Riding Waves on Lake Michigan

Riding Waves on Lake Michigan

Nature, Photography February 23, 2019

The year was 2010. It was a cloudy day in early autumn when I visited the Holland State Park, located in Holland, Michigan, along the north side of the channel between Lake Michigan and Lake Macatawa. I turned to photograph the historic Big Red Lighthouse on the opposing pier, as well as the picturesque southern shoreline, when, to my surprise, I spotted someone riding waves – catching big air!

Macro Glass Reflections

Macro Glass Reflections

Nature, Photography February 14, 2019

With macro photography, details make all the difference. Case in point, this “Macro Glass Reflections” close-up, in contrast to my earlier Fractured Glass blog entry (photographed yesterday).

Although my idea of using a large chunk of green glass as subject matter was a worthy consideration, the earlier image was photographed from a hand-held perspective. Today, however, the camera was placed on an immovable surface. The resultant clarity through minimizing movement accounted for a substantial difference in picture quality.

As regards lighting, the earlier photograph was taken yesterday afternoon, after the sunlight had moved beyond my window. Today’s “Macro Glass Reflections” picture, however, was photographed this morning as the sunlight beamed directly through my window and onto the glass. This adjustment certainly contributed to the improved definition and vibrant colors present.

Guests are encouraged to visit my gallery at Fine Art America to ascertain whether a particular print type may appeal as a new addition to one’s home decor.

Ocean Life

Ocean Life

Abstract, Nature February 8, 2019

Like many abstract artworks, it’s sometime not so easy to come up with an appropriate title for the piece. That is, unless you’re designing something in specific – which I wasn’t. After pondering the idea that this may appear to resemble an aerial view of a golf course – with greens, sand bunkers and water hazards – I opted instead for Ocean Life. Whichever train-of-thought you may prefer, you may enjoy it on a wall in your home or office by visiting my gallery at Fine Art America.

Mountain Landscape

This landscape photograph features a rocky outcropping on House Mountain, located near Knoxville, Tennessee. The mountain stands 1000′ above the surrounding valley. It has two different trails to the top, leading to a 1.5 mile ridge extending from end to end, which offers wonderful panoramic-views. The scene here is located along the White Trail¬†which finishes at the West Overlook.

Boulders Along The Trail

Boulders Along The Trail

During my 1-mile hike along a trail at House Mountain, located in Knoxville, Tennessee, an increased frequency of larger boulders became more commonplace. Looking uphill, I photographed this picturesque setting of several such boulders.
