Green Day

It was another beautiful summer afternoon today. I explored a bit and was happy to find some areas I hadn’t seen before. There are so many forested areas, wetlands, lakes and parks in West Michigan, I’m determined to find new ones to enjoy and photograph. Today I did just that and have two landscape images to share :)

Luminous Green

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.

One of the perks of living near Lake Michigan are the beautiful sunsets and lighthouse views :)

Look Up

Sometimes all you need to do is look up, as I did when this green heron flew right above me in a wetland area in Southwest Michigan near sunset.

I caught this pair of ducks floating along as the sun’s reflection formed in the water along with the vibrant colors at dusk in Muskegon County, Michigan.
