Green and Red and Blue

The greenish water to the red lighthouse to the blue sky made quite the rainbow of colors at the breakwater. It was very cold, and I was standing on a icy pier with water on each side of me, so I didn’t take long to get this shot and get back in the car!

Wintery Travel Plans

I’m already mentally scoping out photo spots for my trip to Wisconsin this Christmas. Until then, I’ll have to settle for editing this icy image from last year. The combination of the sunrise and the ice formations from the waves crashing at Cave Point almost made it feel like being on another planet.

Star Trails in Door County

I spent a long time out in the dark to get this photo, but the good news is I had great company to make the time fly by! This isn’t the first time I’ve done star trails, but it is the first time I managed to get the North Star in the shot to make the movement look circular. In the end the wet feet and worrying about my camera ending up in the lake when I heard a big wave crash were all worth it.

ICE COLD!!!

I didn’t get my favorite puffy clouds for this cold sunrise, I got something much better. These branches at the edge of the rocks at Cave Point had survived the spray from some heavy waves, and were now covered in ice. The rising sun lit them up just right to show this crazy translucent pattern. Thankfully I didn’t slide into the icy water while getting this shot!

Last Days of Summer

This might not be what you think of during the summer, but this was a common scene when I was a kid. Corn lined the country roads as far as you could see. Later this week is the last day of summer, which brought back memories of days that looked a lot like this.

Crazy Skies Over Clark Lake

Normally I’d worry that clouds like these meant a storm was coming. After a day of swimming and boating on the lake, I wasn’t concerned that this crazy sky would ruin the day as we’d already had our fun.

Christmas Sunrise

I spent Christmas morning with my Dad watching this awesome sunrise. It was the only day that was supposed to be partly cloudy, and there was a light dusting of snow. A perfect moment to take in a sunrise over Lake Michigan!

The Breakwater

Normally in December this view of the breakwater in Algoma, WI would be covered in ice and snow. On this particular day I liked the way the clouds almost look like they are clearing a path to the lighthouse.

Mooooo

I’m from Wisconsin, and I haven’t shown my home state any love recently so here goes. I stopped the car to take this, but no one else driving by realized what the big fuss was about. There will always be a place in my heart for Wisconsin cheese and the cows responsible for it, and I needed to pay Bessie a tribute with a spot on the blog.

Mooooo


Pink and Orange

This moth was so interested in the flower, he didn’t even notice me sticking my lens in his face.
