Ghost of Summer

I’m not typically a fan of abstract photography, or artsy shots. But every now and then I find exceptions. It’s sometimes difficult during the fall to find interesting photos, because once the initial color changes are over, things are pretty drab in many places. This particular photo I liked because of the contrast between the […]

The Leaves Left

Sometimes with a photo I go back and forth on whether I like it or not. This one is one of those. Ultimately, I’m drawn back by the combination of the sharp lines in the branches and the smoothness of the reflection. I also like the opposing lightness of the branches and the darkness of […]

River Roots

The “smooth” waterfall shots always look better to me when you have something that has a hard edge contrasting within it. In this case, the roots do that a little bit at the top left. There are very few waterfalls near Toledo, so I try to visit frequently to catch different water levels and conditions. […]

Jesus In The Fall

Statues in cemeteries fascinate me. The place where my dad is buried doesn’t have a lot of them, but there’s this one very large one of Jesus not too far from his grave, and the white with the orange background stood out to me on my last visit. Only thing better would have been if […]

Sugar Loaf Fall

Sugarloaf is always a great view (if you haven’t been to Marquette and manage to make it here, do yourself a favor and make the climb.) Most of the time, I’m shooting things closer up, and I don’t think I’ve ever taken a shot in the distance like this and been happy with the “feel” […]

Falling Behind

In the time I spent living in Saline, I walked the trails at Curtiss Park quite a bit. I was always fascinated by the way leaves would pile up at points in the river from time to time, it never looked like there was a reason they’d stick there with the pressure from the water.  […]

Water Shelves

Berea Falls near Cleveland, Ohio is one of my favorite non-U.P. waterfall locations to shoot at. I love the arches (not shown in this shot) and have yet to explore the whole area. This photo was taken on a trip where I’d hoped to catch some fall colors, but the water level was much lower […]
