Summer sunrises are often impressive thanks to summer storms. The morning I shot this thunderstorms had just rolled through 😍
I’m contributing to an exciting photo tour guide app (details soon as launch date approaches), and this photo is adjacent in my archives to one that I’m sharing there. Don’t let the warm colors fool you: this June day turned cool quickly as a storm front rolled through. The light rain it left as it passed soaked up the setting rays and the entire sky glowed 😍
It doesn’t get much more Up North than a slide into the crystal clear waters of the Upper Manistee River 🚣♂️
Last year I took my nephew on a 14 mile hike in the @picturedrocksnps and this is where we had lunch (always Muldoon’s pasties). He’s coming up for another solo trip with me, and I’m thinking Mackinac Island. Any suggestions for me and my 15-year old kiddo??
Michiganders take swimming season very seriously. Perhaps too seriously. (Zoom in on the pink cloud to see what I mean 🌩🏊♀️😬)
The Milky Way rises over a fallen log in the still waters of North Bar Lake.
When the water is too ripply for reflections, but the texture is perfect making it feel like a reflection. Can I call it slant reflections like it’s a language arts term?
A vetching sunset over Boardman River backwaters. Get it? 🤓
I made it out to smell the lilacs at Point Betsie once this year, and decided to do something a little different. This image is the result of stitching together 28 frames shot on my 90mm macro at f/4.5. It was a lot of work, but I like the shallow depth of field over a large visual area 👌
Mercurial afterglow over South Manitou Island 🌅
Cedar Hedge Lake offering mirror like reflections, and missing sunset perfection only by a thousand mosquitoes. Ah well, close enough in my book.
The solstice flipped a switch and suddenly it’s summer. It’s hot, the midway is going on downtown, and airshow planes are practicing overhead. Since strawberries just hit the markets, it feels like Cherry Festival is early, but I don’t make the rules 🤷🏻♀️🍒🍓🏖🚁
Those summer nights ❤️
Selfie under the stars. ▪️ I’ve had several DMs and emails asking after a night sky workshop. I could set one or two up for August. I only accept three participants per outing. Message me if you’d be interested in Saturday evening class and field time. ▪️ Thanks for your patience while I relocated across the Boardman Lake recently. Most of my belongings have a home in my new home, and life is returning to normal.
Winding my way through the week. We sold our house yesterday and traded for a condo. It’s a short distance move into a place that is getting a full paint job and new floors. I might be more absent than usual, so thanks for understanding if I’m extra quiet!
I love moody skies, and extra love when they break like today allowing for sunny afternoons!
As above, so below. Another image from Thursday’s preternaturally calm sunset over Lake Michigan. This was after a set of riffles made their way shoreward; it had been even more still, but I liked seeing the sight surface disturbance.
Sun, sun, sun here we come! A moment of last night’s glorious last light from high atop the Sleeping Bear Dunes 😍
