The Michigan.gov Web site is looking for photos of the state to display. I've got a few.
I zapped them this image, of the hay field south of Lake Isabella, and I'll probably send them another couple as time goes on. I think my stuff is at least as pretty as many of the photos, although the Houghton-Hancock bridge image is absolutely awesome!
If nothing else, it's a cheap way for the state to dress up its site. Ego is cheaper than dollars.
