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 […]

Mackinac Bridge

Driving across this bridge is not for the fainthearted. The bridge is over 26,000 feet long and if going, it is best to go to the bridge website for a weather report as the deck will sway in high wind. Since the deck is 200 ft above water chances for high wind are pretty good. […]

Japanese Garden

A scenic overlook at the Missouri Botanical Garden. This is one of the great attractions in the St. Louis area. The Missouri Botanical Garden opened to the public in 1859 and began to grow in the European tradition of horticultural display combined with education and the search for new knowledge. Today, 158 years after opening, […]

Fredrickson’s Bait Shop

Hidden on Star Lake is this little Bait Shop. Actually it is a little museum  commemorating Edith and Hazel Fredrickson, two elderly sisters whom sat in their bait shop on the shore of this lake for over 70 years selling worms and minnows. These ladies were much celebrated as, year after year, hundreds upon hundreds […]

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.

Red Boathouse

Here is a small boathouse on Lake Tomahawk in Minocqua, Wisconsin. Lake Tomahawk is part of a chain of lakes in what is known as the Lakeland area. The lakes are connected by a series of channels that allow you to visit neighbors by boat or tie-up in Downtown Minocqua for some shopping. Click here […]

The Beacons Boathouse

This massive boathouse on Lake Minocqua belongs to The Beacons resort. The boathouse was built in 1908 and can be seen from the town of Minocqua and the Bearskin trail. This lake is filled with the classic structures with this as the “crown jewel.”

Boathouse

This is one of my first photos using HDR. The photo was taken handheld on a walking trail along lake Kawaguesaga in Minocqua, Wisconsin. My wife and I regularly walk this trail with our Basset Hounds during the summers. The boathouses along the lakes add to the scenic nature of the area. The photo was […]

View from Devil’s Pool

This is a view from the deck of Devil’s Pool restaurant at Big Cedar Lodge. Big Cedar is such an interesting place that you could not run out of things to photograph. It is an old estate with beautiful buildings and interesting architecture, restaurants, golf courses and more!
