Brazenly Delicate

Tulip, Red, Garden, Tulips, Flower
This red tulip seemed to be taking a bold stand among another group of purple and white tulips. This is another flower I captured a couple of years ago at the annual Tulip Festival held in Pella, Iowa.

Deep red colors, like this tulip, can be a challenge for photographers because most cameras have a tendency to over-saturate the red and the image will loose all it’s detail; it can turn out looking like one big blob of red, with no texture or definition.  Most of my post processing on this image was working to control the red.

Splash of April Color

Tulips, Spring, Garden, Colorful

The tulip’s vivid colors and endless varieties are a most welcome sight of springtime in these parts.  This cluster of beauty was photographed a couple of years ago during the Tulip Festival in Pella, IA.

I’ve had a bunch of tulips from the festival on my computer patiently waiting to be processed.  With a bit of warmer weather and the prospect of blooming flowers on the horizon, I was reminded of the photo treasures I had yet to process and post.  I’ll have to get to more of them in the future.

Sunrise Solo

Lighthouse, Kewaunee, WI, Lake Michigan, Sunrise
A solitary seagull surveys the beauty of a Lake Michigan sunrise as it emerges beyond the Kewaunee, Wisconsin lighthouse and pier.

This is a scene from mid October, 2016.  It was a rough morning on the lake.  Of course, I was shooting from the shore, staying far enough away from the waves breaking on the beach to keep my equipment dry.  The gull was a nice addition.  It isn’t the only one in the sky.  If you view the larger version of this, you’ll be able to see a few others nearer the lighthouse.

Woodland Floor Decor

Mushroom, Mushrooms, Macro, RedThis was a delightful find on an autumn walk through the woods in northeast Wisconsin.  The tallest of these tiny red mushrooms was about 2 inches.

We stumbled upon these while trekking to some waterfall site in Marinette County, Wisconsin.  We found a number of colorful mushrooms on that trip.

The Autumn Heart

Leaf, Red, Autumn, Heart, Heart Shaped
An early morning sunrise, shining behind this leaf on one of our lilac bushes, brought out its brilliant fall color and intricate detail.

This is one of those times where something just caught my eye.  I was walking by a window, just about sunrise, when I noticed this bright leaf on a bush. I quickly grabbed my camera, hoping to catch the beauty before the shaft of light piercing the bush moved off this leaf.  I was there in time.

I love big landscape vistas.  I also love the smaller vistas.  As I always say – whatever catches my eye.

Carnival of Autumn Color

Sumac, Colorful, Autumn, Fall Foliage, Fall
The wide variety of hues in this patch of sumac reminded me of the bright colors you might find at an autumn carnival.

I had a few minutes before I had to be an an appointment so I thought I would make a quick stop at a local waterfall to, hopefully, catch a beautiful fall scene.  Well, the waterfall didn’t have much water falling; barely a trickle.  Even if it were flowing, there wasn’t much color in the foliage surrounding it.  However, there was a small patch of sumac in the area that was bursting with color. Normally the sumac turns a bright red. I’ve not encountered sumac in transition with such a wide range of colors before.  It made my stop worthwhile.

The Fall Bloom

Mums, Flowers, Fall Flowers, Orange, Red, Grteen
One of the favorite flowers of autumn are now in bloom.  Mums  are colorful, prolific and as popular as pumpkin spice and apple orchards in the fall. In fact, these mums were photographed on a recent visit to an apple orchard in central Ohio.  These were one of many colorful varieties of potted mums they had on sale. I selected these beauties because of their fall-like colors and the various stages of blooms in this bunch; from buds to the full flowers.

Red Vine

Red, Leaves, Vine, Green, Moss
On a hike though Wisconsin woodlands, the deep red color of the leaves on this vine, draped across a moss covered rock, caught my eye.

This was on a trip to photograph waterfalls in Marinette County.  On a very difficult, rocky trail to a viewing spot, I noticed the contrasting color.  Even though I was there for the waterfall, I couldn’t resist a quick capture.

Deeply Devoted to Love

Rose, Red, Red Rose, Drops, Macro, Dew, Black, American Rose
A closeup view of the delicate, and often emotional, beauty of the red rose.

On occasion, I’ve picked up a few long-stem flowers from a local florist for the main purpose of photographing them. Photographing flowers in the wild is a seasonal sport.  Photographing flowers purchased from the florist can be a year-round activity.

If I remember correctly, I set this one in a vase on my kitchen table.  I used the normal overhead and ambient light available in our kitchen. The drops you see are not water. (Though I’ll also use water in some shots.)  These drops are glycerin – looks like water but holds better to the petals.

Orange Plush

Sunrise, Sunset, Lighthouse, Orange, Clouds, Lake Michigan
The sky looked more like soft, flowing fabric above the Kewaunee, Wisconsin lighthouse, on the western shore of Lake Michigan.

This image was captured in early December of last year. (2014)  I stumbled upon it while looking for another image in my archives.  I thought it was worth sharing.

This is a slightly different perspective of the Kewaunee lighthouse than you’ll normally see in my posts.  This is from the north side of the pier.  Most of the time, I’m shooting from the south side.
