Dusk – Water – Trees – Clouds – Michigan

There’s something special and wonderful about dusk in Michigan during Autumn. I found this scene on a waterway in the Upper Peninsula.

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.

Standing Watch

I found this Great Blue Heron today watching for prey over a local pond. Fish are among its favorite foods along with frogs. Both are in abundance at the pond it was searching.

I was happy to get very close to this Great Blue Heron today as it was flying in a local wetland area. I saw three more nearby, but this was my favorite flight photo from today. (click on this or any of my images to see an enlarged more detailed version)

Peace Among the Green

The waters of a local pond reflected the surrounding green foliage as I found this duck floating peacefully among lily pads today.

Green Eyes

I spotted this green eyed dragonfly as it perched on top of a stick that was above the surface of a pond today in Holland, Michigan. Its green eyes and pale blue body were a beautiful combination of colors.

Baby Swans

Looking through my files I ran across these cute baby mute swans, or cygnets, I photographed as they swam with their parents in West Michigan.



Heron Reflecting

I found this Great Blue Heron wading through a local wetland area today in Zeeland,  Michigan.  I didn’t see it catch any fish while I was there, but I’m sure it found some eventually as it seemed to be looking for a meal.

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.

Shades of Blue

The waters of Lake Michigan can look different minute to minute as this photo I took seems to demonstrate. The view from an overlook in St. Joseph, Michigan shows a variety of marine craft including a sail boat which are dwarfed by the huge lake. I found the variations in blue and the patterns they created in the water to be very interesting visually and ever changing.
