Storm Rolling In


Copyright Jeffrey Foltice

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 :)

A Gift of Daisies and Pink Flowers

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!

Orange Lily

I photographed this bright orange lily along a Holland, Michigan roadside today. With temperatures of about 90° F today and recent rainfall, summer wild flowers seem to be blooming quickly in response.

Forest Shoreline

I enjoyed this view of a green shoreline on a cliff near the blue waters of Lake Michigan in St. Joseph, Mi. The colors of the trees and lake were vibrant on this summer afternoon.

Heavenly Coastal Waters – Or?


Copyright Jeffrey Foltice

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 :)
