Solar Fire

The Muskegon Astronomical Society observatory on White Road is shown at dusk with the sky seemingly on fire. The afterglow of the sunset resulted in the rich coloring of the Muskegon, Michigan sky.

Wall of Water

Copyright Jeffrey Foltice

What might appear at first glance to be a painter putting the finishing touches on a mural of a giant wall of water, was in fact a photographer with tripod adjusting his camera toward the waves of Lake Michigan, catching the last bit of twilight on the water after the sun had set. I preferred the look of black and white to emphasize the contrast of the deep shadows for this photo which I took tonight at Tunnel Park in Holland, Michigan.

Gathering of Cranes

This is a short video I took from a recent early morning visit to Indiana’s Jasper Pulaski Fish and Wildlife Area. Deer walk in the same field that thousands of Sandhill Cranes gather in before their southward migration.
