Dripping with Passion


Spider Web, Wet, Covered with Dew, Web, Dripping, PurpleOn a foggy morning, moisture clings to a spider web. I love how the tiniest drops can form on the thinnest of web fibers.

This is a companion to another image taken the same morning that I posted earlier.  (Connect the Dots)  The first one was photographed with a black background. This one had a maroon background because this spider web was draped from the door to the side mirror of my old van.

This is some of my first work with extension tubes – a lens attachment used in macro photography.  I need to work on sharpness.  This image is not quite as sharp as I want it to be, but it was interesting enough to share.

Misty Morning Boardwalk

Boardwalk, Algoma, WI, Bench, Fog, Mist, Foggy, Misty, Blue
As dawn begins to break over the Crescent Beach boardwalk in Algoma, WI, a light fog mutes the colors and quiets the light.

I left home by 4:30 to catch the sunrise at Algoma.  But, as you can see, the sunrise was not to be seen.  Well, not as I was expecting, anyway.

Foggy River


River, Fog, Foggy, Morning Fog, Sunrise, Kewaunee, Wisconsin, WI
On my way to the Lake Michigan shore…just around the bend from my house…I cross the Kewaunee river. As I was returning home after shooting a sunrise over the lake, I stopped to snap a few of the river.

There is often a hint of fog in the cool, low lying areas of the river, but this morning there was more than usual and the warmth of the still rising sun (just out of the frame on the right) added a great quality to the scene.

Fog is always cool but, I think, one of the more challenging situations to photograph.  I find it very difficult to capture in the camera what the eye can see.  Even when you can snag a cool scene like this, it still lacks the actual experience.

The Frozen Wondra

Frost, Mist, Fog, Lighthouse, Kewaunee, Cold, Winter
When extremely cold temperatures combine with the open water of Lake Michigan, it creates a foggy atmosphere. Take a calm morning – with no hint of a breeze – and mix the misty moisture in the air with those extremely cold temperatures and it will freeze to practically everything as a thick, but fluffy, frost. Wonderful stuff.

In the background, of course, is the well-known Kewaunee, Wisconsin pier and lighthouse.

Sullenly

Winter, Kewaunee, Cold, Monochrome, B&W, Shadows, Tree, Lighthouse, Moody
The clouds and mist rising from Lake Michigan created a sullen scene at the Kewaunee, Wisconsin pier and lighthouse.

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.

Icy Morning Mist

Ice, Harbor, Lighthouse, Rocks, Sunrise, Algoma, Mist
When air temperatures are below freezing, the slightly warmer Lake Michigan waters can create a mist around areas that haven’t frozen over.  The early sun highlights the mist around the harbor and lighthouse of Algoma, WI.

Last February I posted another, very similar, view of this morning scene entitled, Frigid Sunrise Fog. This version offers more of the rocks and ice in the foreground.

Sky Iris

Fog, Mist, Foggy, Misty, Trees, Cold, Winter, Sun, Sunrise, Sky, Sunbeams
It was a cold morning with 13-degrees Fahrenheit and patches of fog in our rural neighborhood.   This was a scene that caught my eye that morning. I tried to sharpen the trees a bit but the fog in the air kept everything soft.

I titled it Sky Iris because the sun in the trees remind me of a pupil and the fog-induced aura, accentuated by the branches, remind me of an eye’s iris.

Dream Boat

Sailing, Sailboat, Boating, Mist, Lake Michigan
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.

Road to Nowhere

Road, Yellow Line, Fog, Foggy, Rural, Perspective, Bill Pevlor, Pops Digital

On a foggy winter morning I was out snapping scenery. I decided to take a different perspective on a road near our home.

This is one of those images where you can stare and contemplate what deep meaning the artist was trying to convey.  (That’s what I’m doing.)
