Cooler temps and earlier sunrises mark the seasonal transition to fall on the Door peninsula. We do summer on the gorgeous shores of Lake Michigan, but for many fall is the season that speaks to them.
Brilliant colors. Crisp, cool air. Leaves descending from the trees. The fall transition makes the arrival of cold winter winds a bit more bearable.
To celebrate these beloved seasonal transitions, here are 4 artistic expressions of Door County in the fall by Door County artists past and present:
I reveled in sunrises, sunsets, the eerie but welcome approach of fog…the fields so freshly washed after a thunderstorm, the serene secrecy of snow falling all night while one slept deeply through it, then awoke the next morning to the wondrous transformation of the landscape, a work of art in progress only partially recognizable, finding myself whispering through the windowpane lest I disturb the white world outside, speaking openly of it.
