American Beauty
Bird photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

This male American Goldfinch was kind enough to pose for a portrait shot. This is an image I found in my archive; something I took a few years ago. It must of gotten lost in the shuffle.

Larger Light Looming
Full Moon photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

As powerful as the Kewaunee, Wisconsin lighthouse lamp may be, it is no match for the power and majesty of the full moon of March 27, 2013.

I was pleasantly surprised at how well this image turned out; at how clearly the Fresnel lens of the lighthouse can be seen. The surprising part…this photo was taken from the shore. Anyone familiar with the Kewaunee lighthouse knows the lighthouse sits at the end of a very long pier that extends 750 feet from shore.

To get this image I used a 300mm lens with a 2X teleconverter (effectively doubling the reach of the lens). It is simply luck that the focus was as sharp as it is since I had to focus manually. (A number of other shots that night were not so sharp.) Under low light conditions, particularly with the teleconverter, the camera’s auto-focus doesn’t work.

Normally, without the brightness of the full moon behind it, the lighthouse lamp would show up as a big, bright white blob.

Early Adoration
Child portrait photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

At this stage, it’s hard to gain and keep their attention. I was able to captivate her…and she captivated me…for this brief moment.

This image of our newest grandchild was snapped on a recent, holiday weekend visit.

At this age, there’s not a lot of going on. She’s just beginning to notice activity around her, just beginning to smile.

Bright Idea
Flower photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

This azalea was one of the more colorful and prolific bloomers in my wife’s flower bed this year.

I enjoy getting a close up view of flowers (and other things) to see the details that we often don’t notice in a normal view.

You can get an even closer view by clicking on the photo.

Garden Torches
Flower photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

In a sea of red and yellow tulips, these orange toned specimens stood out. The color reminded me of flames – like garden torches.

These beauties were found in Manitowoc’s West of the Lake Gardens. The garden delayed their season opening by a couple of weeks due to the weather.

Bride and Bridesmaids
Flower photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

Sometimes, it’s the simple beauty that most easily captures me. Pleasing colors. Interesting shapes. A bit of texture. Uncommon perspective.

I found this collection of flowers while on another photographic mission. I was out early one morning to snap some photos of a couple of tall ships that were docked in the Kewaunee harbor. I parked my car in a lot near by and started working. At some point, I looked back and noticed a beautiful flower garden surrounding a nearby home. These flowers – the white one, in particular – immediately caught my eye.

I took quite a few photos of the ships, but this one may be my favorite of the morning.

Red Vine
Nature photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

On a hike though Wisconsin woodlands, the deep red color of the leaves on this vine, draped across a moss covered rock, caught my eye.

This was on a trip to photograph waterfalls in Marinette County. On a very difficult, rocky trail to a viewing spot, I noticed the contrasting color. Even though I was there for the waterfall, I couldn’t resist a quick capture.

Wilderness Waterway
Waterfall landscape photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

This is a panoramic view of Horseshoe Falls in Marinette County, Wisconsin. This was one of my favorite falls out of the many we visited in Marinette County last weekend. I found the setting and the water swirling in and out of view very appealing.

This is a large image that needs to be viewed large to be appreciated. If you click on the photo, it will open a full screen version.

I combined five separate shots, holding my camera in “portrait” orientation to create this wide view. Though you can’t tell it from this image, it was a cloudy, rainy day. (I don’t think it was raining at this moment.)

There are 14 waterfalls in Marinette County. We didn’t have time to visit them all, because I can spend a lot of time at each one, trying to find all the angles, changing lenses and experimenting with a variety of camera settings. We visited seven of the 14. Most of them were better than I was hoping for, based on the photos I’d seen on the web or in brochures.

Sedum Bumbler
Macro insect photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

This time of year, the pollinators are busy in my wife’s flower beds. This is a bumble bee browsing through the sedum flowers.

This is a comparatively small image because I cropped in, to enlarge the bee to a size where you can see some of the detail. I don’t own a true “macro” lens, so I make my 16-55mm lens do the heavy lifting.

The image is larger than you see here, but if you click the photo a larger version will open.

Happy Dance
Nature photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

“To dance is to be out of yourself. Larger, more beautiful, more powerful. This is power, it is glory on earth and it is yours for the taking” ― Agnes De Mille

It seems there’s one in every bunch. While it’s siblings seem intent on foraging for food, the guy in the middle is bustin’ a move.

This Canada Goose and her goslings were found at Barkhausen Waterfowl Preserve, located along the west shore of the Bay of Green Bay.

Girl In the Light
Child portrait photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

Every now and then, the light works with you. This young girls was holding the rail, advancing up some steps in a dimly lit area. At this particular spot a gentle light fell across her face.

This is one of our grandchildren on a trip to the Children’s Museum. For the most part, light was a problem. Museums are usually a challenge because they tend to have low lighting. It’s more of a challenge when you have a moving target. In this particular shot, if you look close you’ll notice a “grainy” quality to the image…due to the low light conditions.

Morning Dance On the Beach
Sunrise photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

The waves seemed to be dancing with delight on the western shore of Lake Michigan as the Kewaunee, WI lighthouse and pier greet the new day.

As you can see, I had excellent conditions to try this type of image. Normally, at sunrise, the overwhelming brightness of the sun has a tendency to turn everything in the foreground into a silhouette. On this morning, there was some serious haze in the sky and clouds that blocked the harsh light and gave me enough to work with. The lake was a little rougher than it usually is at sunrise giving me the challenge of capturing a wave splashing on the shore.

There is plenty to like in this scene. The calming color of the sky, the landmark lighthouse with some fishermen on the pier, the texture of choppy water, the refreshing wave splash and reflection of light on the beach. This will be one of my favorites for the year.
