Stacked Rocks

This is part of the scenic Cave Point County Park. Exploring the shores of Door County (a peninsula) you find a lot of the stacked rocks you see on the beach. Cave Point is full of low bluffs and water swirling under the rock. The rock piles are called cairns. These have become more numerous […]

Red Door

This is part of  a long building that looks like an old barracks with a vegetable stand on one end. While our group was shopping for vegetables grown out back I walked around this building to get a bunch of photos of this interesting place. The owners could not figure out what I was doing. […]

Golden Hour on Lake Michigan

Sunrise on North Bay near Baileys Harbor in Door County, Wisconsin. This view always has spectacular colors but you have to get up early to see them. However, watching the full moon come over the horizon happens in early evening, a much better time.

Subtle tones

I really liked the soft tones of some photos I have seen and I have been looking for ways to accomplish the effect. What I found was that you really have to take these photos during the “Golden Hour.” That is, take your photos about 10 minutes before sunrise/sunset to 10 minutes after. The light […]

Road to Northport

For landscape and travel photographers there are two “must have” scenic areas to visit in Wisconsin. One is the Road to Northport (also known as the Winding Road) and the other is Fredrickson’s Bait Shop on Star Lake. This is the Windy Road which is Highway 42 at the top of the Door County peninsula […]

Morning on North Bay

A few minutes after sunrise on North Bay in Door County, Wisconsin. A great time and place to sit back and enjoy a cup of coffee. Perhaps heading out in the kayak afterwards? This is near Baileys Harbor, Wisconsin looking out to Lake Michigan.

Baileys Harbor Range Light

School House or Lighthouse? Note the bright light in the cupola. This is one part of what is known as a Range Light. This part of the light is back in the woods and the other part is is near a harbor. When a ship wants to enter the harbor safely, the mariner lines up […]

Cana Island Light

You can visit a seaside resort in the Midwest by going to Lake Michigan and the best place to experience it is Door County in Wisconsin. The Cana Island Lighthouse shown above is near Baileys Harbor on the Lake Michigan side of the Door County peninsula. The area is full of many of these historic […]

Eagle Bluff Light

Eagle Bluff Lighthouse is one of many lighthouses in Door County. This lighthouse overlooks Green Bay and is near Fishcreek, WI. Door County is a peninsula that extends into northern Lake Michigan and is a mixture of pastoral farmland surrounded seaside villages.

Artist’s Shop

Here is an artist’s shop in Door County, Wisconsin. This is a old farm where the owner displays various crafts in various buildings that were once used of agriculture. The whole county is like this with very creative uses for buildings.
