“Winds on Waters Deep”

In my autumn travels in the often hurried and mad search for color I came upon this area of a large lake. I had to stop the car quite a ways off and walk down a country road to be able to get in a few shots.
The whole area is miles and miles of lake, some quite wide and deep, other areas becoming more narrow like a river mouth.
I loved this section here because of the beautiful tall grasses that line the shoreline, and the starting of autumnal color. It happened to be quite a windy day which isn’t my favorite photography weather, but it did lend itself nicely to the movement of the grasses!
I hope to be able to locate this place again in the wintertime. I imagine the lake will be beautiful frozen over with ice, and the trees laden with snow!

Lovely autumn lakeside scene!

“When Fall Was Young”

The beauty of early autumn along the shores of lake Michigan.
The beauty of autumn when it first begins! This tree stands short, and strong in the heavy winds along Lake Michigan. Fall color has just begun in that area at the time, but if you love trees you’ll find the beauty in them no matter what time of year! Call me a Tree Lover! 😉

“Out in the Country”

The beauty of living in the northern part of Michigan. Farms are everywhere. Plenty of open land, orchards and wonderful woodlands are around every bend.
Lake Michigan isn’t far away, and in this case can even be seen in the left, above the trees.
Early autumn changes had begun at the time this was taken, but the wonderful Michigan weather of late September was still in the air!
This was the time when pumpkins and apples were being harvested. Farmers were preparing their farms for the winter season ahead.
For me though, I was able to look out in wonder of the beauty around me, and of the people who live in this community, of close knit, hard working people of the land!

“Ann Arbor in Mural”

“Ann Arbor in Mural”

A wonderful mural of areas of the city of Ann Arbor Michigan. Painted on a concrete wall that goes under and on either side of a railroad bridge.
Fall color was at it’s peak at the time, so you can see some golden foliage above the railroad also.
I don’t know the artist, I should try to find out.
That will be my next task! 🙂

“Caught in a Swirl”

This image is a bit different from my usual. I’m trying out a new type of image editing software for a new company. 

All of my previous abstract images were done completely in camera. This one is different. I took a lovely autumn path, and gave it the look of being caught up in a complete swirl. A swirl of autumn! I’d be interested in hearing what you think. Image
