Winter River View in Michigan

Today when I was traveling around a little North from where I live I came across some wonderful conditions again for photography.  Taking some time to admire the beauty, I thought I would share this image with my blog readers as it to me was worth it.

Lake Effect Snow: Trapped on the Corner of Winter Street & Cabin Fever

Lake effect snow began falling today in Southwest Michigan.  It started last night, but picked up early this morning.  It tends to bring about a claustrophobic sensation in me every time I experience heavy snow fall.  I do not know why.  Perhaps it is deep rooted in the sub-conscious fueled…

Walking Through January

January is a time when the snow leaves you surrounded by a blanket of white.  Footprints across the blanket leaves a trace like soft frosting on cake. Such is the time when walking in January on a cold winter day. Misery is easy, happiness you have to work at.  It…

Taking in a Sunset

Sometimes when you are driving, you have to reach over for your camera and snap a photo.  I know that is how it goes with me as a photographer.  I love to keep a camera handy, as you never know when life is going to show you something that makes…
