Something Wicked in the Woods     nature photo by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

The tangle of roots from a fallen tree seemed like something wicked among the greenery of a Upper Michigan forest.

This seems a bit of an oddity among my usual selection of pretty flowers and glowing sunrises.  The curve of the dead, aging wood, in contrast with the new, green life around it caught my eye.

I debated whether to make it a monochrome image but decided the green wasn’t bright enough to hinder the mood.  And, again, I liked the contrast.

Meeting of the Ferns       nature photo by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

This is an interesting study in natural design and form. These are bracken ferns in the early stages of their season. I found these on a recent springtime walk through the woods.

Like a flower blooming, these ferns uncurl upward and spread their fronds. In a couple of weeks, they will cover the forest floor with lush, green foliage.

Messy Hands       macro nature by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

My old camera, a Kodak Easyshare DX7590, did an exceptional job with macro shots. I can spend hours crouched down by a flower bed, moving slowly, trying to be unnoticed while I position my camera as close as possible to any tiny creatures I can find. I was just a few inches from this bee when I snapped this photo.

I love seeing the normally, unseen details of God’s creation. For instance, in this image, I am fascinated by the bee’s wings, the pollen on the flower and bee’s legs, that little dongle thing protruding from the bee’s head, it’s eyes and the orange tipped spears of the cone flower.

Party Lights                  leaf photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

It’s the middle of winter and my last few posts have featured some pretty dreary tones. I thought it was time for some color so I did a little browsing and found this gem waiting on my hard drive since last spring.

These leaves, photographed in the woods of Northeast Wisconsin (near my home), were early spring sprouts; debuting in April. The way the sunlight illuminates them, it reminded me of colorful party lights strung though the trees.

Full Moon Flightpath      night photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

This full moon was settling behind the trees as a flock of birds (not bats) flew through the scene.

Because of the full moon, you’d naturally assume this photo was taken at night. In fact, it was taken at 7:06 am. Even more ironic – I was out that morning trying to catch a nice sunrise at Algoma. The sun didn’t cooperate, but while waiting for it, I noticed the full moon going down and focused my attention, and camera, there. As I was framing up the shot, a flock of sea gulls entered the frame…so, of course, I clicked.

Winter Enigma            winter landscape by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

Very cold temperatures and warmer Lake Michigan waters created an early morning fog that coated the area with a fluffy frost. The Kewaunee lighthouse stands shining bright in the background. Occasionally, billows of fog would mostly obscure the lighthouse from view – at least from the shore. I classify this as a sunrise photo, because it was taken right about sunrise, but the heavy cloud bank on the horizon kept the sun at bay for a good deal.

Sundown Bay          Sunrise photo by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

Some time ago my wife and I took a few days away in Door County, WI. On our first evening, we made our way to the shore of Green Bay to catch the sunset. The low clouds added a bit of drama to an, otherwise, calm day’s end.

Crooked Spine Pine - Freak of Nature        photo by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

This is a real tree. There has been no digital manipulation to its shape. (Wish I had a better camera when I took this shot.)

All the other trees around it are straight but, by some freak of nature, this one grew in a spiral like Jack's magic bean stalk. This tree is at Pottawatomie State Park, near Sturgeon Bay, WI.

Softly and Tenderly     flower photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

There is something about the delicate furl and opening of rose petals that draws the viewer in. Doesn’t this image make you want to get closer to smell its intoxicating fragrance?

This is a flower I found on a trip to Branson, MO a couple of years ago.  It was in a small flowerbed, next to the parking lot, at a motel we spent the night at.  You never know where you will find beauty to behold…and capture…so keep your camera close by.

Big City Serenity           night cityscape from Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

I was able to connect with a photographer friend on a recent trip to Milwaukee, WI. He graciously took me to a few locations for nighttime photography. I thought this one turned out well.

Along Milwaukee’s river walk, there are a number of downtown locations where a beautiful scene can be captured.

Sunshine on a Stalk       flower photo by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadow. It’s what sunflowers do. – Helen Keller

We are blessed with several fields of sunflowers every summer – thanks to our good neighbors who operate a seed farm.

Sunrise Pier Fishermen       lighthouse sunrise by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

The Kewaunee Lighthouse is situated at the end of a very long pier that stretches out into Lake Michigan. It is a very popular spot for fishermen. Behind these group of early morning anglers, the powerful sun begins its ascent.

If you look closely, you’ll notice a small boat in the very bottom right corner.
