I am in the process of selling my current cameras and lenses. At the moment I have two lenses remaining, my 10-24mm and a 100mm macro. Until I purchase my new gear, I am challenged with using these two lenses for my Canon 5D Mk4 and Canon 5D S. This image was taken using the Canon 100mm 2.8 macro. It takes patience to get the right balance of depth of field and stillness of the subject. Also, the bees don’t pose. I choose a single blossom and waited till a bee stopped by. I realize it is not perfectly focused, but I will keep trying.
I’ve been trying to cross this off my photography bucket list for some time now. Although conditions weren’t the best from this location, it was a good practice opportunity for me.

It was one of those mornings, staring at the surroundings, visualizing possibilities…
All is quiet on this northern Minnesota field.

Due to having injured my back pushing my car out of a frozen divot, I have not been out shooting much lately. But that doesn’t mean I can’t find something to do, which includes checking my attic windows for frost patterns. Every year the patterns are a bit different and I enjoy exploring, capturing and tweaking the best of them.
My back is finally improving and soon I expect to be outdoors searching for new winter compositions.

While keeping you distracted for the last two weeks I’ve had time to create some new work. On November 10th, Split Rock Lighthouse was lit to commemorate the 43rd anniversary of the sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald in Lake Superior, plus remembering all the lives lost on the lake over the years. As part of the ceremony the light is lit for a few hours in the evening.
