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 […]

The Leaves Left

Sometimes with a photo I go back and forth on whether I like it or not. This one is one of those. Ultimately, I’m drawn back by the combination of the sharp lines in the branches and the smoothness of the reflection. I also like the opposing lightness of the branches and the darkness of […]

Green Shadows

I really like sunset shooting because of the contrast you can get with shadows. Though, on this one I spent way too much time fiddling with the coloring, especially the sky, to try to get it how I liked. Shooting in raw mode really helps with options when you’re back at your computer! Download: Green_Shadows-Asgard_Photography_IMG_0943.jpg […]

Rocky Roots

This was a difficult shot to get, and I’m still not 100% happy with it, because it was relatively dark and I didn’t really have the time to set up my tripod. (My son and I were hiking up Sugar Loaf and he reeeeeally wanted to get to the top.) There’s two trails up, this […]

River Road

When I popped onto Facebook last night, I saw someone had posted a photo in a photography group I’m in that they’d taken at Side Cut Metropark. It showed high water levels, much higher than I’ve seen in the years I’ve been here. I decided today to try to squeeze in some time (though only […]

Into Darkness

As awesome as trails through woods are, there’s just something about trails through darkened woods after sunset that make you think twice before going in. Most often when I’ve visited Wildwood Park it’s been overflowing with people (it’s a popular “nature” spot for Toledo and the surrounding area) but it helps if you go during […]

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 […]

Sugar Loaf Fall

Sugarloaf is always a great view (if you haven’t been to Marquette and manage to make it here, do yourself a favor and make the climb.) Most of the time, I’m shooting things closer up, and I don’t think I’ve ever taken a shot in the distance like this and been happy with the “feel” […]
