Kewaunee Consummation

Sunrise, Kewaunee, Lighthouse, Lake Michigan, Panorama
Lines, angles, clouds, color and light converge on the Kewaunee lighthouse and pier to create a panoramic morning view.

This is the compilation of three separate images, stitched together to create a wider view than would be possible with a single frame.

Just looking at the photo, you get the impression that it was a warm morning. That was not the case. It was a very cool, fall morning; near freezing.

Dawn Patrol

Lighthouse, Sunrise, Geese, Sea Gulls, Kewaunee,
On any given morning, you can find Canada geese and sea gulls patrolling the area around the Kewaunee, WI lighthouse. They seem like a vigilant group; quick to sound an alarm when intruders are detected.

This was the scene yesterday morning from the beach just north of Selner Park, on the shore of Lake Michigan. I was able to get out early and snapped a number of nice shots. I’ll try to post more from this morning in the near future.

Deer Friends

Deer, White-tailed Deer, Buck, Bucks
A couple of white-tailed deer were sharing a morning moment. It looks like one buck might be telling secrets to his relaxing friend. In reality, a little grooming was taking place. The standing deer was using his tongue to clean the ear of the other.

I grabbed this image at the small zoo at Bruemmer Park in Kewaunee County, WI. To get this shot, I had to focus through the high fence that keeps their small herd contained.

Fare Thee Well

Sunrise, Lighthouse, Lake Michigan, Waves, MorningOn September 16, 2017 there was a light layer of morning fog near the lighthouse at the mouth of the Kewaunee, WI harbor. The misty conditions managed to mute the sunrise over Lake Michigan.

If you look closely, you can see fishermen on the pier, near the lighthouse. Also, there’s a charter fishing boat shrouded by the fog, to the right of the lighthouse, on their way to deeper waters.

One Minute Sunset – 07-30-17

This is a time-lapse video of a July sunset at our home in rural Kewaunee County, WI.  This compresses about an hour of time into a minute.

Be sure to watch long enough to see the contrails (A trail of condensed water from aircraft at high altitude, seen as a white streak against the sky.)  There are three of them. It is easy to miss the first one. It shows up at about 27-seconds in as a light line coming in from the right side of the tree. The other two you won’t miss at 34 and 42 seconds. They come from the top of the frame and are prominent in the scene.

For the best viewing experience, you’ll want to watch this video at full-screen and high definition. To do so, click the controls in the bottom right corner of the video frame.

Color Me Country

Rainbow, Rural, House, Kewaunee, WI
It doesn’t happen often, but when a rainbow appears it so much better when I can capture it.

On this occasion, I was mowing the lawn when it started to rain.  I turned my mower toward the garage and noticed the rainbow forming.  I parked the mower and dashed into the house for my camera and an umbrella.  I had just enough time to snap a few photos before it dissipated.

This is actually a panoramic image.  I stitched four, portrait oriented images together to capture what you see here.  My camera and lens could not capture a wide enough view to fit all of the rainbow in one shot. I may have been able to capture all of it with a different lens, but I didn’t want to take the time to change lenses and maybe miss the shot.

Where There’s Smoke

Night, Fireworks, Smoke, July 4th, Kewaunee, WI
A lot of smoke from previous bursts added a dramatic effect to the sky for this cluster of fireworks at the annual Independence Day celebration at Kewaunee, WI.

As I mentioned in my previous post, the weather was very pleasant – in fact a perfect night on the lake shore – but there was little air movement. What little air movement there was, moved toward us from the direction we were viewing the fireworks. As a result, the smoke from the fireworks hung in the air and, as you can see here, obstructed our view at times. Still, a great time was had by all.

Color and Chaos

Fireworks, 4th of July, Independence Day, Kewaunee, WIThe rockets red glare and the bombs bursting in air gave proof through the night that the spirit of Independence Day was alive and well in Kewaunee, WI.  This well attended fireworks show is part of Kewaunee’s annual celebration.

The weather was wonderful for enjoying an evening with friends on the shore of Lake Michigan.  For the photographer in me, I could have used a bit more of a breeze at our backs.  That would have cleared the smoke away better, giving us an unobstructed view of the color and chaos.

Should Have Been There

Sunrise, Lighthouse, Lake Michigan, Kewaunee, WI, Orange
The blazing orange, pre-sunrise sky provides a brilliant background to the lighthouse and pier at Kewaunee, WI located on Lake Michigan’s western shore.

This is a compilation of three separate images, stitched together to create the full image you see here. The lens I was using was limiting my view, so to expand the viewing area I took several shots with the intention of joining them together later.  Normally the process doesn’t work well when there is movement in the frame – as you see with the waves in the foreground.  This one blended better than expected.

Rehabilitation Rising

Lighthouse, Kewaunee, Lake Michigan, Sunrise, Scaffolding
The Kewaunee, WI lighthouse has a different look lately.  It is undergoing renovation, as evidenced by the scaffolding surrounding the structure.

This was a photo taken just after sunrise from the beach at Selner Park, on the western shore of Lake Michigan. I’d heard they were sprucing up the lighthouse and decided I needed to get a photo while the work was in progress.

If you look closely, you can see a small fishing boat leaving the harbor, just visible off the end of the pier, where the sun is reflecting on the water.
