Somewhere Out There

When you look at this image, does it evoke feelings of  hopeful expectation or foreboding…or some of both?  The unknown can be both exciting and unsettling.

The morning of this photo shoot started out with thick fog but, eventually, the sun had it’s way.  This image portrays the epic battle. The field of battle was a Lake Michigan harbor at Algoma, WI.

Point of Inspiration

This is one of my favorites of the many photos I took Saturday morning (07/23/11).   It’s not the image I was going after but, believe me, I am not disappointed.

I made a special point of getting up early and heading to the harbor in Algoma, WI in hopes of capturing a beautiful sunrise. The sky looked promising as I drove, however, when I got to the harbor, it was enveloped by fog. There wasn’t going to be a sunrise to photograph. I decided to stick around anyway and capture some images of the lighthouse in the fog.  Since fog has a way of draining everything of color, I switched to shooting in black and white.

Eventually the fog lifted some, the sun got higher and I kept snapping.  This is the first of several images I’ll be sharing from that morning. Check back often.

I haven’t done much in black and white but after this series of photos, I think I’ll be doing more.

Kewaunee Morning Glory

Sometimes being up before sunrise pays off.  As evidence, I offer another image captured last Saturday morning (6/18/11).

This is a pre-sunrise view of the lighthouse and pier that extends into Lake Michigan at Kewaunee, WI.  This was taken a little before 5 am. I was on the small beach just south of the pier.

Stopped by the Sunrise

As soon as I got up this morning, I headed to the beach in Kewaunee, WI.  I thought this might be a good morning for some sunrise photos of the Kewaunee’s lighthouse on the shores of Lake Michigan. I got plenty of good images.

In this shot, someone, on an early morning walk (shortly after 5 am) along the pier, stops to take in the beautiful sunrise. I’m not positive, but I think they had a camera and were taking pictures.

Kewaunee’s Premium Blend

The best part of waking up…  The sky provided a blend of beautiful colors, layered from the red of the sun on the horizon to the blue, high in the early morning sky.

I made my way to the shore of Lake Michigan – to the Kewaunee, WI beach – to catch a 5:40 am sunrise on the morning of Saturday, April 30, 2011.

It’s interesting to see the different transformations that the sky goes through in the course of a half hour sunrise.  For a different look of the same sunrise, see my previous post “Morning Beam.”

Awakening at the Wayside

On my way to church early this morning (March 6, 2001) I noticed the sun breaking through the clouds over Lake Michigan.  I stopped at a wayside just south of Algoma, WI and took a few photos.

The wider view below was taken with a sweeping motion using the panorama setting on my camera – the Sony SLT-A55.

I have another image from this series that I’ll post soon.
