A beautiful foggy November morning in Michigan

Posted on November 14th, 2015

I woke up the other morning as the sun was rising to greet beautiful fog covering our backyard. I didn’t have the proper time for a photoshoot, but did grab my camera to snap a couple images from my window. Then after dropping off my youngest son at his school, I stopped at the park to breath in the glorious morning air.

I was quite bummed that responsibilities kept me from setting up for a proper photo shoot. Instead of simply shooting out my window, I would’ve loved to grab my camera and head over to the cemetery or the lake. I missed the best photographic opportunities during the time spent getting ready for school and work. Even still, I was grateful to look out the windows (of the house and then car) to take in the beauty with my eyes.

Don't mistake: if I could move to Hawaii, I would. I would miss waking up to a beautiful snowfall.


Late November Backyard Phone Photography at Dusk

Posted on November 30th, 2013

I've played football with my boys in the yard the last couple evenings. In spite of the cold, it's surprisingly fun.
Braving the winter weather has afforded me the opportunity to be outside to experience such beautiful skies as these images reveal. Each night, I paused the game for a moment and snapped these exposures with my phone in HDR mode. A few filter adjustments in Snapseed and Instagram for sharing.
Note the duck in the foreground of the shot (bottom) from the first night - he was a bonus. The second night, I took the reverse angle shot (top) from the bridge. I love how in both shots the texture of the snow that adds depth to the experience.
