Last year at the Waldron Fen

I haven't been taking infrareds, I don't know why. This is from last year and not white balanced. I just worked on it this morning.

Grove of Maples near Alanson

Grove of Maples near Alanson, originally uploaded by jhhymas.

This is a classic white-leaves shot. If these sugar maples are grown in the open like this, each tree develops a full, rounded shape, and a small grove also forms a beautiful shape. There are several groves like this near here, sometimes the understory is kept open by annual mowing, sometimes by grazing.
In a tornado about 15 years ago, many trees in Orval Coors's maple grove were uprooted by the force of the storm. Over many weeks, he sawed them up, even the stumps, for firewood. He was well over seventy at the time.
Another maple grove can be found at Greensky Hill Indian Mission Church. It was planted to replicate the council grove that grew in a circular form and was sacred to Native Americans who lived here.

Ceremony, originally uploaded by jhhymas.

While we were in the park, Monte Nagler asked this fellow to sit in the chairs. Monte regarded the chairs as a photo opportunity, and I could see that they were, but the shots I took failed to be good ones. I needed to think about it more, bend down, look around, pick a bale of cotton . . .

The Nina and the Pinta fly the flag in Petoskey

I love ethe way the tourists came out in white. I didn't go aboard, because I didn't realize they were only going to be here two days. I thought I'd go later--now I'm sorry!

Try taking infrared portraits of your pets! If you have a plain brown dachshund that shows up poorly in color photos, you might be happily surprised.

February: Gulls on Almaden Lake

I was hoping they would be there for my granddaughters to see. And they were. I was there with my modified camera!

January Street Scene

Buildings often look better in infrared, than they would in color. This is one of the beautiful edifices near downtown Palo Alto.
