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, […]

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 […]

Winding Water

One of these days I will get some waders. I always find shots like this that would have been so much better if I could have moved about a foot sideways into the flow.

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. […]

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 […]

Worf Tree

When I was a kid I was never thrilled when my parents dragged me along to a garden (or greenhouse or craft store)… but age has it’s revenge. Now I love going and of course drag my own youngest against his will. This tree (bush?) is at the Olbrich Botanical Garden in Madison, Wisconsin. I […]

Waiting For The Thaw

Being a tree along Lake Superior is not an easy thing. Especially in the winter. This poor birch tree was standing guard at Presque Isle’s “Sunset Point” in Marquette, Michigan. I’d gone out to Black Rocks to try to catch a frozen sunrise over Lake Superior, though the clouds thwarted my plans for that. While […]
