Collection In the Clearing
Wildflower photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

Hiking through the woods of northwest Missouri, I came across a clearing with a delightful arrangement of wildflowers.

When I’m photographing flowers I normally move in closer and focus on a particular bloom or two. I snapped some of those images too, of course. However, for this collection, I thought a more distant perspective was worthwhile; where you can see them in their natural state, growing wild and free among the other native grasses and plants .

You can view them in much greater detail by clicking on the photograph.

Tree Hugger
Butterfly photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

I love macro photography because it brings things that are small, and often missed, closeup and in sharp focus. It reveals the detail that we rarely have the opportunity to observe and enjoy.

This small butterfly was one of several I found mingling around the base of a tree in the woods of Missouri. It seemed like a gathering of old friends. Unfortunately, I was’t able to get a good shot of the group’s activity because, at the base of the tree, there was a good deal of tall grass that shielded my view. This momentary loner was kind enough to sit still long enough for me to snap its image.

By the way, the image you see here was flipped 180-degrees. When I snapped it, the butterfly was facing downward. I thought it seemed more natural and a little easier on the eyes to have it positioned upward.

There is much more detail to be seen in the larger version. To see it, simply click on the photo.

Colorful Kewaunee Fourth
Fireworks photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

A crowd of wide-eyed spectators watch the Fourth of July fireworks show from Selner Beach in Kewaunee, Wisconsin. Along with the booming colors the crowd was serenaded by the gentle, rhythmic sound of Lake Michigan waves on the shore.

I enjoy photographing fireworks. I particularly enjoy capturing the fine detail. Unfortunately, you have to really zoom in to see the kind of detail I’m talking about. Fortunately, with the large megapixels of today’s cameras, you can see some amazing detail when you enlarge the image. You won’t be able to see that kind of detail in this image, but you can view a larger version to get a better, overall view by clicking on the photo.

Blooming in Black & White
Monochrome fireworks photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

I love fireworks. The climbing rockets, bursting into bright, streaming displays of color and light are an irresistible enticement for my photographic efforts.

I decided to try something unusual with this one. The shape of the bursts reminded me of flowers blooming. Rather than emphasize the color, I removed all color to accentuate the shape.

I wasn’t sure I’d like it without the color, but the more I look at it, the more it appeals to me. I really like the firework’s reflection in the water.

Hello Wild Yellow
Wildflower photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

This yellow wildflower found a place in a woodland clearing to enjoy the warm, afternoon sun.

I usually try to offer some info on the flowers I post – at least the name of the flower. In this case, I don’t know what this one is called. I spent a good deal of time searching the web and a wildflower field guide but couldn’t come up with a good match. If you know, definitively, what this flower is, let me know. I photographed this bloom on a trail in northeast Wisconsin.

You can get a larger, more detailed view of this flower by clicking on the photo.

Dark Damsel
Macro nature photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

The dainty damselfly is a predator by nature. Damselflies catch and eat flies, mosquitoes, and other small insects. Often they hover among grasses and low vegetation, picking prey off stems and leaves with their spiny legs.

I think the best part of this image is the detailed pattern and color in the wings. I also like the tiny spines on the legs.

This dark damsel paused just long enough for me to catch a good photo. They tend to zip to and fro and make focusing a challenge. I saw this one on a walk through some woods in Missouri. I had to shoot through the leaves to grab this image. I would have preferred the leaf in the foreground wasn’t there so you could see the structure of all the legs, but sometimes you have to take what you can get.

To enjoy the details available in this image, click on the photo to view the larger version.

Burst of Elegance
Fireworks photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

The patterns and colors of fireworks bursts can create their own fine art that is beautiful, interesting and elegant.

I know I enjoy fireworks more than most – or at least, photos of fireworks. It’s the rich colors and unpredictable burst patterns, contrasting with the dark background, that I find very appealing. This is a good example of a fireworks image that captivates my attention. Am I the only one?

Sunny Side Up
Flower photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

I put the macro mojo to work on this flower photo. It’s a Gerbera Daisy I picked up from a local florist…just to photograph it.

Gerbera daisies are big, bold and beautiful. They are nearly perfect, so much so, they’ll make you wonder if they’re artificial. Geberas bloom in nearly every color (except true blues and purples) on long, thick, sturdy stems. You can expect them to last a week or more in the vase, making them a favorite of flower arrangers and home decorators.

Pure Algoma
Lighthouse photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

The Algoma lighthouse and pier present a welcome sight to shore-side visitors and, more important, the watercraft entering and departing the small Lake Michigan harbor.

This image doesn’t contain the dramatic sunrise elements usually seen in my photos of the Algoma lighthouse. I was there at the break of dawn, hoping for a dramatic sunrise, but it never materialized. Still I like this photo for the clear, clean feel of the blue water and sky…with a hint of sunrise pink on the horizon.

Beachside Spectacular
Fireworks photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

One of the best vantage points for the 4th of July fireworks display in Kewaunee, Wisconsin is a blanket or comfortable chair on the beach. Kewaunee is located on the western shore of Lake Michigan.

I’ve photographed the fireworks in Kewaunee many times, but I usually do so from a spot on the harbor. I like capturing the reflection of the firework’s colors on the water’s surface. (Check some of the previous Kewaunee fireworks posts on this site here: http://popsdigital.com/?s=kewaunee%2C+Fireworks) This year, I decided to try a different location, joining the spectators on the beach.

The fireworks are discharged from the pier that stretches out into the lake.

Grass Hopper
Wildlife photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

This little rascal was very alert, keeping an eye on me while I kept my camera focused on him.

I photographed this wild bunny on a recent trip to Missouri. I was strolling around in the early morning and found out I wasn’t the only one up early. He looks steady here, but he only stood still for a moment before scurrying off to the woods.

Glorious Spring

That God once loved a garden we learn in Holy writ.
And seeing gardens in the Spring I well can credit it.
~Winifred Mary Letts

I would love to be able to boast that I took this photo from a flowerbed in our yard. This stunning display is another scene from West of the Lake Gardens in Manitowoc, Wisconsin.

After the long, hard winter, these kind of displays of spring beauty provides healing therapy for the soul.
