Lake Huron Wind Socks

I tried to watch a little football tonight. Jeeeze, one more beer commercial and I was going to scream! So, at halftime I decided to change venues and I took a stab at this photo of a stormy afternoon on Lake Huron.

I took the original photo last July. Just 30 minutes earlier the sky was mostly clear and the wind was calm. Ah! You gotta love Michigan weather!

If you're wondering why there are poles with windsocks standing out in the water, these are used to tie off small boats and jet skies when they're not being used. Each pole flies a distinctive flag or windsock so you can find it when you return to shore.
