Dune Landscape

I ventured out to the State Park in Ludington, Michigan today where there were diverse landscapes including sand dunes, marshes and vernal pools. This particular image was one of my favorites for the day, showing those elements under a blue sky.

In Touch with Nature

With the sun shining brightly today, I decided to take a journey outdoors to get in touch with nature and at the same time hopefully find a few subjects worthy of capturing with my camera. You can be the judge if I succeeded 🙂

A Touch of Winter

Today brought a touch of Winter to Southwest Michigan. With the snow freshly fallen, I found this walkway as an interesting subject to show the beginning of the snowy season here.

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 🙂

A Beautiful Day in Michigan

I enjoyed some wonderful views and landscape scenes this afternoon in Southwest Michigan. The first image is of an old shed I discovered overgrown with vegetation:

I also found what I think were Blue Spruce trees and other evergreens in a meadow:

PineAnd of course I couldn’t resist photographing the rolling hills I found as clouds rolled along overhead:

So this was just another beautiful summer day in Michigan I’m happy to share with you here 🙂

Afternoon in the Country

I spent an afternoon this weekend driving a bit through the local countryside and discovered a distinct beauty the area offers. With the rich greens of the grasses, mixed with wide vistas and beautiful clouds, there were many opportunities to capture serene moments. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
