Stormy Morning

A fall morning on Lake Michigan. This is an area near Cave Point County Park in Door County. The changing weather in the fall can make for dramatic photos. This photo was processed by Aurora HDR which allows for the various tones and colors to come through.

Gordon Lodge Pier

One of many iconic scenes in Door County. This is a pier at the entrance of North Bay near Baileys Harbor. The a beautiful fall day and sunset light gives a nice effect.

Range Light

This is not a school house and not a lighthouse. It is what is known as a “range light.” There are two lights, one at each end of the walkway in the photo. The other light (not shown in this photo) is near Baileys Harbor and when ships lineup the two lights, they have found […]

Morning in Door County

A quiet morning on Lake Michigan. This bay is shallow so there is limited boat traffic and sitting on the dock watching the sunrise is a must for this area. Also this is a bay which keeps the waves down. This is a three shot HDR photo taken on a tripod. See my HDR tutorial […]

Sunset in the Northwoods

One of my favorite places to visit is the Northwoods of Wisconsin. This is an area in northern Wisconsin containing thousands of lakes surrounded by forests. This setting coupled with extended sunrises, sunsets and calls of the Loons makes this an ideal place to getaway and relax. Here is a dock on Fishtrap Lake new […]

Lumberjack Steam Train

In Laona Wisconsin, you will find the Lumberjack Steam Train. This actual steam train will take you back in time to an actual logging camp in Northern Wisconsin. This is the back-end of the train disappearing into the woods.

Wilson’s Restaurant

Just around the corner from the Moravia Street Cottage mentioned in the previous post is Ephraim’s ¬†iconic Wilson’s Restaurant in Door County. Famous for their ice cream, this is a great place to stop for lunch, desert or both! Then, down the road is Al Johnson’s Restaurant where they have live goats on the roof […]

Northwoods Eagles

As mentioned in my previous post, if you missed the Eagles in St. Louis (Alton area), travel up to Wisconsin and catch-up with them there. Studies show that most of them live in Vilas and Oneida counties, many on Lake Minocqua. This photo was taken on the grounds of The Pointe Hotel and Suites where […]

Road to Northport

One of the keys to better photography is to go back multiple times. This is a scene I discovered in 2014 on my first visit to Door County, Wisconsin. This turns out to be a very popular view for photographers and artists to capture. There are always people in the area taking photos.¬†My first visit […]

Road to Star Lake

The upper Midwest can provide some of the most spectacular fall colors and scenic drives. This is a road along Star Lake headed towards Boulder Junction, Wisconsin, an area that includes Manitowish Waters and Minocqua, an island town. Spending a few days here in early October is well worth the trip!
