Photographer's Note

I had to leave at about 4:45 in the morning, trek across a mile's worth of dunes, and I arrived at Lake Michigan just in time for sunrise. It was a relatively warm and humid morning for so far up north, and there was dew dripping off of a healthy Marram Grass specimen about thirty feet from the water's edge.

Marram grass is what holds the dune together. It is a frontiersman: the first to appear at the border of the lake, it stabilizes the sand so that other plant life can take root. There is a beauty to its strength and solitary existence.
