This image was taken in St. Ignace Mi, looking out onto Lake Huron. I found these large boulders to be really lovely, and wanted to photograph them with the water and sky. The shape and size of the greenery in with the huge rocks really attracted me to this spot. I didn't feel that partially blocking the view detracted from the scene, but rather it added to it.
I took this image in the late afternoon so quite a bit of shadow is on the boulders, but a tiny bit of light peeks through just enough to illuminate it's beauty. Enjoy!

As you can see by the rows of what used to be a crop of some kind, that this must still be a working farm, so I assume this barn is still in use. I would sure love to get a look inside, and see what beautiful old treasures it might hold! I guess that may never happen, so I suppose that will be left up to my imagination!

The next two I did in monochrome, the first of those in a simple black and white, the next with a slightly more dramatic look, and tone.
Just for fun, which one do you like best?

The area where I took this image is my favorite place to go when it's really hot outside. As you can see from the slight shadows there is some amount of shade from the sun here! The trees are amazing, all lined up in a row, fantastic root formations all around, and sporting brilliant green leaves.
The water pool itself has such a cooling affect on the mind with its awesome shade of blue! Last but not least are the orange painted walls that have water continuously flowing down them. If you're ever in the area this is a must see, but I suggest doing it on a day that isn't 106 degrees outside!

As the winter months are quite long I may also be trying to do some experimenting with different types of photography. I guess we'll see how it all plays out as the season progresses, but for now I'm just anxious for those little white flakes to start falling from the sky!
