Posing for Supper

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 […]

Ice & Sky

I posted a similar shot a few weeks back, but I liked this one too and couldn’t choose between them. This one doesn’t have the extra piles of ice in the background, but allows more focus on the roots and bark texture. Similar elements, but a different focus. (And by focus I mean attention, not […]

Winter Arms

I’d gone to the park when I saw it was snowing out… I wanted to try out my new camera hood I’d gotten a few months earlier. (Typically for shooting at waterfalls, to protect from spray, but works for snow pretty good as well.) However, it had almost stopped snowing by the time I got […]

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. This particular day that I was there, things looked somewhat bleak overall, not a lot to draw the […]

Growing for a Swim

This is one of my favorite trees at Kensington Metropark in Michigan… it’s almost completely fallen sideways into the lake, but is still hanging on to life. It’s rooted right on the shoreline, so the angle provides an interesting perspective that feels a bit off (and any time something is different it can make for […]

Thick Reach

Sometimes you have to bark up the wrong tree over and over on the off chance you’ll eventually get the right tree… actually, I feel like many trees have personality. Getting up close to them is where it’s easier to see that. This one felt tolerant but tired.  Download: Thick_Reach-Asgard_Photography_IMG_4704.jpg Camera Settings F-stop: f/18 Exposure: […]
