Beach Sunset

Its always a pleasure to enjoy the beauty of Lake Michigan and its beaches at anytime. But as the sun sets the sky erupts with color, the shadows on the waves deepen and the reflections on the wet sand are on display.

Great Blue

Great Blue Herons are one of my favorite subjects to photograph. I was especially happy to be close enough to photograph this one in flight.

Look Around

It was amazing to see these two visions of the sky within seconds of each other. As I finished photographing the dark sky in one direction, I looked around behind me to see another beautiful view.

Summer Solstice

The longest day of the year here in Michigan had plenty of sunshine as this Tiger Swallowtail butterfly demonstrated, soaking up the sun and nectar from flowers in a local field I discovered.

Burst of Orange

This male Baltimore Oriole discovered some pieces of fruit in the suet cake I had placed outside recently. Its burst of orange feathers caught my eye and moments later I was photographing him as he enjoyed a snack. The coloring was bright and vivid adding beauty to the day.

I had placed an orange outside to see what birds might be drawn to it. To my surprise, a Red-bellied Woodpecker took some interest. Its red head and patterned back along with the subtle, but unique, coloring of its belly made for a beautiful sight 🙂

A Time for Blossoms

I found this nearby tree bursting with fresh blossoms and couldn’t resist photographing its beauty. Here is a taste of Spring for you to enjoy as I did 🙂

“i” in the Sky

The sun and its reflection in Lake Michigan formed a beautiful “i” with the sunset last night. The beauty of nature never fails to amaze me. I hope you enjoy this moment as I did capturing it with my camera 🙂

First Steps

I captured the moment this little one walked from a man to a woman, most likely its parents, on the north breakwater light in Ludington, Michigan’s Stern park as the sun was setting. This lighthouse was voted one of the top 10 lighthouses to see in the U.S. by the Weather Channel. I think this family moment added its own beauty to the scene.
