Splashed Onto the Scene

Splash, Lake Michigan, Lighthouse, Sunrise, KewauneeEven a gentle wave can make a big splash if it encounters a solid obstacle on the shore. Some wood that drifted ashore on the beach in Kewaunee, WI, provided a splash point for the waters of Lake Michigan.  Not exactly sure, but It looked like the roof of small small shed.

The Kewaunee lighthouse, seen in the background, was surrounded by scaffolding during its renovation in the summer of 2017.  This was a June capture.

Daffodil Doppelgänger

Daffodil, Daffodils, Flowers, Spring, Yellow, Drops

Doppelgänger
noun. 1.  a ghostly duplicate of a living person. from German Doppelgänger, literally: double-goer.

These  daffodils, growing together, seemed to be mirror images of each other’s springtime beauty.

I found these daffodils growing among a group of blooms in a park not far from our home on a morning in the spring of 2017.

Sleeper Hold

Infant, Baby, Monochrome, Sleeping, Holding

There is nothing as peaceful as a sleeping baby. This little one seems comforted by holding the thumb of the one holding her.

I like this image because of the peaceful warmth it instills in me. I also love the contrast in size and age between the two hands. A great study in texture and tone.

This is an image featuring my wife and a newborn niece. A very sweet baby who was very cooperative…as sleeping babies tend to be.

Winter Coat

Snow, Plant, Fluffy, Winter, Cold
A fresh coat of fluffy snow blanketed these dormant plants…and everything else in the woods after a recent storm.

Without the coating of snow, these plants wouldn’t earn my attention. Sometimes bringing two ordinary elements together creates something extraordinary. Keep your eyes open and your camera ready.

Winter Warm Spot

Winter, Snow, Sunrise, Sunburst, Trees, Woods

In a very cold world, the sun offers a ray of hope. This comforting spot was found the morning after a recent storm that coated everything with beautiful, fluffy snow.

I captured this image just after sunrise at a spot near our rural home in NE Wisconsin. Of course, I had to get off the beaten path and tromp through the snow to grab this view.

My favorite feature of this image is the sunlight (and subsequent shadows) on the ground.

One-Eyed Snowy Owl

Snowy Owl, Owl, White, Bird

I spotted this snowy owl perched at the top of a power pole in rural Northeast Wisconsin. It seems to have only one working eye. These owls, along with their beautiful white plumage, have distinctively orange eyes. It also looks like it’s missing a beak, but it’s just hidden by the fine plumage around it’s beak.

I was on my way home in the afternoon when I passed by the owl a quarter mile from my home.  I pulled into my garage, grabbed my camera from the house and headed back; hoping it wouldn’t fly away before I got back to take photos. Thankfully, it was still there when I returned and was willing to sit while I snapped a few images.  Most of the time it seemed uninterested in me and rarely looked my way. It stayed in place long after I was done and back home.

I took this image at some distance but I really don’t have the kind of lenses that could capture a clear, sharp photo at this distance on a dreary winter day. When shooting, I was far enough away I didn’t notice the problem with its left eye.  I thought I noticed the left eye was not open as wide, but didn’t realize the real problem until I could view it enlarged on my computer screen. This isn’t a bad image for the screen, but it wouldn’t make a great large print.

Breaking Views

Sunrise, Waves, Pier, Lake Michigan, Algoma, WI
As the sun was rising over Lake Michigan, the waves were rising over the harbor pier at Algoma, WI.

I got up early and zipped to Algoma in hopes of catching a nice sunrise.  The beautiful sunrise landscape image I was hoping for never materialized.  However, it was a windy morning with waves crashing over the pier, so I focused on capturing some of the morning wave action.

In the low light conditions, it was difficult to capture the action of the crashing waves in focus.  This is one of those shoots where I wish I could spend more time experimenting on the technical aspects.

Kewaunee Consummation


Sunrise, Kewaunee, Lighthouse, Lake Michigan, PanoramaLines, angles, clouds, color and light converge on the Kewaunee lighthouse and pier to create a panoramic morning view.

This is the compilation of three separate images, stitched together to create a wider view than would be possible with a single frame.

Just looking at the photo, you get the impression that it was a warm morning. That was not the case. It was a very cool, fall morning; near freezing.

Considering the Next Move

,
Child Portrait, Monochrome, B&W, CandidWith the look on her face I can’t help but wonder, what was she thinking at the moment this photo was snapped.

This image was taken during an afternoon with family in Ohio. Our granddaughter was away from the group, exploring the surroundings at a park.  As you can see, I was keeping my eye (and focus) on her and snapping photos.

Dawn Patrol

Lighthouse, Sunrise, Geese, Sea Gulls, Kewaunee,
On any given morning, you can find Canada geese and sea gulls patrolling the area around the Kewaunee, WI lighthouse. They seem like a vigilant group; quick to sound an alarm when intruders are detected.

This was the scene yesterday morning from the beach just north of Selner Park, on the shore of Lake Michigan. I was able to get out early and snapped a number of nice shots. I’ll try to post more from this morning in the near future.
