Flash Point: Justin Calkins’ toughest, favorite Great Lakes shots

Print More

We asked Great Lakes photographers to send us their favorite and toughest Great Lakes shot. Justin Calkins – related to our very own Gary Wilson – of Justin Calkins Photography sent us these photos.

Wind Storms

This photo was shot during the week-long wind storms of October 2010 in Grand Haven, Mich.  The gusts were as high as 70 mph, with very large violent waves.

Lake Michigan Severe Storm

I took this photo in 2006 and even though it’s older I still wanted to share it. In my opinion it captures an excellent look at a severe storm system over Lake Michigan at Pere Marquette Park, Muskegon, Mich.


This photo was shot October 2006 from the shores of Claybanks township in Montague, Mich.  This photo represents how calm Lake Michigan can be, just like the silhouette of my mom and dad.
