6:30 am, 4 degrees F. Headed out on a Winter hike with a friend in Pinckney, Michigan. We quickly adjusted to the early morning temps as the sun came over the horizon. It afforded some beautiful, low-angled light to paint the landscape with.

Ever feel like you just want to capture everything in the frame? I just love big skies and sometimes the camera just doesn’t seem “big” enough or the lens “wide” enough. This particular sunset shot showcases Michigan’s rural back-country setting in Winter.
After seeing the color brown return to Southeast Michigan after a mid-winter warmup, we are finally under a blanket (albeit a thin one) of snow. Took the opportunity to get out and grab a few shots. This one in particular was taken at one of my favorite places to shoot, Hidden Lake Gardens in Tipton, MI. The snow really started to come down making it a challenge to keep flakes off the lens long enough to get my shots.
A recent trip to the gardens revealed some new scenery to me on a cold and blustery day. This weather tends to keep people indoors and creates a quiet and undisturbed world that I’m more than happy to explore.

The creative juices are starting to flow and the moody allure of late Autumn/Winter is upon us. My favorite time of the year to photograph. One of my favorite subjects is trees. They seem to have a personality and one can only imagine what stories they would tell if they could.
