South Haven Pier Abstract

South Haven Pier Abstract

Image ID: 12-1594c

The combination of ever-present moisture, constant pounding of waves and the natural oxidation of metal created an interesting abstract of the steel casings supporting the pier at South Haven.

Getting my feet wet . . . up to my knees (it was April and Lake Michigan was rather chilly) and stabilizing the tripod were worth the effort. The rust and various colors created by the natural processes seem to tell a story of man-made objects versus Mother Nature. And Mother Nature always wins!
