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 […]

Frozen Woods

I’ve tried a handful of times to visit Marquette’s Black Rocks (at Presque Isle) before sunrise, to catch the sun coming up over Lake Superior. I’ve only manage it once where there weren’t too many clouds to actually see some sun. As a result, I’ve played around a lot with long exposure images, since it […]

Presque Isle Sunset

I wasn’t really sure I liked the end result with this photo, but ironically when I printed it on canvas I found I liked it much better. On the computer screen, I think I feel critical because of the amount of editing and noise involved… but the texture of the canvas somehow smooths that out. […]

Sunset Float

This is the essence of peace and calm, to me. Lake Superior can be tough and dangerous, but also so calming and relaxing. Combine it with a sunset and it’s just good for the soul. This was taken next to Black Rocks on Sunset Point (Presque Isle) in Marquette, Michigan. I’m not sure who was […]

Tree Peeking

This photo stuck out to me while going through the day’s shots because of the framing. I really like the little tree visible through the wall of leaves from nearer trees. This was shot from across the small Saline river that flows through Curiss Park in Saline, Michigan. (When I used to live in Saline […]

Patriotic Monkey

Sometimes I end up with a photo that feels like a metaphor that I can’t pin down. I got a few of those a while back when a roadside fireworks store had put up several eye catching balloons. There have been dragons, dinosaurs, and this guy. I normally prefer landscape and wildlife, but these kinds […]

Frozen Rose

One one of my trips north, during the winter months, I’d stopped at Lake Superior on the edge of Marquette to look for a chance to take some ice photos. The weather wasn’t cooperating, however, and was very overcast and the light was very bad. That turned out to be perfect for a shot of […]
