Upper Peninsula Shores

Upper Peninsula Shores

Nature, Photography March 2, 2019

This landscape photograph of an expansive, rocky shoreline was taken on Lake Superior, in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Specially, at Presque Isle in Marquette.

To see it for yourself may require extensive travel time and expense. So, instead, I’d recommend that you visit my gallery at Fine Art America to bring this coastal landscape into your home. Several print types are available, including: framed, canvas, art, wood, acrylic and metal – customize to suit your wishes.

Stop by for a visit, sometime!

This black and white photography features a forest setting with large rows of deteriorating, moss-covered concrete slabs aligned in a row. If you’d be interested in seeing more, don’t stumble through the woods hoping to uncover an ancient civilization – stop by my gallery at Fine Art America, instead.

Hope to see you soon…don’t get lost!

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.

If you’d be interested in a print, then visit my gallery at Fine Art America. Enjoy!

Down The Mountain

As part of my House Mountain in Knoxville, TN series…

Part Four: Conclusion

It was a great day hiking House Mountain, and I certainly would recommend this as a day-trip for anyone in the area wishing to enjoy the great outdoors! Bring the proper clothing, water and camera – and prepare to rest along the way to fully enjoy the scenery. And, expect to be sore the next day!

 Following 4 miles of hiking up the Mountain Trail (blue trail) and back-and-forth along the Crest Trail, I began the 1-mile decent down the mountain. Here are some photographs I took along the way…

It’s difficult to see, but if you look closely at Photograph 3 & Photograph 4, you’ll observe that the trail turns abruptly at times, usually associated with steep, rocky terrain. In a few instances, I had to pack my camera in order to free both hands for a safe descent around such turns on the trail. So, be careful!

Visiting House Mountain –

If you’d like to review my collection of House Mountain photographs as prints, then stop by my gallery at Fine Art America to have a look around! Thanks.

I plan to return to the mountain for another hike, probably along a different (red) trail…so, see you then!

Shores of Lake Superior

Shores of Lake Superior

Nature, Photography December 2, 2018

It’s often said that a person can never go home again. That is, everything changes with time. Even memories fade. In fact, some recollections can become embellished to such a degree that they seem more wonderful than reality might otherwise have one believe. In such instances, a visit to a place from the past can fall flat in the face of one’s romanticized vision. Yet, with a different sense of appreciation – and at just the right moment – magic can happen and memories may be bested.

That was my experience, here. This rough shoreline strewn with rocks and driftwood is located on the shores of Lake Superior, in Michigan’s upper peninsula, north of Marquette at Little Presque Isle. Growing up in the area during my childhood, I had the opportunity to visit this spot several times over the years, as well as on a few occasions during my travels as an adult. 

It should be noted that the shores of Lake Superior are dynamic, constantly changing as a result of storms and the seasons. That said, and while I’d always considered this spot a place of beauty, I was astounded during a visit in later years (this photograph) that the shoreline was even more compelling than I remembered – something I couldn’t have imagined until that day!

A great day, indeed. If you’d be interested in owning a print of this Michigan landscape, then please visit my gallery at Fine Art America. A variety of print types are available – framed, canvas, art, wood, metal and acrylic. I’ve also added this image to my gallery at Zazzle, where other items may be found.

I hope that you will enjoy this rugged, ever-changing landscape of Michigan’s upper peninsula on Lake Superior. Thanks for stopping by!

Snow In The Woods

Nature, Photography November 18, 2018

Although falling snow can sometimes serve as an impediment for good photographs – large, blurred streaks – my walk today in the snow covered forest was a pleasant excursion into nature, where I found several nice winter scenes along the way. The trail I followed is located at Island Drive Park in Ann Arbor, Michigan, meandering aside the Huron River near the soccer fields of Fuller Park.

Some mornings are more scenic than others. A few weeks ago, after I’d started the coffee, I observed these lovely clouds. So, I gathered my camera and stepped out on to the balcony to capture this silhouette sunrise. I’ve added this image to my gallery at Fine Art America, where a variety of print types are now available – framed, canvas, art, metal, acrylic and wood. Stop by for a visit!
