THERE IS SOME ARGUMENT as to whom to attribute the phrase, “one picture is worth a thousand words,” but there is little arguing the value of the photographic and illustrative artistry shared in every issue of Michigan BLUE. Adventure. Nostalgia. Discovery. Home. Sometimes words just don’t do.
Life on water has many luxuries. Our goal at BLUE has always been to express each one as best we can; to artfully enhance the distinctive Michigan lake lifestyle of our readers. Every issue of the magazine is designed to celebrate Michigan traditions and prize simple rituals that turn ordinary days and moments into something special.
To celebrate 10 years of publishing, the images and photographs shared on this and subsequent pages were selected from past issues, on the merits that they articulate what gives Michigan BLUE purpose. Please, reminisce with us.
Ice balls, anchor ice, ice caves, icescapes — winter on or near giant, freshwater lakes has a unique way of drawing us from the warmth of home.
Chris Craft, Gar Wood, Hacker Craft — they defined the finest in wooden boats and they were all built in Michigan.
This low dune home was just a scramble of steps to a panoramic expanse of surf and sandy, pebble-jeweled beach.
