Sleeping Bear Dunes at the Golden Globes

Northern Michigan News: A day last May spent driving around Sleeping Bear Dunes country in search of misty landscapes helped land Ohio photographer Joy St. Claire’s 2012 calendar, Poetry of Fog, into swag bags at the 69th Golden Globe Awards, January 13–14, Beverly Hills. Stars receiving the calendar include Mayim Bialik (The Big Bang Theory), Samantha Harris (Dancing With the Stars) and Joe Mantegna (Criminal Minds). Poetry of Fog was one of 32 items selected by a jury for gift bags at the event. St. Claire acknowledges twin passions for fog (“It obscures so much”) and Sleeping Bear, where Lake Michigan swirls mists into the dunes and forest. Sleeping Bear images illustrate April, June and August. Order at
