A River, clouds and nature

FullSizeRender.jpg

The weather continues to keep us guessing. On Saturday, the temperatures were moderate at about 58°F, but the wind was crazy. We took a long hike along the river, where I shot this photo. The sky was so amazing, and the Miami River was just beautiful. Have a great week!

Reflecting colors

This is the last photo form Thumb Lake that I will share here. This is another drone shot. I love how the colors in the reflected image are more vibrant than the real thing. The lighting and angles just worked out that way.

Even without the intense colors ...

The colors were not as vivid at this altitude, but I love the view. It was a cold morning, but the winds had died down. I was flying the drone at about 150 feet when I snapped the photo.

This is Thumb Lake. Maybe I should have gone higher .. there is a much larger body of water to the right of on this view. Regardless, it is beautiful.

Here is a map view of the lake from a satellite photo (Apple Maps)

We spent a couple days in northern Michigan this week. Our goal was to photograph some of the foliage. There was spots where it was already brown, but we found some great places to photograph. The video below has many more photos and some drone footage. I hope you enjoy. (Teresa took this photo .. one of my favorites).

I think I am going to work on the format of the vlog .. I want to make some changes. I am founding it to be a great way to share more photos, and I love making videos, especially with the drone, but it needs more personality. I’m still trying to figure it out, but you will see some changes over the next few weeks. I also think I may only publish twice a week.

Be sure to send me your feedback if you have any ideas.

Check out my eyes ...

You have to love those eyes ... such an intense gaze. I took this photo while we were hiking at Taylorsville MetroPark. To be honest, I was surprised at how many birds we saw. Now back to foliage.
