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 Early Stretch

Spring, Green, Leaves, Twig, Branch, Growth

One of the glories of spring is “new growth” – as flowers bud and leaves sprout in the woodlands. This is a twig bursting forth with new life; awakening from its deep, winter slumber.

A lot of my images are captured on hikes through the woods with my wife. When we hike, you can bet my camera is with me. I often stop in mid-stop and begin focusing on something that would seem painfully plain and ordinary to most people. In these moments, something has caught my eye and sparked my imagination. I see some shape or texture or exquisite light that I want to save – if possible. (It’s not always possible.)

Often the greatest challenge in photography is being able to capture, with a camera, what my eye sees. Sure, you can snap a photo of a scene or object, but the camera has a difficult time of capturing the essence and full spectrum of beauty our eyes can perceive. (With, no doubt, some artistic enhancement provided by the filter of our own soul.)

Let’s be honest. This is an image of a simple, ordinary twig. But there is something about the warm glow of late afternoon light that is revealing the texture of the leaves…something about the early stage and directional flow of the leaves. To me, this simple twig has a seductive quality to it. I’m glad I stopped to capture it.

Tree Dwellers

Mushroom, Mushrooms, Tree, Woods, Woodland, Fungus, FungiOn a walk through the woods, I spotted this collection of mushrooms growing in the hollow of a large tree.  I thought the colors, textures and just the oddity of mushrooms growing in a tree made it an interesting sight.

Forest Friend

Chipmunk, Eastern Chipmunk, Nature, Woodland, Cute
On a recent stroll through the woodlands of rural N.E. Wisconsin, I engaged in a prolonged staring contest with this Eastern Chipmunk.  After viewing this photo, I declared myself the winner.

I spotted several of these little fellows who seemed to freeze the moment they saw me.  I expect, they were hoping if they remained motionless, I wouldn’t notice them.  I wonder how many of them I may have walked past and missed.

When I did see this guy, I stopped and took a photo.  Then, as he remained motionless, I moved in a foot closer…and then another foot…and another – until he no longer could endure my intrusion into his personal space.  Thankfully, he was more tolerant than I expected.

The fallen leaves are almost as beautiful on the ground as they were on the trees. I’m glad I didn’t have to rake this clearing in the woods.

Fall In the Creek

A serene scene of natural beauty. Colorful autumn leaves blanketed the ground and floated by on a gently flowing Wisconsin woodland stream.

This is an image from last fall in the woods across the field from our home. A very peaceful, highly enjoyable morning in the woods.

Ending On A High Note

Leaves, Red, Fall, Fall Foliage, Autumn, Fall Colors
When this photo was made, most of the leaves in the forest had fallen. These red leaves were some of the last hold outs. Even though their days were numbered, they were making the most of their time…going out in dramatic fashion…in a blaze of red.
