The waves of Lake Michigan themselves can make for a great photographic subject. Each is unique and ever changing. In this case I caught the sun backlighting the wave, revealing luminous shades of green at the wave’s peak.

I found this stream flowing into Lake Michigan today not far from Fennville, Michigan. I used the reverse “S” compositional technique along with the choice of monochrome to enhance the mood.

Great Horned Owls seem to prefer hunting from elevated areas that overlook fields. They can hear and see their prey more easily from such an unobstructed vantage point. This one I photographed in Southwest Michigan near such a field.

These birds reminded me of Christmas tree ornaments as they rested on the branches of a pine tree.

The interaction of light and shadow along with the glow of the sun to me gave the appearance of a dragon in the sky, complete with fire about to emerge from its mouth.
