This is an image that dates back a few years. I was searching for it on this website and was surprised that I had never posted here. It’s a digitally enhanced version of one of my most popular images – Break of Dawn. (See the original HERE) The original is a wonderful color image. It would be my favorite of the two, but I also like the aged look this one receives from the monochrome and textured effects.

This was one of the last images I snapped on a very cold (below zero) morning of shooting. I’d been out there a lot longer than I would have thought – about an hour and forty-five minutes – but I found plenty to point my camera at. I was the only one braving the elements that morning. All of the footprints you see in the snow were made by me.
I had decided to call it a morning, was dismantling my equipment, folding my tripod and packing up to head home. I looked back over my shoulder and noticed the shadows from the tree and it drew me back for a few more minutes.

The early morning sunlight reflecting off the dew on a spring lawn created an effect that reminded me of dozens of flash bulbs going off. The Paparazzi must have been hiding in the grass. I hear they’re tricky that way.
A year ago, I posted a color image with a similar perspective: Lawn Twinklers.

It was a calm but misty day for sailing on Lake Michigan off the shores of Two Rivers, Wisconsin. The light fog gave this boat a mysterious, dream-like quality. The low bank of clouds also add interest to the background.

Yesterday morning, I was at the lakeshore to capture a sunrise. The thick clouds keep the sun from view…until…
The bright sun finds it’s way through the heavy cloud cover over Lake Michigan as fishermen troll near the Kewaunee, WI lighthouse and pier.
