Field of Forever

I found this field of flowers that seemed to stretch on forever when I went out yesterday. It’s amazing what we can find practically in our backyards if we just take the time to go out and look :)

Golden Grass

I found this beautiful golden dune grass growing not far from Lake Michigan a few days ago. The sun was lighting the grass as the wind gently blew them back and forth.

 

 

Purple Marsh

I ran across the marsh area full of purple loosestrife a few days ago in Southwest Michigan. The colors were quite striking with the surrounding greens of the marsh and the blue sky overhead.

Storm Rolling In

Some storm clouds rolled into Southwest Michigan today. It was a strange mixture of clouds, heavy rain, hail, blue skies and lightning that went through this afternoon. I caught this interesting formation as it passed by.

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.

Daisy Pollination

This time of year is great for photographing flowers in Southwest Michigan. I found this daisy in a field of yellow flowers while an insect was pollinating it. If you click on the image you can see a bit more detail in an enlarged version :)

Blue to Come

I found these blueberries as they were ripening on the vine today at an abandoned orchard in Ottawa County, Michigan. They still have a while to go before they will be ready to pick and eat. Blueberries are nature’s No. 1 source of antioxidants. The U.S. Department of Agriculture designates July as National Blueberry Month.

Beauty in the Day

I found these colorful flowers today growing in a wooded area of Ottawa County, Michigan. They displayed their beauty for anyone to enjoy that happened to be walking by, and now you can enjoy it as well :)

This post is for you who enjoy pink flowers and daisies :) I found them growing near each other in a local wetland area in Ottawa County, Michigan. I hope it brightens your day!
