Blue, Black, & White
Blue Heron standing in the water near Cana Island at sunny mid-day. I photographed into the sun which created sparkling spots on the surface of the water. The photo is nice in color but I think stands out more as a monochrome image.
Don't Be Afraid Of Color
Fishing Pier near Sturgeon Bay.
Coast Guard Station
It was a lovely day when we visited the Pierhead Lighthouse near Sturgeon Bay. The coast guard station and lighthouse made a pretty scene when we turned around.
Surprises at the Pier Head
My family visited Door County and we stopped at the Pierhead Lighthouse. The people walking are my son and his girlfriend. They were quite taken aback to see a buck with one antler swimming far into the lake. It was a great distance off shore and swimming away from land. There are no islands there and it was not going toward any shoreline. We all thought it would perish.
Rocky Point Sunset
I named this spot which is in reality just a bit of beach head near where I was staying in Door County. The sunset glowed purple red and blue for a long time and it was a delight to spend time there.
Cana Island Abstract
While visiting Cana Island we walked to the shoreline and enjoyed the sunny day. I noticed how the water elected the brilliant sun into bokeh and had lots of fun photographing several versions of this scene.
Waves In Slow Motion
A longer shutter speed to give the waves a softer look. Near Sturgeon Bay
The view from the shoreline along Lake Michigan near Sturgeon Bay. The sunset went on and on with beautiful hues of pink, purple and blue.
The Winter Harbor
The ships are moored for winter in the Sheboygan Harbor ice. It was a grey snowy day when we photographed the harbor so B&W fit the scene. I had a lovely weekend in Door County with friends photographing the beauty of our lovely DC.
Cave Point - A B&W Dawn
It is fun to work with an image to create a different mood. The original photo is soft with pastel colors. I think it looks a bit moodier in B&W. If you click on the image to view it with a black border it shows this effect a bit better. Thanks.
