Making Sand

This is the last one I’m posting from my recent trip to the U.P. where I spent the first evening playing with long exposure shots. This one is actually a bit too over-exposed (so the waves are whiter than I’d like) but I still thought it turned out alright.  Download: Making_Sand-Asgard_Photography-IMG_1960.jpg Camera Settings F-stop: f/22 […]

In The Open

Sometimes I get on a tree kick. I like trees. I posted another one recently that was taken a couple of years back, this one was taken more recently. No cloud overlay, either, this is what was there that afternoon. This is on the roadside on the way in to the South end of Saline, […]

Birch Twins

I probably would have liked this shot better further into summer with some green… but then without that you can see more sky, too. In either case, I really wish this was the view from my back yard! This was across the highway from the Seacoast Resort on 28 near Au Train. Download: Birch_Twins-Asgard_Photography-IMG_2169.jpg Camera […]

Alvin

These little buggers are cute, but often difficult to get a shot of because they don’t sit still for long. At Kensington though, they’re used to people enough (and you can bribe them with seed) so you can get pretty close. This has probably been my favorite park to go to for shooting wildlife. (With […]

Single Tree

I drive by this spot in Saline just about every week on my way to check a PO Box for my business. It’s probably the most photographed object for me in that town at this point. lol This photo is a bit of an experiment in that when I took it (a few years ago) […]

Slow Spring

Not entirely sure why, but this is one of my favorite trees at the Kensington Metropark in Michigan. (It’s on the South end of the path around the main lake where the nesting island is.) I recently took a trip there to get my season pass. I think what I like about this image is […]

Stoic Pines

As much as I love Lake Superior, I can’t imagine trying to stand next to it season after season. These trees are tougher than they look. This was taken on a quick stop during my travel out of town after a weekend visit. The weather was getting pretty intense and I was trying to beat […]

Smooth Shores

There were several different framings of similar shots that I got on an evening after I’d checked into my motel. (Lake Superior was right on the other side of the road, so I of course had to take advantage of the lower evening light for some long exposure images.) I’d been playing with the settings, […]

Air Roots

I’m not sure which is worse in life… having problems spring up suddenly by surprise, or being able to see them coming from miles away. I imagine if trees could worry, these would be having all sorts of long lasting anxiety attacks. I’m often impressed at the hardiness and life along the shores of Lake […]
