*Twirling Floral Skirt *   flashback photo from Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

Beside my wife’s flower bed, sprouting from a crack in the sidewalk, we have a cluster of sweet, tiny, pink poppies that appeared on their own.

I took this photo a few years ago, in the early morning hours.  I call it Twirling Floral Skirt because it reminds me of a young girl spinning around to make her skirt flow out.

Sudden Outburst      lighthouse sunrise by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

I had the opportunity to capture a sunrise in Algoma last Saturday. Low clouds couldn’t hold back the morning sun as it rose over Lake Michigan, beyond the lighthouse and pier.

There have been few days, recently, where the sky hasn’t been overcast and grey. There have been fewer days when I’ve had the time to get out and shoot.

This is an HDR image – where I combined five different exposures of the same shot to provide a greater dynamic range.

Happy Faces         flower photo by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

You can’t help but smile when you see the bright, happy faces of the delicate, blooming violas.

These are some of our favorites in the garden. They seem to be very prolific, popping up in the lawn and other flowerbeds where they weren’t planted.

Softly and Tenderly     flower photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

There is something about the delicate furl and opening of rose petals that draws the viewer in. Doesn’t this image make you want to get closer to smell its intoxicating fragrance?

This is a flower I found on a trip to Branson, MO a couple of years ago.  It was in a small flowerbed, next to the parking lot, at a motel we spent the night at.  You never know where you will find beauty to behold…and capture…so keep your camera close by.

Party Lights                  leaf photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

It’s the middle of winter and my last few posts have featured some pretty dreary tones. I thought it was time for some color so I did a little browsing and found this gem waiting on my hard drive since last spring.

These leaves, photographed in the woods of Northeast Wisconsin (near my home), were early spring sprouts; debuting in April. The way the sunlight illuminates them, it reminded me of colorful party lights strung though the trees.

Big City Serenity           night cityscape from Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

I was able to connect with a photographer friend on a recent trip to Milwaukee, WI. He graciously took me to a few locations for nighttime photography. I thought this one turned out well.

Along Milwaukee’s river walk, there are a number of downtown locations where a beautiful scene can be captured.

Full Moon Flightpath      night photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

This full moon was settling behind the trees as a flock of birds (not bats) flew through the scene.

Because of the full moon, you’d naturally assume this photo was taken at night. In fact, it was taken at 7:06 am. Even more ironic – I was out that morning trying to catch a nice sunrise at Algoma. The sun didn’t cooperate, but while waiting for it, I noticed the full moon going down and focused my attention, and camera, there. As I was framing up the shot, a flock of sea gulls entered the frame…so, of course, I clicked.

Sunshine on a Stalk       flower photo by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadow. It’s what sunflowers do. – Helen Keller

We are blessed with several fields of sunflowers every summer – thanks to our good neighbors who operate a seed farm.

Winter Enigma            winter landscape by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

Very cold temperatures and warmer Lake Michigan waters created an early morning fog that coated the area with a fluffy frost. The Kewaunee lighthouse stands shining bright in the background. Occasionally, billows of fog would mostly obscure the lighthouse from view – at least from the shore. I classify this as a sunrise photo, because it was taken right about sunrise, but the heavy cloud bank on the horizon kept the sun at bay for a good deal.

Sunrise Pier Fishermen       lighthouse sunrise by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

The Kewaunee Lighthouse is situated at the end of a very long pier that stretches out into Lake Michigan. It is a very popular spot for fishermen. Behind these group of early morning anglers, the powerful sun begins its ascent.

If you look closely, you’ll notice a small boat in the very bottom right corner.

A Flair for the Dramatic           flower photo by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

Spring Enchantment      skyscape by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigtial.com

The sunset and high clouds created a magical moment of enchanting color. A beautiful dance in nature.

This was taken in the farm field across the road from our rural Kewaunee, WI home. I have taken many photos of this tree because it offers some interest and perspective to the beautiful sunsets we can experience. I often wish there was an old barn or a little white chapel between me an the sunset. Until something else pops up, the tree will have to do.

Not Ready to Wake    lighthouse sunrise by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

Love's Vortex      flower photo by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

“It is at the edge of the petal that love waits.” ~ William Carlos Williams

There is no other flower that so vividly conveys love, beauty and passion as a red rose. I can easily be mesmerized by the delicate symmetry of a well-formed rose. The swirl of this one’s petals seem to lure you, helplessly, into its center.

Curvaceous   landscape by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

A number of people have told me this stretch of highway, just before you reach Gills Rock at the northern tip of the Door County, WI peninsula, is the most photographed road in the world.  I don’t know who’s keeping track, but a number of people stopped and got out of their cars to snap a quick photo while I was there. In fact, I left my home before sunrise just to get there and this shot in the early morning light.

