The title sums it up... shot today at Asylum Lake.
A few days ago in the Allegan Forest - this location continues to intrigue me, though most of the trees (not shown) have been chopped down. I still like the pines in the snow.
I posted a photo of this place a few winter's ago, taken with an old Argus TLR. I like the sharper image from a modern camera, though still shot on film.
The 2017 Signature Gallery opens on Friday, December 1!
This will mark Signature's 38th season gallery - it truly is a Kalamazoo tradition.
I'm participating in the gallery this year and will have a large assortment of framed prints, matted prints and photo note cards. Several of my new botanical images will be on display this year, as well as landscapes and close ups. The gallery is open through December 27th - if you are in the Kalamazoo area, stop on in.
Here are two of my photos with a fantastic Eric Joseph drinking horn:
A few autumn leaves, underfoot and in sun beam:
I bought this plant at a greenhouse back in April. The plant was in full bloom then and I enjoyed photographing it. It stopped blooming and I put it outside for the summer - and with October it's again pushing out the flowers. The amount of daylight is about equivalent in April and October - maybe its a photoperiodism thing...
When I bought the plant it was labelled "Greenhouse Mum" - a chrysanthemum I suppose. Pixel shift mode, sixty five stacked images combined in Zerene stacker.
Walking through a peaceful place yesterday - fall colors are just starting to appear this warm autumn.
A couple of studio shots of flowers - first, a Zinnia, still going strong even in mid October (33 stacked images):
Second, a traditional Autum flower - a purple mum (48 stacked images):
