Look to the Sky

Clouds are one of the first subjects to inspire me to be a photographer. I couldn’t resist photographing a few today. They not only provide shade on a hot sunny summer afternoon, they provide life giving rain and fleeting beauty as they sail by. (A note of caution to anyone photographing the sun as I did in the first image- I was careful to use my video screen and pre-focus. Looking through your viewfinder toward the sun will damage your eye)

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.

Heavenly Coastal Waters – Or?

I found this in my files from a photo shoot I did a couple of years ago that I wanted to share here. A colorful shoreline by a heavenly tropical Island with clouds reflecting in ocean waters? Or, in reality, clouds lit dramatically after the sun had set. The high contrast, color and texture of a linear cloud bank brought to mind thoughts of an ocean shoreline :)

Rose in the Storm

As the leading edge of a storm passed overhead in Southwest Michigan today, I used my iPhone camera to capture some of the clouds. There was a rose colored tint to some of them before the afternoon seemed to turn to night minutes later.

I captured this moment yesterday over an open field in Ottawa County, Michigan. A storm had just passed over the area. The darker clouds toward the bottom center of the image show the rain falling along the horizon in the distance. (click on this or any of my images to see an enlarged, more detailed version)

Clouds Above a Hill

I found this small grouping of trees on a hill today as a large bank of clouds passed overhead. There were rain showers in West Michigan today as the temperature reached the 70 degree range. More flowers should be popping up soon with the rain and warmer weather.

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!

Happy Earth Day!

This flight of birds going toward heaven seemed to me to be a great way to reflect on Earth Day and appreciate the beauty of nature. I took the photo over Holland, Michigan during a sunset. Here’s a link to a story about some of my work including this image: http://the-re-view.org/jeffrey-foltice/

Tranquility

I attempted to capture the tranquility at day’s end in Holland, Michigan as the sun was setting with this image. Golden/orange light reflects of the ice of Lake Macatawa in the foreground.

Day’s End

I captured this moment yesterday as the sun was departing for the day over the cold and icy waters of Lake Michigan near the state park in Holland. Mounds of ice can be seen in the foreground with the open waters of the big lake beyond.
