Lake Michigan with a Cloud Frame

One of many paths leading to the beach at the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore in Beverly Shores.  This one happens to be at the old Red Lantern. The lake was starting to shift to its usual blue-green color as the sun emerged from behind a thick c...

Trillium Woods

A carpet of trillium covers the woods behind the subdivision where I grew up in Northwest Indiana. We spent a lot of time playing in 'The Woods'. Very fun to return here during trillium season.

I'm taking a break from the camas today to post another photo from the trail at Lacamas Regional Park.  It's some sort of lily; I'm sorry I don't know the variety despite all my internet searching this morning.  There were about a dozen of th...

Well, I made it back to the camas field this morning for a third time this season.  I tried to go yesterday, got all the way to the park, headed out on the trail, turned on my camera, and realized that the new battery I loaded was not charged.&nbs...
