Bucolic Scene

I ran across this very old barn in a country setting today.  I think many people share a special feeling about country scenes and the emotions they invoke. Who knows how many decades this old barn has remained standing as crops continue to grow near it every season.

Bridge Reflections and Patterns

I found this bridge and the surrounding reflections and patterns an interesting subject to photograph today. I found it in a local park in Holland, Michigan.

I’ve had several requests for prints from visitors  since I began posting my outdoor and nature photography. I have uploaded them to

where they can be ordered. If you have a favorite image I haven’t uploaded there, just let me know and I’ll be sure to add it to those you can order. Thanks for visiting!

Eastern Face of Mount Michigan

Appearances can be deceiving. There are no mountains nearby in Southwest Michigan. However, as I saw this huge pile of material this morning, with the Eastern portion lit in such interesting detail and contrast, I could almost feel as if I were looking at a mountain in the Southwestern U.S. In reality, I think the pile was some form of aggregate material reaching into the sky.

Old Barn

I found this old barn today in Ottawa County, Michigan along a roadside. It will be interesting to see how it will appear as the ivy leaves starts to grow on its side adding green to the coloring of the scene.

Ice Light

Winter tries to hold on tightly this Spring in Michigan. I found these formations of ice on the Pere Marquette lighthouse yesterday in Muskegon, Michigan along the shores of the big lake.

Winter Light

Each Grand Haven, Michigan winter produces its own signature in the way the ice freezes and melts, how much snow accumulates, etc. This is a winter past that I captured with the Lake Michigan lighthouse and pier in the background along with ice formations in the foreground. Winter can be beautiful.


Silhouette from the Sun

I caught this photographer in silhouette as he was opening his camera bag in preparation to photograph the sun setting once again over Lake Michigan at the end of the North Pier at Holland State Park. The structure there made for a nice framing device to emphasize the form of the photographer shown between its support pillars.

I created an HDR image of this old Railroad Trestle in Hamilton, Michigan with a snow covered waterway underneath the structure.


Lighthouse Sunset

Here is the final shot of this series of photos from the colorful sunset that I recently photographed along the shores of Lake Michigan at Grand Haven State Park. The pier and lighthouse structures give a sense of scale to the scene. Have a happy Thanksgiving!
