My Michigan

sldMichigan-8×10, originally uploaded by colleen sullivan leh.

I took this picture at the Lumberman’s Monument outside of Oscoda. It’s up north, so “outside of” means about 20 miles away.

The stairs from the visitor center down to the river are a real workout. There is the river of course, plus a small waterfall on the way down (for me, the bathrooms in the visitor center are a must-visit before heading down. And a bottle of water). There isn’t anything except stairs, a few seats, and the small barge on the river.

For this image, I added textures and made adjustments to replicate a vintage postcard look. Originally, I’d done this for a dribbble rebound of where we live, but made it larger because someone who had seen it on dribbble wanted a print. So cool!
