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)

 

Engulfed In Color

I found this tree today engulfed with Fall Color on a West Michigan roadside. With so much rain and high winds in recent days, many of the trees in the area have lost their leaves. I was happy to find some nice examples that had survived those conditions, still displaying their full brilliance.

 

Boater at Peace

A boater guided his craft in the peaceful waters of Pigeon Lake in Ottawa County, Michigan recently. I captured the moment as the sun was setting, giving a golden-orange hue to the surrounding waters. (click on this or any of my images to see an enlarged more detailed view)

 

Autumn Glory

Autumn is one of my favorite times of year, in large part due to the beautiful colors that seemingly explode from the trees. I decided to focus on a more detailed photo of a leaf and found it interesting to add a layered look to the image by positioning the angle of view to show another leaf behind the one in the foreground.

Sky Afire

I woke up to an amazing sky today. It seemed to be full of fire and the display was incredibly beautiful. I was looking for an interesting foreground when I found these electric power transmission lines and towers. I thought the interaction between nature and man was interesting. I also wondered if in time towers such as these will become obsolete when new methods of transferring the power needs of people may be found.

 

Morning Sunburst

I enjoyed a spectacular sunrise this morning and was happy with the thought of sharing it here. This was taken near Hudsonville, Michigan where there were a few opportunities to find open fields in an agricultural setting. Fortunately, this offered more of a clear view to the horizon.
