Experimenting today with panoramas. This shot is composed from 10 photos shot vertically. Each shot overlapped about 30 percent. I stitched them together in Lightroom.
Up at what my friend Mel calls “O dark early,” to travel to the Leelanau Peninsula to take some photos. I wanted to be there before sunrise, which was about 7:15 a.m. So, I was up at 3:40 a.m. and out the door by 4:00 a.m. It was 3 degrees when I set up my tripod in a field overlooking Glen Lake. I was rewarded with this photo. Not a bad start to the day.
From there, I headed to Glen Haven to walk along the shore of Sleeping Bear Bay to the point. But first, I stopped to take a couple of photos along D.H. Day Farm Road.

Next to Shalda Creek where it flows into Good Harbor Bay.
Along M-72, on my way to Traverse City, I spotted these fruit trees and had to stop.
The sun finally came out yesterday after over a week of gloomy weather. The gray blanket broke up in to white, puffy clouds that moved quickly across the sky. I took the opportunity to visit Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park with my tripod and filters to take some long exposure shots.
My photo post titled “First Light, First Snow: Exploring the New Snow at Dawn,” was selected as a featured post on Exposure.co. It has been viewed over 880 times and has 177 “Enjoys.”
After many years hosted on Posterous.com, I have moved the blog to WordPress. The Posterous.com site, which was so convenient, has been taken down by its new owners. If you are listening former Posterous developers and workers, thank you for coming up with a great site that prompted me to begin this site where I can keep track of, and share, my Internet discoveries.
