What I like most about this one is the branches (dead trees) in the water. It almost looks like there’s no ground, and you can see roots for the trees in the background. I get lost in looking at trees sometimes, especially when there’s patterns like this. Download: Swamp-Roots_Asgard_Photography_IMG_5987-scaled.jpg Camera Settings F-stop: f/16 Exposure: 1/200 […]
I almost didn’t end up using this one… I didn’t get either the clouds/sunset I wanted, or the reflection setup I’d hoped for, but what I like about it is the arc of the rock with a little bit of some people visible toward the end. The area to the lower left is just a […]
I’ve posted a few photos like this, and to be honest it’s not my favorite – either the bird or the shot. It feels too empty to me. But, the reflection thing catches my attention when I’m wandering by the water and see them, especially when the water is calm. I think maybe part of […]
While on a visit to my home town I made a stop at Deer Lake where I’d spent many hours of my childhood fishing and exploring. On this occasion I spent about 15 minutes there thanks to the mosquito convention that was apparently in town. What caught my eye here was the flowers, but the […]
This was taken on an evening when the weather wasn’t cooperating (anyone who goes out to photograph landscapes knows how frustrating the weather can be in that regard.) On this trip the sky had been annoyingly free of clouds during sunset time, except for this one night, when for whatever reason they’d roped off the […]
I’d actually been crawling through the woods after a shot of a crane that was hunting fish… but this guy seemed to think I was the instacart delivery he’d been waiting for. He followed me for a while, sitting fairly close, waiting for a handout. Unfortunately for him, I hadn’t brought seed with me that […]
I didn’t get the shot I was going for here, thanks to a lot of brush along the shoreline. I was trying to move slow as to not scare the bird away, but every time I got into a good spot, he’d move.
One of my favorites kinds of bird at one of my favorite parks. After moving out of the U.P., Kensington Metropark has been a lifesaver when I’ve absolutely needed to get my head into the outdoors that wasn’t in the middle of town. And it’s got the added benefit of wildlife that lets you get a bit closer, even if they are usually a little demanding for a handout.
For some reason, every photo I took of this scene came out looking like something you’d see hanging in an old motel, likely a painting by somebody you’d not heard of. Motel art. Still, I find it peaceful to look at, and I’ve always kind of had a fondness for the campy motel aesthetic. Scenes […]
