Ice Planet

 

Muskego Lake, Muskego, WI in Winter

Muskego Lake, Muskego, WI | February 22, 2018

The world looks so different from up in the air. This was taken during my arrival into Milwaukee, WI. This is a Muskego Lake in Muskego, WI. I love the textures on the ice—it looks as though it is of another world.

40,000 Foot Monument

40,000 Foot Monuments

Yesterday I took a cross-country flight to San Diego from my hometown of Milwaukee. I told my co-worker whom I was flying with that I often use my travels to see the beautiful landscapes of the United States and Canada. This photo was taken at around 40,000 feet in Arizona looking northwest to Utah’s Monument Valley. Even though I was only able to see it for a very brief time, it made me want to visit it in person some time!

Cloud Sharks

Cloud Sharks

The razor sharp tips of these Cascade mountain tops poked through the cloud layer below, reminding me of shark fins sticking out of the waters of an ocean. Taken in late April 2016 just south of the U.S.-Canadian border on my way home from Vancouver, British Columbia.

Water's Edge

“Water’s Edge”

A morning rain created this scene today. I think a macro lens is in my future!

I am also playing a bit of catch-up tonight. Life has been a bit busy these past few days and I have had little screen-time to post these photos, so tonight is finally had some time to post four-days-worth of images. I assure you they were all taken of their respective days, and sorry for the delay.

“Partial Annular Eclipse Series”

Tonight in the northern hemisphere there was a solar eclipse. The annular eclipse is when the new moon crosses the path of the sun and creates what looks like a ring when seen at full eclipse. Where I live we were only able to see a partial (57%) eclipse. This is a series of six photos from eclipse start to sunset.

A Day's End

“A Day’s End”

Clouds are a favorite subject of mine. A reason that I like clouds is that there are never two clouds that are alike. With that, the sky is constantly looking different even if you shoot from the exact same spot every day. Sure there are gray, gloomy days with little definition, but even on those days the clouds are different than any other day before or after that time.

My favorite time is like the one in this photo today. The lighting, layers of the clouds and colors from vibrant yellow to purple really made this image work! Best of all, this was taken from my driveway, during a break from mowing my lawn—just after a little rain and hail storm.
