It was a cold morning with 13-degrees Fahrenheit and patches of fog in our rural neighborhood.   This was a scene that caught my eye that morning. I tried to sharpen the trees a bit but the fog in the air kept everything soft.

I titled it Sky Iris because the sun in the trees remind me of a pupil and the fog-induced aura, accentuated by the branches, remind me of an eye’s iris.

Solar Eclipse – Partial

I almost missed this. I had heard that we might be able to view a smidge of the “Ring of Fire” eclipse that the West Coast was going to experience.  Even though I knew about it, I had written it off because the weather forecast talked of rain starting in the afternoon. Naturally, I assumed, we wouldn’t even see a sunset and just put it out of my mind.

As it happens, while working on some other photos on my computer, I noticed an odd color in the sky and, out of habit, took a look.  Then I remembered!  And, then I dashed for my camera.  As I ran out the door I told my wife to look out the window and I would be outside taking pictures.

We only saw a partial eclipse, but it put on a nice show any way.

Embrace of the Sun

One of the things I like to do is catch the sun peeking from behind the Algoma, WI lighthouse.  I took this image last Sunday morning on my way to church.  The sun is rising pretty early in these parts right now.  This photo was snapped around 5:55 am.

More clouds in the sky would have made this a more interesting image for me.  The one thing I do like – and the reason I think it’s worthy of sharing – is the way the sun seems to reach around the lighthouse.  The rays remind me of  arms reaching around to gently, warmly caress the lighthouse. A good morning hug!

I’ve isolated and enlarged the lighthouse to give you a better view of the sun’s embrace. (Right)

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.
