Balloon Glow 1

We went to Seymour, Wisconsin yesterday for their annual Hamburger Festival and Balloon Rally. Just as we were leaving, I spun around to catch this view of hot air balloons firing up the burners to show off their colors.

Seymour lays claim to being the home of the hamburger – invented there in 1885. The festival and balloon rally continue today (August 4th, 2012) if you’re looking for something to do.  There’s no admission charge to the Balloon Rally. Learn more at http://homeofthehamburger.org/.

I’ll be posting more photos of this event in the days to come, so stay tuned.

A full moon rising over Lake Michigan was a complimentary, short-term companion to the lighthouse at Kewaunee. Moments after this image was taken, the moon slipped behind some clouds. Kewaunee, Wisconsin is located on the western shore of Lake Michigan.

Yesterday morning started with a light blanket of fog.  As the sun pushed it’s way up through the foggy horizon, it created a nice silhouette of some Queen Anne’s Lace that grows at the edge of the field of oats that is next to lawn of our country home.

Kewaunee Lighthouse at Sunrise

This is one of my earliest photos.  It was taken with a primitive (by today’s standards) consumer-grade,5mp digital camera.  It was capturing photos like this that made me want to take more.

I was going fishing in on Lake Michigan in my canoe, putting in from the beach at Kewaunee.  When I arrived, before sunrise, this is the scene I found.  The clouds had such an unusual quality I decided to try and get a photo.  There wasn’t much light and I didn’t have a tripod, so to steady the camera I held it on top of a post by the parking lot. As you can see, that worked well.

I don’t remember if I caught any fish that day, but I will always remember that sky.  By the way, I wasn’t the only one there to fish that morning.  If you look close, you can see two fishermen on the end of the pier.

I found this monarch butterfly clinging to the underside of a purple coneflower in a meadow very early morning.  It was obvious, this is where it spent the night.  It was still in sleep-mode when I photographed it.  I was able to nudge it without it flying off.  I eventually coaxed it  to the top of the flower and posted a photo of that earlier ( see it here: Monarch of the Meadow)

For a little different feel, I added a bit of texture to this one.

This bee was about some serious bee work on the center of a purple cosmos flower. I don’t recall seeing this particular type of bee before – with white hair, orange antennae and a yellowish-green eye. However, this year I’ve photographed several.

A couple of bees were working on this Sunflower when an ant decided to enter the picture. This is a flower in my wife’s flower bed. Not a flower she planted. One that was added by the birds dropping seeds from the feeders.

I was on the beach at Kewaunee, Wisconsin, taking photos of the lighthouse at sunrise. (Watch for that photo to be posted soon.)

I noticed the sun beginning to rise over the pier and started to take photos of it. Then I noticed two people walking along the pier, toward the sun, one from each direction. The two met and began talking.  I moved my camera to frame the two in the orb of light from the rising sun behind them.

The two were fisherman – you can see one with a landing net and rod in his hands.  I imagine they were discussing the recent fishing activity on the pier, like if any had been caught this morning, what they were biting on, how big they were…etc.
