High Banks in Winter

In a few months this is what our landscape will look like.

Another Chickadee Photo

Well, today I had chickadees whizzing around my head. The hard part was not flinching. A couple of the images are keepers, and here is one. The ISO was bumped up to about 1,000 and I used a flash to add a little sparkle to the eyes - well at least the eye that is visible.

Foggy Dream

This was taken on the last day of July. Unusually foggy morning as the fog lasted until well after 11:00 a.m. Lots of dust on my sensor though and it too some cleaning up. This maple tree will be the subject of many more images.

Schooner Festival

I had the pleasure of photographing at the Second Annual Traverse City Schooner Festival. Friday I got a few shots from the shoreline on West Bay. Saturday it rained most of the day and Sunday it was sunny and bright. Here are 2 that I got on Sunday. Wish this event would happen more often and that there were more schooners.

Two Images from the UP

I made a quick trip to the UP this week and came away with a couple of new images. The first is from the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. Amazing coloration in the rocks from mineral deposits. The second is of the Manistique Lighthouse and an amazing sunset.
