Making a starburst image of the setting sun, is not difficult. But finding the right circumstances, weather, timing, and framing can be difficult. In this case, I didn’t plan it. I saw it, grabbed my camera and tried to find a view without the pesky water tower!

Spring 2019 – a Quick Look
First of Spring
The snow of the cold winter is gone and the ground is thawing. Spring is beginning to emerge! With it comes a new camera – a mirrorless Sony a7 IIIr, which has the features of my Nikon D800. But it weighs a fraction of the 10-15 pounds I’ve been carrying. While these aren’t stellar images, they are a result of learning. The Sony menus are very different and I have a ways to go to find the settings that work for me. Enjoy Spring as it bursts forth!

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!)
Fall Sunrises over Houghton Lake
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.
