Fall Color at the Arboretum

Bright yellow maple leaves greeted us today at Morton Arboretum. These images were captured mostly in East Woods where maple trees abound. It was late afternoon, with sunshine being overtaken by clouds. Everywhere we looked there was yellow, bright yellow. I love the East Woods! (A few Impressionist images are included!)

Sunrise – Fog – Lake

The fog was heavy this morning in northern Michigan. The first view looked like the horizon was at infinity. Then the sun briefly peaked out and reflected off the water. Then the clouds covered the sun. An hour later, the fog had burned off the lake, but the other side was still vague. The clouds started taking shape on the horizon when the fog lifted.

Sunset on Houghton Lake, East Shore

The Class of 60s Houghton Lake High School Reunion is always a lot of fun, and one of my favorite photographic parts is watching the sunset.Last night was a gorgeous sunset! And several of us watched the whole process of the the sun going down below the horizon. Here are a sequence of images of the sunset. Watch for the glowing clouds!

Val d’Orcia or Valley of the Orcia River in Tuscany

The Tuscany photography workshop I attended in June was held in and around the Val d’Orcia, a UNESCO site and covers an extensive area. Vineyards, agriculture, sheep pastures, and many medieval cities are contained in the area. The views of the entire valley were gorgeous. Here are just a few images I captured of this lovely valley.