My intent was to make it an “Autumn Colors” tour and get some great fall foliage.  I didn’t get much else worth noting.  Once the sun was up, it was clear and bright – creating too much contrast and washing out the colors.

I spent a good deal of time in processing this image. A lot of that time was spent removing a power line that stretched across the upper part of the image. Thanks to the magic of software…with a bit of skill and a bunch of patience…an unsightly distraction was eliminated. I thought about removing the mailbox and For Sale sign on the right, but decided it wasn’t too distracting and probably added to the rural feel.

Bluebird Dawn Sunrise photo by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

Just before sunrise I noticed a bluebird checking out the bluebird houses in our yard. I grabbed the camera and headed out the back door. I got a picture but not the one I was after. Here’s the story…

My goal was to snap a picture of the bluebird posed on the bluebird house, framed by a big, bright sun behind him. While I was trying to line up the shot, the bluebird flew off the house, into a nearby tree. I was able to click off a quick photo of the bird in the tree before he flew off for good. Then I turned my camera to the sunrise and snapped a couple of frames.

This image is a combination of two different photos. I started with a shot of the sunrise and overlaid the silhouette of the tree branches with the bluebird. The original photo of the bird and branches had a background of just light gray sky. Not very interesting or appealing. The sunrise was pretty on it’s own, but the branches and bird adds interest .

Both photos were taken within a minute of each other. Not quite the image I was shooting for, but I think the final result turned out well.

Sunny Delight    flower photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

Everyone loves sunflowers.  There is just something about their bright, cheery disposition that even a cloudy day can’t dampen.  A full field of them is sheer delight!

We’ve had some dreary, gray days – weather wise – recently. I thought a sunflower image would be a welcome sight. This field of sunflowers was found in our area of rural Kewaunee County, WI.

Foggy Boardwalk Blues     landscape photo by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

Early morning fog kept the lampposts lit well beyond the time of sunrise along the Crescent Beach boardwalk at Algoma, WI. In fact, this image was captured about ten minutes after the sun had come up.

Icing On the Lake    winter lighthouse sunrise photo by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

When temperatures drop on Lake Michigan, the ice begins to form and coat anything it contacts.

This is a sunrise view of the lighthouse and pier at Kewaunee, WI – on the western shore of Lake Michigan.

That rock in the foreground isn’t actually a rock. It is an ice formation created by snow/ice breaking away from the shore and being trapped in the ice a few feet from shore.

A big THANK YOU to the art collector from Kokomo, IN who purchased my, "Icy Morning Mist," image - having it printed on metal. (I would love to see that as a metal print.) You can view the original and read my comments about this one on my website: http://popsdigital.com/lighthouse/icy-morning-mist/
I believe this is an image that Google features on their Chromecast service.

Luscious       flower photo by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

This is another one of my “can’t wait for spring” creations.  Still in the dull, cold, dreariness of early spring, I picked up a few flowers from a local florist.

This was a particularly beautiful bloom. I took a number of photos of this image dry and then added some moisture from a simple spray bottle. I propped it up on a kitchen chair and photographed it in early morning, natural light from a nearby window.

Bright Future      sunrise photo by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

This is a shot of the sun rising over Lake Michigan, beyond the Kewaunee, WI lighthouse. The wind was blowing, the waters were rough and the pier was wet which gave a little bit of color to the normally drab, concrete pier.

Fire Painters in the Sky      landscape photo by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

This photo was taken in march of 2007.  At home in the early evening, I saw the wonderful colors in the sky out my living room window.  Of course, I grabbed my camera and dashed out the door.

I crossed the road in front of my house to be able to frame up the sky without any interference from the power lines and poles between me and the beauty. I included the dormant tree to add contrast and interest to the scene. I snapped several frames of the incredible sky with the trees and field before me.

If you haven’t guessed by now, the water you see in the foreground wasn’t part of the original scene.  I added the water, digitally, after the fact.  The lovely, rippling reflection of the water in this image replaced a barren farm field, mostly covered with melting snow.

Future So Bright      sunrise photo by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

I don’t often take photos of myself…but I made and exception this time. Of course, my choices were limited since I was the only one around at the time.

It was a morning in February and I was on the beach at Kewaunee, WI hoping to catch a nice sunrise. I took several photos and then, for something different, I decided to step into the shot.

Bench on a Winter Beach       photo by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

This is a view of Lake Michigan at the the Algoma, WI beach on March 4, 2007.  I was heading to the church early in the morning and stopped, as I often do, to snap a few pictures.  It was at the tail-end of a snow storm and, though you can’t see it, snow was still blowing quite a bit.  I remember it being miserable outside.

