Rehabilitation Rising
Lighthouse Sunrise photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

The Kewaunee, WI lighthouse has a different look lately. It is undergoing renovation, as evidenced by the scaffolding surrounding the structure.

This was a photo taken just after sunrise from the beach at Selner Park, on the western shore of Lake Michigan. I’d heard they were sprucing up the lighthouse and decided I needed to get a photo while the work was in progress.

If you look closely, you can see a small fishing boat leaving the harbor, just visible off the end of the pier, where the sun is reflecting on the water.

This photo has a lot of detail that can be viewed better by clicking on the photo.

Pauper's Throne
Butterfly photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

This unlikely king takes a rather stately stance on an even more unlikely throne. This brown butterfly was photographed at the edge of our backyard in rural N.E. Wisconsin.

I spent a good deal of time looking for a similar butterfly on Google. I’m sure I looked through thousands of images, but was never able to find another that looked just like it. Consequently, I have no idea what kind of butterfly it was.

You can get a closer look by simply clicking on the image.

Brooding Virtue
Monochrome Flower photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

This is a white tulip. By converting it to a monochrome image, it becomes a moody collection of light and shadow, texture and form.

I’ve been working on tulip images that I shot a couple years ago. This was a nice macro shot of a white, tulip bloom. It was a nice image, in color, but I thought it became a much more interesting image in monochromatic form.

You can view more of the finer detail by clicking on the photo.

Brazenly Delicate.
Flower photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

This red tulip seemed to be taking a bold stand among another group of purple and white tulips. This is another flower I captured a couple of years ago at the annual Tulip Festival held in Pella, Iowa.

Deep red colors, like this tulip, can be a challenge for photographers because most cameras have a tendency to over-saturate the red and the image will loose all it’s detail; it can turn out looking like one big blob of red, with no texture or definition. Most of my post processing on this image was working to control the red.

You can easily view a larger, more detailed version of this image by clicking on the photo.

Splash of April Color
Flower photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

The tulip’s vivid colors and endless varieties are a most welcome sight of springtime in these parts. This cluster of beauty was photographed a couple of years ago during the Tulip Festival in Pella, IA.

I’ve had a bunch of tulips from the festival on my computer patiently waiting to be processed. With a bit of warmer weather and the prospect of blooming flowers on the horizon, I was reminded of the photo treasures I had yet to process and post. I’ll have to get to more of them in the future.

Still playing around with creating video/slideshow with m images. Let me know your thoughts. It's about 3.5 minutes long.

Sunrise Solo
Lighthouse Sunrise photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

A solitary seagull surveys the beauty of a Lake Michigan sunrise as it emerges beyond the Kewaunee, Wisconsin lighthouse and pier.

This is a scene from mid October, 2016. It was a rough morning on the lake. Of course, I was shooting from the shore, staying far enough away from the waves breaking on the beach to keep my equipment dry. The gull was a nice addition. It isn’t the only one in the sky. If you view the larger version of this, you’ll be able to see a few others nearer the lighthouse.

To view a larger, more detailed version, simply click on the photo.

The Bright Dark of Night
Monochrome Cityscape photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

In the deep dark of night, the city waterway reflects lights of life. This is a view along the Riverwalk in downtown Milwaukee, WI.

This is an image I captured a couple of years ago. A photography friend from the Milwaukee area took me to some great spots for some night photography. I was looking through some of the shots I took that night but never got around to processing. I thought this one was worth a little effort.

I had posted another image from this taken the same night from this same area, in color, awhile back. This one, in monochrome tones, has become my favorite of the two.

To get a better view of the fine detail in this image, click on the photo and a larger version will open.

Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory
Panorama Sunrise photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

Sometimes it is difficult to fit all of the beauty in one frame. This pre-sunrise view from the harbor of Algoma, Wisconsin, took a compilation of five separate images.

The travel site, Expedia, recently named Algoma as “Most Beautiful Town” in Wisconsin. I believe they must have been there on a day like this. In their words…

Of the most beautiful towns in Wisconsin, Algoma, the Park of Flowers, caught our eye. It’s tucked along the shores of Lake Michigan, boasting buildings and homes that are more than 100 years old. Stare out at the shimmery waters at Crescent Beach and catch sight of the red Algoma Pierhead Lighthouse, while meandering along the boardwalk. During your visit, slip into von Stiehl Winery, the state’s oldest licensed winery, which is located in a Civil War-era building, with a terrace overlooking the lake.

This scene was photographed on the same morning I photographed, “Serious Sunrise;” an image I posted earlier. You can view it, for comparison here: http://popsdigital.com/pops-photos/serious-sunrise/

This is one of those images that don’t display well in on a small page format. You should click on the image to view a wider, full-screen, panoramic version.
