Seidman Park is one of my go-to places for local photography. Yesterday, I chose to go small, pulling my macro extender out of my bag to get close up shots of wildflowers and fungi. I don’t shoot macro very often and definitely need the practice.
Friday’s lunar eclipse, the longest of the year, occurred before the moon rose in North America, but its effects could still be seen as the Blood Moon rose above Reeds Lake. By Saturday morning, the moon was washed of its blood-red coloring and brought a glow to the pre-dawn fog. (Click on an image to see it full-size.)
The morning sky was a beautiful pastel as it illuminated the foggy landscape.
I spent this past week in Glen Arbor, Michigan, vacationing with my family. Staying in Glen Arbor had a couple of advantages for my photography. Without having to make a three hour drive to be in position before sunrise, I was able to “sleep in” until 5:00 a.m. each day. Then, I also had the pleasure of shooting sunsets, something I can’t do on my day trips to the peninsula.