The Center of Passion      Flower photo by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

There is something about this image that captivates me. I’d like to say it was taken in some exotic location, but it wasn’t. It is the center of a poppy from the flower bed beside our home.

Of course, it’s the rich, deep red of the petals that initially grab me.  However,  it’s the purple center, ringed by the dark seeds, that keep me staring.

Ladies In Red         flower photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

If you’re looking for springtime beauty with vivid color, it’s hard to beat tulips. These unique, deep red beauties, surrounded by a sea of pink, yellow-fringed tulips were photographed during the annual Tulip Festival in Pella, Iowa.

I struggled with this image. I spent a lot of time trying to get the five red tulips to stand out from the background. The colors are close enough, it’s hard to distinguish the detail of the foreground from the blur of the background. I’m not sure I achieved the separation I wanted the average viewer to experience. I’ve looked at it so much, I can no longer be objective. You’ll have to decide and let me know your first impression.

Deeply Devoted to Love      Flower photo by Bill pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

A closeup view of the delicate, and often emotional, beauty of the red rose.

On occasion, I’ve picked up a few long-stem flowers from a local florist for the main purpose of photographing them. Photographing flowers in the wild is a seasonal sport.  Photographing flowers purchased from the florist can be a year-round activity.

If I remember correctly, I set this one in a vase on my kitchen table.  I used the normal overhead and ambient light available in our kitchen. The drops you see are not water. (Though I’ll also use water in some shots.)  These drops are glycerin – looks like water but holds better to the petals.

Caught In The Woods    full moon photo by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

It seems, on an early morning decent, this full moon got hung up in the tree line.

These trees line the back side of a field across the road from my home.  Every now and then, when a full moon is setting, I like to grab an image of it among the trees.  On occasion, I’ve snapped similar views of the setting sun.

Orange Plush     lighthouse sunrise by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

The sky looked more like soft, flowing fabric above the Kewaunee, Wisconsin lighthouse, on the western shore of Lake Michigan.

This image was captured in early December of last year. (2014)  I stumbled upon it while looking for another image in my archives.  I thought it was worth sharing.

This is a slightly different perspective of the Kewaunee lighthouse than you’ll normally see in my posts.  This is from the north side of the pier.  Most of the time, I’m shooting from the south side.

I had the opportunity to capture a sunrise in Algoma last Saturday. Low clouds couldn’t hold back the morning sun as it rose over Lake Michigan, beyond the lighthouse and pier.

There have been few days, recently, where the sky hasn’t been overcast and grey. There have been fewer days when I’ve had the time to get out and shoot.

This is an HDR image – where I combined five different exposures of the same shot to provide a greater dynamic range.

Bright Idea     flower photo by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

This azalea was one of the more colorful and prolific bloomers in my wife’s flower bed this year.

I enjoy getting a close up view of flowers (and other things) to see the details that we often don’t notice in a normal view.

Lighting of the Whale   holiday lights photo by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

Another holiday tradition has been established.  On Black Friday, the Milwaukee Public Museum flips the switch on more than 4,200 lights that decorate a 36 foot long humpback whale skeleton.

The skeleton is a permanent display that hangs from the ceiling over the museum’s grand staircase.

Ladies In Red flower photography by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

If you’re looking for springtime beauty with vivid color, it’s hard to beat tulips. These unique, deep red beauties, surrounded by a sea of pink, yellow-fringed tulips were photographed during the annual Tulip Festival in Pella, Iowa.

I struggled with this image. I spent a lot of time trying to get the five red tulips to stand out from the background. The colors are close enough, it’s hard to distinguish the detail of the foreground from the blur of the background. I’m not sure I achieved the separation I wanted the average viewer to experience. I’ve looked at it so much, I can no longer be objective. You’ll have to decide and let me know your first impression.

Limited Shelf Life    autumn image by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

On one of my recent hikes through the autumn woods, I snapped a brightly colored maple leaf that found a resting place on a shelf mushroom.

For those not familiar, shelf mushrooms (or bracket fungi) grow on the side of trees (living and dead). You’ll usually find them attached to rough barked trees.

There are dozens of shelf mushroom varieties – different sizes, shapes and colors. They are known by a variety of descriptive names – beefsteak fungus, sulphur shelf, birch bracket, dryad’s saddle, artist’s conk, and turkey tail…and others.

The classification, Polypores, is often used for the type of the hard or leathery fungi (like the one pictured here) that lacks a stem, growing straight out of wood.  The polypore’s woody fruiting bodies are called conks.

Streaking Past the Avalon    long exposure photo by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

The Avalon Theatre is alive, again, in Milwaukee’s Bay View neighborhood.  This historic landmark theater was completely renovated and refitted to offer patrons a unique entertainment experience.  The traditional movie theater seating has been replaced by leather chairs with a table between them where movie goers can order and enjoy a meal – with their movie – prepared on site and served by the wait staff.

