The waves on Lake Michigan at Grand Haven’s State Park grew intensely yesterday afternoon. I took this photo at approximately 5 p.m. as the waves reached over the outer pier’s lighthouse at the State Park in Ottawa County, Michigan.

Serenity Reflected

A pair of ducks float serenely on the the still waters at Riley Trails Park in Ottawa County, Michigan. The combination of Autumn colors, with the mix of strong vertical lines shown by the reeds’ reflections, along with the strong horizontal lines caused by the shadow of the wake leading to the ducks, makes for a nice photographic composition.

I found this American Lady Butterfly checking out the flowers at the Historic VanRaalte Farm in Holland, Michigan today. With temperatures around 80 degrees, the butterflies in the area were pretty active.

The Fallasburg Park Covered Bridge shown today with it’s reflection in the Flat River north of Lowell, Michigan with the surrounding trees turning into bright Autumn colors. The 100 foot long covered bridge, which is still open to vehicles, was built in 1871 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Mushroom Abstract

I found a grouping of mushrooms on an Autumn day in Michigan. I decided to focus in closely on an interesting example of one from the perspective of its base looking up toward the sky, which had illuminated the subject from above creating a golden glow.
