an exclusive limited edition print, please click HERE

On a windy day, you will actually hear Cave Point before you see it. Constant battering from Lake Michigan's powerful waves has hollowed out large underwater caves. When conditions are right, one can observe waves crashing high into the air with incredible force. Standing on this limestone shelf, I could feel each wave crash deep into the rocks beneath my feet. These ancient shelves of limestone are actually part of the Niagara Escarpment, which runs westward from New York state to Ontario, Michigan, Wisconsin and Illinois. The most famous portion of this escarpment is the point where the Niagara River Plunges over Niagara Falls, for which it got its name.

Cave Point - Door County - Wisconsin

Wow. I was thinking this was someplace far off and exotic, and here it's someplace within a few hours drive...
What a great shot. Wonderful job of transforming a place I know well into something ethereal... :clap:

yeah, you know so many people from areas in the midwest complain that there is nothing to photogrpaph, but theres plenty. You just might have to work a little harder to see it.

Yeah. I tend to be guilty of that sometimes. :hmm: But I was talking with my parents at dinner after looking at this photo, and they said it's really gorgeous here the further north you go. Especially around the Door County area...

Isn't it? I've only been there once, but we just recently bought a trailer up there, so hopefully I'll be seeing it a bit more often. =)
