Kiss of Sunlight

I love the textures in this image.  The grass in the foreground, the reflected clouds and the sunlight capping it off at the top.  Also, the shape of the clouds gives the illusion of depth to the center of the image, making it seem almost three dimensional.

Time By the Lake

I recently spent a couple days at a northern Minnesota lake doing a bit of fishing and, of course, a bit of photography.  There’s something about early morning and late afternoon light on water that is hard to resist.  Especially when the water is smooth and the clouds contribute to the composition.

Down to the Lake

At the end of the road is the boat launch, will have to return on a better day with a boat and fishing rod.

Reflections On A Lake

Water.  It’s life giving, a retreat, a place to float under the sun, a place to fish and so much more.  And, at times, it can be a mirror to reflect land and sky.  Most of my life has been spent living on the shore of a lake, near a creek or river or close enough to be impacted by its presence.  I have seen water in its various forms throughout the seasons.  I am at home near water.  When the surface of water is calm, it gives the viewer a chance to look down into the sky, rather than up, it’s like a trip through the looking glass.
