Moose on the Gunflint Trail in MN. We found a marshy area that held moose and were lucky that whenever we went by it there was at least once moose in it. The bull we saw was a yearling, nothing with a little bigger rack developing. The photos with the dark background happened as the moose was in the shadows and the sun happened to light up the moose! Darkened the photo just a bit to help with the effect.
Recent trip around Lake Superior in MN and WI. One of my goals was to get a baby moose (see below) and the northern lights. No luck with the lights, but will go back sometime and try again. Lots of state parks in the MN section with many waterfalls. A very nice trip to take, but don't rush!
Coneflowers and water lilies. A couple of shots from the weekend. Was pretty bright before I got to shoot the water lilies. Photos are under exposed quite a bit to reduce glare on the flowers. Makes the water appear black - I kind of like it!
My favorite time of the year! I love the colors. These photos were taken in Langlade County, WI. The rest of the state seems to be a little behind them, so I am hoping to get two more weekends of fall color photography!
These fall photos were taken in or along the Pike River in Kenosha, WI.
November in Wisconsin. Earth tones of the oak woods and undergrowth. Also found some birches with some leaves that were still hanging on as winter gets ready to set in.
Just got back from a trip to Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge in NM. An awesome place to be. 52,000+ white geese and almost 100,000 ducks, mostly pintails. I have many more geese photos and dozens of photos of each species of duck that I posted here. Will be setting up a separate gallery page for Bosque in the near future. Check back.
Winter was not the greatest for photography around here this past season. Did spend some time looking for arctic birds.
Was driving back from IA to WI in pretty heavy fog. Just as I got to the Mississippi River the sun started to burn off the fog, so I stopped to take a couple pics.
Lake Tahoe is very photogenic. Didn't have the best of lighting while we were there, but you make the best of things. Spent a good deal of time in Cave Cove and Sand Harbor. Also enjoyed the lakes and waterfalls around Emerald Bay. I have posted the waterfall and cascade photos below.
Spent a couple days photographing the tufas at Mono Lake in California. Water levels were quite low. A good number of the tufas that were on land should be in the water. Also decided to try my hand at Milky Way photography from here.
As long as we were in the area, we drove along Tioga Pass in Yosemite. Also were treated to some nice lakes and mountains in the Virginia Lakes area.
We were fortunate to see several herds of wild horses while we were in Nevada.
Waterfalls and cascades near Lake Tahoe and the Virginia Lakes area in California.
