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.

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.

You're So Vain
Flower photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

These exquisite orchids were photographed at an indoor, botanical garden. Sorry, I didn’t note the variety.

When it comes to orchids, there is a lot of variety. There are over 28,000 species in the Orchidaceae family. Just do a search for orchid images and you’ll get an idea of the many beautiful, unusual, amazing and sometimes silly varieties.

Winging It
Aviation photography by Bill Pevlor of http://www.PopsDigital.com

Something you don’t see every day…unless you’re talking about an airshow.

This is the high-flying duo of Gene Soucy (pilot) and Teresa Stokes (wing walker) that flew to the delight and amazement of airshow spectators on Saturday, August 3, 2013.

Though there are airshows every year in the area I live in, I’d never been to an one with my camera. I decided this would be the year. Amazing doesn’t begin to describe the experience. I was blessed to be there on a perfect day, weather wise, and was able to snap a number of great photos.

Dawn’s Early Flight
Lighthouse sunrise photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

On the morning I took this photo, it was a calm and slowly brightening scene. I was focused on capturing the color in the clouds behind the lighthouse.

A large number of seagulls were resting on the pier running perpendicular to the lighthouse, apparently having spent the night there.

For no particular reason, they began to take off and I simply clicked the shutter several times as they inserted themselves into the scene.

In Praise of Yellow
Flower photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

On a recent hike through the woods, I was delighted to find a variety of wildflowers. These are some of my favorites from that day.

The one flower seems to be raising a hand in praise of the creator. (Or, maybe just hoping to get noticed.)

Rough Opening
Lighthouse sunrise photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

Lake Michigan offered a turbulent scene as the waves rolled into the western shore past the Kewaunee, WI lighthouse and pier just after sunrise.

This was taken on an October morning in 2016. Occasionally I try a different perspective, like this view, framed by the trees on the shore.

This red rose evokes an entirely different feeling when presented in a monochrome tone.

This started as a color image and I spent a lot of time trying to get this just right. I like it better than the image I started with.
