Fire in the Sky -- Charlevoix Sunset, Michigan by 

There is nothing like an assortment of clouds as the sun sets to light up dramatically for a few seconds — and to be waiting with my camera for that magical moment that exists only briefly, creating a dramatic canvas of colors that will fade quickly. This includes the lighthouse at Charlevoix, Michigan on Lake Michigan. (1,616 views)

My passion for photography began as a child — even telling my parents what pictures they should take! Photography is a “time machine” which transports us back to different eras and places worldwide. It stops time and captures life in each century in a timeless fashion. From the beauty of the human face and body to the rugged terrain, vast oceanscapes, breathtaking sunsets, amazing wildlife, and fascinating cultures, photography captures it all.
