Miners Falls

Here is a B&W vertical of Miner's Falls in the UP of Michigan. This was taken 4 years ago from an observation deck overlooking the falls. Did you know that the UP of Michigan has over 200 waterfalls?

sturgeon river vertical

This is a vertical black and white of the Sturgeon River just below Canyon Falls. This is a beautiful gorge that always draws me back. This image is great as a black and white because of the great tonality. Ironically, I first photographed this area on July 3, 2004. The fourth of July was a rainy, foggy day which made for a unique image too.

Black and White Waterfalls

I am pretty sure that the image on the left is Alger Falls though it could be Wagner Falls. The confusion is because I think that my GPS which has the locations of the Michigan Waterfalls has them reversed. Taken in the Spring in 2008 as the spring snowmelt was providing lots of water.

Summer Fields and Sky 2

I sometimes will go back to a location - if I can. The light may be different, and in this case the the clouds were slightly different and the wind was a little less. Part of me did not like the softness in the crops in the bottom of the previously posted image that I took several weeks ago. Fortunately, the crops have not been harvested yet. :)

So, I had to try again.

Fields and Sky

This is not my usual style - well to a point. I usually like images that have a linear feature that leads from foreground to background. This does not have that. This is a very horizontal image. Also, I do not take many photos during the middle of the day. Well, I like these cottonball clouds and they are only found during the times when the sun is warming the ground and the evening breezes have not kicked in. Comments appreciated.

Blue Angels

Have been spending last two days at the National Cherry Festival featuring the Navy's Blue Angels. These were taken on the 4th and 5th of July. Wow, what a show! To say that these planes are fast is an understatement. I admire those who fly them. Not a dull moment at the office, I am sure. For anyone interested in prints, these are just a few of the images- these on the Internet are low resolution so they will not print well. I will be processing and adding to the rest of my Michigan Gallery and you may use Paypal to purchase prints.
