Hello and welcome to the new Michigan Landscape Photography website and blog. This is a parallel site to my original website and photo business, Iowa Landscape Photography, which has a blog if its own. My Iowa website contains photos from all over the Midwest. This website will feature Michigan photos only.
This photo was taken on Thumb Lake in Charlevoix County. I picked this location off of a map, purely on a hopeful whim, drove there in the dark and waited for sunrise, praying I would see something worthwhile once the sun rose.
I wasn’t disappointed. We only checked one part of the lake, but there was a great deal of photo opportunities. This particular image caught my attention because of the lone leaf on the fence rail. I did not “pose” this shot, the leaf was there on its own. Having the lake and autumn reflections showing soft in the background, yet still clearly recognizable, helps make this shot.
So, relax and peruse the site, make comments, and so on. Hope you enjoy it. 🙂
