This sunset image was taken last March near Peterson Park. I pulled over on N. Foxview Drive and shot the sunset from my car window. It was one of those sunsets where the clouds caught fire the lower the sun sank.
Fall's brilliant colors bring out the photographer in all of us. Typically, my favorite fall images are highlighted with red, orange, and yellow hues. But this stand of oak trees on N. Kilcherman Road really grabbed me at the very end of the color season. I was lucky to have the brilliant browns framed by a blue sky.
Another area I enjoy exploring in the fall is Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, although it's a challenging place to gauge peak season. This image of Alligator Hill was early in the color season, but I enjoyed seeing the clear profile of an alligator.
This image of a pine plantation, taken near the south end of Woolsey Airport, is a favorite of mine. I love the symmetry of these pine stands and how the snow on the branch tops adds a horizontal plane to the image.
This sunrise at the Bight is one of the most spectacular images I've captured. I was awed by the reflection of the sky in the water. It became the cover to my 2014 calendar and was also a popular print at my bazaars.
Night photography is one of my favorite kinds of picture-taking. This image of the Northern Lights was taken at one of the beaches in Cherry Home Shores neighborhood. It is a breathtaking experience to watch the long exposure of the auroras unfold before you.
