Flaming Oak

I spotted this oak leaf that had changed color in a Southwest Michigan park recently. The shape and color reminded me of a flame.

A Taste of the Sun

I walked past this flower, but its glow caught the corner of my eye and I went back to investigate. It was beautifully illuminated by the sun. I decided to use my Canon 50mm F-2.5 lens to reveal the details and vibrant colors of the flower, including orange, yellow, green and pink.

Translucent Wings

I had the opportunity to photograph this Viceroy butterfly from an unusual perspective. The view was from under its wings as light passed through them revealing beautiful patterns and coloring.

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.

Tulips on Fire

This field of orange and yellow colored tulips invoked an image of flames to me as I photographed them today in Holland, Michigan. Tulips were blooming throughout the city on this warm Spring day.

Silhouette from the Sun

I caught this photographer in silhouette as he was opening his camera bag in preparation to photograph the sun setting once again over Lake Michigan at the end of the North Pier at Holland State Park. The structure there made for a nice framing device to emphasize the form of the photographer shown between its support pillars.

As I photographed the sun among the clouds recently, I thought of it as a landscape in the sky, hence the title “Skyscape”.

 

Afterglow

This was taken a short time after the sunset of the previous image in Grand Haven, Michigan over the waters of Lake Michigan. The perspective has changed with my choice of a wider angle lens along with the dramatic transition in the lighting, color and texture of the clouds.

Edge of the Earth

The sky was ablaze with color over the weekend as the sun was setting below the waters of Lake Michigan. I enjoyed this spectacular view last Sunday from my vantage point on the beach at Grand Haven State park in Ottawa County, Michigan.

 

Lonely Sea

I spotted this lonely looking ship on the horizon of Lake Michigan just after sunset tonight. The afterglow from the sunset worked as a beautiful background to separate the dark clouds above from the dark waters below. (Click on the image to see an enlarged version)
