October 17, 2018 brought impressively strong winds to Pictured Rock National Lakeshore…so strong, in fact, that I was able to capture this image of the spray of Bridal Veil Falls blowing backward into the woods above it. When the winds and waves are strong, I am usually out there with my camera, capturing the dynamic majesty of our ever-changing Lake Superior!
When I came upon this scene at Sand Hills Lighthouse, located near Ahmeek, Michigan, on Lake Superior, I knew it would make a beautiful image. A background peek of Lake Superior accents the old building and boat. A tweak with editing tools helped create just the nostalgic mood I was looking for. This image was accepted into ArtPrize 2017, in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
This spectacular maple tree never disappoints! It’s located along the Curley Lewis Highway between M-123 and Bay Mills in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. I used some creative editing to emphasize the overcast skies in contrast to the tree’s blazing ruddy colors. I plan to do more of this type of photo editing in the future, as I find it a new creative outlet for my photography. I hope you, the viewer, will like it!