The Avalon is a distinctive example of the Mediterranean Revival architectural style. The lobby features Moorish arches, twisting Mediterranean columns, figures that resemble gargoyles and a statue of Athena, a Greek goddess — all from the original building.  It is the first Wisconsin theater built for movies with sound

I happened to be there (and created this image) on the night of their Grand Opening celebration in March of 2015.  The place was full of young professionals enjoying drinks in the lobby and touring the theater. I was hanging out with a photography friend from the area who took me to a few spots in Milwaukee to shoot some night scenes.  He, rightfully, thought this would be a promising location.

The photo, itself, is a long exposure (20 seconds).  The white and red lines were created by the lights from the vehicles that passed by while the camera shutter was open. Those spots in the upper left of the photo, I believe, are the result of dust that must have been on my lens. Normally they wouldn’t be so prominent. I think the mercury street lights and the aperture setting of f/22 I used for this shot brought them out.  Normally, I would work to remove those from an image…but in this case, I liked the effect and left them in.

You can learn more about the Avalon’s renovation, amenities they offer and its interesting history simply by Googling it.

Sitting Pretty    butterfly photo by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

Creation is teaming with unique, delicate beauties for the observant who are persistent to see beyond the obvious.

Within the Puelicher Butterfly Vivarium in the Milwaukee Public Museum there are hundreds of specimens. This one, a Small Postman butterfly, (heliconius melpomene), was among the tiniest.  (To view the largest, visit my previous post: Owl Butterfly.)

Postman butterflies are tropical butterflies found in Central and South America. They are most common along sunlit forest edges with flowers.

As sweet as they may appear, they have little to fear from predators. As caterpillars, they feed on passion flower leaves, storing up toxic chemicals they retained throughout their lifespan that makes them foul-tasting to typical predators.

Blush of Fall    fall foliage by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

The last leaves of autumn provide a colorful contrast to their bleak, forest background.

For me, the colorful contrast and moody nature make this a worthwhile image.  I think the leaves, with their smattering of red on orange, are beautiful. Take those quintessential autumn leaves  and set them before a shadowy, bluish background and I think the eye-appeal soars.  It’s a contrast of light and dark – bright and moody.

*Twirling Floral Skirt *   flashback photo from Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

Beside my wife’s flower bed, sprouting from a crack in the sidewalk, we have a cluster of sweet, tiny, pink poppies that appeared on their own.

I took this photo a few years ago, in the early morning hours.  I call it Twirling Floral Skirt because it reminds me of a young girl spinning around to make her skirt flow out.

Orange Overhead    sunrise photo by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

As a photographer, I’m always on the hunt for those elusive, magical moments where the rising (or setting) sun collaborates with interesting cloud formations to paint the landscape with vivid color.  This was one of those moments at the Kewaunee, Wisconsin lighthouse, on the western shore of Lake Michigan.

Those familiar with my work know that I feature this lighthouse often. It’s because I live just a couple of miles away. It’s close enough that if I’m up before sunrise, I can look out my window to see if the sky  and sun are going to cooperate. If the pre-sunrise sky is showing promise, and I have the time, I can grab my camera and be on the shore in a few minutes. The sky, itself is beautiful, but setting a lighthouse in the foreground makes for a much more interesting scene.

Gone to Seed   nature photo by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

At the end of its season, the milkweed distributes the produce of its summer labor – the potential milkweed crop of next season.

I snapped this image on a recent trip to the woods in my area. I was out to capture some fall color and this milkweed caught my eye. I found it on the edge of the woods, as I was leaving.   The fine fibers of the seeds were slowly undulating in the light breeze.  It may not be as exciting as brightly colored leaves, but I thought it was a very cool, and beautiful, view of nature.

The milkweed, is an American genus of herbaceous perennial, dicotyledonous plants that contains over 140 known species. Milkweed is an important plant because so many species of insects depend on it.

Happy Hollow Scene  fall panorama by Bill Pevlor of www.PopsDigital.com

Who wouldn’t love to be in the woods on a beautiful autumn day, strolling through the hills and hollows, on a colorful carpet that provides a comforting crunch with each step. It’s a magical time in a magical place – the woodlands of northeast Wisconsin.

This is one of those images I like the more I gaze upon it.  This is a patch of woods beyond the field behind our house. It’s full of colors and contours and peace.

It’s difficult to get a view like this in the middle of the woods.  This wasn’t a clearing.  I couldn’t get any distance between me and the trees…because the trees are everywhere. To get this wide view, I had to turn my camera sideways, to a portrait orientation, and take six overlapping shots that I combined into one.
