A number of people have told me this stretch of highway, just before you reach Gills Rock at the northern tip of the Door County, WI peninsula, is the most photographed road in the world.  I don’t know who’s keeping track, but a number of people stopped and got out of their cars to snap a quick photo while I was there. In fact, I left my home before sunrise just to get there and this shot in the early morning light.

My intent was to make it an “Autumn Colors” tour and get some great fall foliage.  I didn’t get much else worth noting.  Once the sun was up, it was clear and bright – creating too much contrast and washing out the colors.

I spent a good deal of time in processing this image. A lot of that time was spent removing a power line that stretched across the upper part of the image. Thanks to the magic of software…with a bit of skill and a bunch of patience…an unsightly distraction was eliminated. I thought about removing the mailbox and For Sale sign on the right, but decided it wasn’t too distracting and probably added to the rural feel.

Bejeweled Begonia

Begonia, Flower, Yellow, Dew, Rain, Drops, Dripping
This is an extreme close-up of a potted begonia I photographed at our home, after an early morning shower.

This is part of my experimentation with macro photography. This image was created using a technique to overcome the limited depth of field in macro photography known as focus stacking. This image is a blend of three separate photos – each focused on a different part of the flower. I think more experimentation is needed.

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.

You can’t help but smile when you see the bright, happy faces of the delicate, blooming violas.

These are some of our favorites in the garden.  They seem to be very prolific, popping up in the lawn and other flowerbeds where they weren’t planted.

Golden Shrimp Plant

Queen Monoplane

They don’t make them like this anymore.  This is the Queen Monoplane – a part of early aviation history.  As you can see by it’s markings, it was used to deliver mail.  It is part of the historic aviation displays at the Experimental Aircraft Association’s (EAA) AirVenture Museum in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

The E.A.A. museum is a very cool place to learn about the history of aviation.  You’ll find historic aircraft and information from the Wright Brother’s flyer to spacecraft.  They have a great Warbirds exhibit.
