A recent walk though some woods provided a lot of fall color. On this trip, I focused on the small picture – close-up images of colorful leaves.
This caught my eye because of the combination of red and green against the dark background.
It seemed the smaller leaves were resisting the change. A youthful rebellion.

Like sentinels with bayonets drawn, two fishermen are on high alert, ready for the bite. These stalwart anglers are fishing for salmon in the early morning fog. Their lures are plying the waters of Lake Michigan, off the pier at Algoma, Wisconsin.

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.
The beautiful colors of autumn are a testimony to God’s artistic creativity. What a blessing to behold the autumn leaves.
The leaves in our area have faded and stripped from the trees by gusty fall winds this last week. But we still have some dandy images.

The beauty of Autumn’s colors are not limited to the trees. I found these gorgeous mums blooming at the entrance of the Public Library in Algoma, Wisconsin.
Hats off to whoever tended the their small flower bed. It was a continual source of blooming beauty all season.

This was taken at the the Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary in Green Bay, Wisconsin. If you’re into these little critters, there are an abundance of them along the pathways.

Getting the moon (or sun) in just the right position is a challenge in itself. You don’t realize how much movement there is in a rising or setting sun. The moment you get into position, the subject has moved off their mark. On both of these shots, I would be constantly moving to my left and down the bank along the beach, trying to line up the shot.

It’s autumn in Wisconsin and the leaves have turned brilliant colors. In this area, one of the most transformations is the wild sumac plant – turning from green to orange and then a deep red.
This is the tip of a wild sumac branch being illuminated by the morning sun. The photo doesn’t do it justice.
