Something Wicked in the Woods

Woods, Forest, Roots, Wicked, Tangled, Upper Michigan
The tangle of roots from a fallen tree seemed like something wicked among the greenery of a Upper Michigan forest.

This seems a bit of an oddity among my usual selection of pretty flowers and glowing sunrises.  The curve of the dead, aging wood, in contrast with the new, green life around it caught my eye.

I debated whether to make it a monochrome image but decided the green wasn’t bright enough to hinder the mood.  And, again, I liked the contrast.

Curvaceous

Road, Curvy, Door County, Fall, Fall Foliage, Curves, Winding,
A number of people have told me this stretch of highway, just before you reach Gills Rock at the northern tip of the Door County, WI peninsula, is the most photographed road in the world.  I don’t know who’s keeping track, but a number of people stopped and got out of their cars to snap a quick photo while I was there. In fact, I left my home before sunrise just to get there and this shot in the early morning light.

My intent was to make it an “Autumn Colors” tour and get some great fall foliage.  I didn’t get much else worth noting.  Once the sun was up, it was clear and bright – creating too much contrast and washing out the colors.

I spent a good deal of time in processing this image. A lot of that time was spent removing a power line that stretched across the upper part of the image. Thanks to the magic of software…with a bit of skill and a bunch of patience…an unsightly distraction was eliminated. I thought about removing the mailbox and For Sale sign on the right, but decided it wasn’t too distracting and probably added to the rural feel.

Sara

pho·to·gen·ic   [foh-tuh-jen-ik]

adjective

1. forming an attractive subject for photography or having features that look well in a photograph: a photogenic face.

When you look up the word “photogenic” in the dictionary, you should see Sara’s photo.

No doubt about it.  Some people are photogenic.  I’m blessed to have a wife that is one of them.  However, she’s not always willing to jump in front of a clicking camera.  I usually have to do a little coaxing.

This was a shot from the Happy Birthday to Me session.

Happy Birthday to Me!

It was my birthday (55) yesterday and when my wife asked me what I’d like to do, I told her I wanted to get outdoors and take a new photo of ourselves.  I take a lot of pictures, but rarely capture both of us together.

We had an enjoyable afternoon, a fun time…and I’m pretty pleased with the result.  Isn’t she a beauty!  (Inside and out) I’m a blessed man!
