Tall Trail

I liked the big tree on the right, but mainly I liked the lines here… the first thing that had caught my eye was the squiggly snow covered tree on the ground on the lower left, but also that combined with the straight lines from the shadows. You can’t quite tell that Lake Erie is […]

Pining For The Sky

It’s been a challenge finding new outdoors to be in while living in Toledo… especially outdoors that lends itself to landscape photography. But, that’s always the best challenge for photography in any case… finding pictures where you don’t think there are any. One of the parks I’ve wandered through is Oak Openings, which is a […]

Breaking Ground

For a few winters I’ve made the drive over to the Lake Erie shoreline at Magee Marsh just East of Toledo… it’s no Lake Superior shoreline, but every now and then the ice still does something interesting.

We Three Geese

I love being outdoors with my camera on days where there’s clouds like this scattered around the sky, it’s always fun to happen upon a composition you really like without having to edit clouds into the image.

Purple Carpet

Spring is a bad time of year for crawling on your belly to get shots… unless you really like ticks. I don’t think I got any today, though I was sure the whole time I was taking this I would bring home a new friend. Never let it be said that nature and landscape photographers […]

Wet Woods

My first trip to a park with my camera during the Corona virus quarantine… didn’t end up being relaxing because everyone and their brother was there, and nobody was trying to stay distant from each other. Made me cranky. However, I was able to climb into the woods off the side of the road to […]

Erie Winter

Another version of a similar shot I posted recently… the same corner at Magee Marsh, but after about 15 minutes, the strong wind had completely changed the cloud structure and much more blue was visible. It felt very backward, given that there is no blue in the water. This is also pulled back a bit […]
