The Bluffs at Warnimont

The bluffs along the shoreline at Warnimont Park are not, perhaps, beautiful in the usual way. There is active erosion so they are unkempt, a jumble of sand and stone and shrubs that have found a foothold. Old, downed trees are scattered along the beach. Here are my images of the bluffs from above and below, from mid afternoon to dusk.

Trees along the shoreline

Here are my photos of the trees and woods along the bluffs at Warnimont Park, high above the shoreline. The woods are messy and look untended; even so, there is a clear path along the bluff's edge down to the beach. The bright afternoon sunlight provided some nice contrasts of light and shadow.

Beach beauties

We found many treasures on Warnimont beach: stones, remnants of red and cream bricks and concrete, bits of glass polished smooth, some dice, and even (I'm told) a lump of old coal. Someone left a rock sculpture for us to enjoy. The bluffs have been eroding, depositing all manner of things on the beach below.

The last leaves at Warnimont

We visited Warnimont Park last Saturday, taking advantage of the Indian Summer weather. Among the objects that struck my eye in the glorious afternoon light were the decaying leaves in the woods and along the beach (below). Other subjects of the day were the sand and clay bluffs, the stones and brick/concrete remnants on the lakeshore, the waves, and the views across the great Lake Michigan.
