Here are a few photos from yesterday’s mountain hike on Miyajima (Hiroshima, Japan).
At this time of year, portions of my garden are overrun with borage. The bees ADORE it, so I tend to just let it grow even when it gets in the way of other things. The flower clusters hang down, so today I decided to try for a different view.
The clouds over Lake Michigan were gorgeous yesterday. Then in the evening a storm started to come in and a bird happened to fly into frame right as I was taking a picture.
Only the sky half of this picture is nature but I wasn’t sure where else to put it. Went on a family vacation for a convention this past weekend and got to watch the sunrise from floor 5 of a parking garage three days in a row. It was exhausting, but lovely.
The American Falls, the Bridal Falls and the river from the top of the Skylon Tower
Horseshoe Falls from the top of the tower
The sunset over the lake was amazing yesterday. Here are a few favorite pictures:
I am very excited about that last one because I found out if I hold my phone in landscape mode and take a vertical panorama, I can get a wallpaper-sized picture with way more clouds than would have been able to fit if I just took a portrait shaped photo.
So I LOVE waterfalls and for my birthday, I went up to Marinette County and visited some waterfalls. They claim to be the waterfall capital of Wisconsin. There are apparently 14 waterfalls. I only visited 5.
Long Slide Falls
12 Foot Falls
8 Foot Falls
Ooh, lovely! I haven’t been up there to see those yet. The ones up around Superior and along the Minnesota side of Lake Superior are definitely worth a road trip, if you’re looking for more.
Seven Bridges Road in Duluth. Beautiful waterfalls. (and yes, there are seven bridges. )
Happy Internation Photography Day. To celebrate, here are some MACRO shots.
An Acorn cap for scale.
I like how the color didn’t fully develop Wonder why?
Water drop reflections. Classic.
Ok, so this one has a critter in it. But I think we can let it pass just this once.
I am not sure what these are. But I love the texture.
These I know. They are called Bleeding Hearts for obvious reasons. My mom planted them and they still pop up every year.
Nature on the small.
I have always enjoyed macro photography.
For the water drops, were you lucky or did you cheat and mist the flowers?
Ha ha. No. I live in New England. It will rain at some point, like it or not.
But I will admit, sometimes a good hose sprinkling is not unwelcome.
I’m busy tagging this year’s photos in Lightroom so y’all gonna get some pics
From January, when it would not stop raining here, a field of tiny vivid brown mushrooms growing up through some mulch
Also apparently tagging some old pics. Here’s a nice view of San Francisco Bay taken in 2005 from my kitchen. My view these days isn’t quite this good but can’t complain!
