Autumn in the Country

I live in an area that has a variety of beautiful picturesque country scenes. I ran across this one recently as the leaves of the surrounding trees had changed color.

Fall color in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan is always a pleasure to see. I found this scene with a nice dark sky as a backdrop to help set off the colors even more.

Autumn in Michigan is a great time to go for a drive as this photo I took clearly demonstrates :)

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.
