In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Monochromatic.” As a graphic designer, my eye is trained to automatically find contrast and balance in my compositions. This image of a fireworks display from the fourth of July this year, has a rich gradation of pink to burgundy.

I decided to photograph the morning light and capture the stillness of the water, and its reflections from the lighthouse. This is Lake Michigan on a misty, gray morning in June. As I steppedContinue reading “It’s Quiet on Beaver Island”

We are blessed to be here. It’s a misty morning on Beaver Island, but a perfect way to say, farewell to June.
Last week there was a tragic fire. I never imagined going to a funeral for our happy little baby, Morgan. I’m so heart-broken.
