Wherever your road takes you today, I hope it’s full of gratitude and love. Happy Thanksgiving 🦃🍁🧡

I admire this barn every time I pass it along M22. One morning last November it looked particularly ethereal, standing out of a dense fog that was rising off the melting frost.

This one breaks all the rules, but I loved the layers of the beach, breaking waves, and that sunset. So, horizon in the middle it is!

I spent the day editing winter images, and it really makes me excited for these beach views. It also makes me want to get the Christmas decorations out 😬 On a related note, I made a couple of requested images available for Christmas cards. Check my story for details. 👌🎄

It’s a roll of the dice trying to arrange night sky photography in northern Michigan, and especially dicey this time of year. Last night the weather was extra atrocious, with November gales bringing crashing waves to downtown Traverse City, and intense bands of sleet and snow to the Old Mission Peninsula...and not a star in sight. Thus I extend my sincere appreciation for my workshop participants, who trekked our into that abysmal situation with a cheerful attitude to practice what they had learned. Thanks so much! I had a great time with you despite the weather. And there are stars out tonight if you want more practice and aren’t too traumatized 😉

This time of year can be tough, because we see a lot of clouds. But when the sun does shine, it is the sweetest light. I literally ran from the Dune Climb to the lakeshore to capture this shipwreck fragment in this gorgeous lake effect light. I didn’t know what I’d find in terms of waves when I arrived, but once I saw a few splashes arcing like this, I took dozens of shots until I captured the wave motion that I wanted. It’s a happy coincidence that the sun backlit it so nicely for me. Have a great weekend! I won’t be posting tomorrow because I will be teaching my last workshop of the year. If you want in on other learning opportunities, keep your eyes posted. I’ll be doing more soon!

Big waves on the big lake 🌊

It’s been snowing intermittently all morning, and it’s making me look forward to scenes like this! Cold temps are much more pleasant when they bring snow instead of rain ❄️

Tree bones reach for the last rays over the Boardman River valley.

Gale season is upon us. It makes the lackluster fall a bit more lustery 😉 (Photo from November 2015)

Like a Seagull...
Should we aim to be more like this seagull, going about its business with little regard for the chaos raging around it?
Or should we be vigilant, aware of the storm surging nearby, ready to take flight at any moment?
Or should we say: cool lake shot! Look at that goofy bird 🙃

There were pockets of autumn splendor this year, but brown has been the dominant color. If winter is ready, so am I - especially if it means a lush carpet of snow under bluebird skies.
