Tobico Marsh State Game Unit by Francis LaLonde

Viewing the Tobico Marsh State Game Area, located northwest of the intersection of Beaver Road and Two Mile Road. This is part of Tobico Marsh. The area is a large fresh water wetland. To my knowledge, the marsh is part of the Bay City State Recreation Area, located north-northwest from Bay City (Bay County), Michigan. It is separated from Saginaw Bay (part of Lake Huron) by a narrow strip of land, and actually does connect with the bay through an outlet flowing from Tobico Lagoon, to which it is also connected.

I used Corel® Painter Photo Essentials 4 to ‘paint’ my original photograph. Normally, I do not edit my photos very much. Mostly I’ll simply straighten, crop, then use a one-step enhancement.

I hadn’t really been ‘into’ photography until recently. Before then (about 2008), the costs of film, developing and printing was just too much for my wallet. Then, I bought my first digital camera…now I quite literally don’t know when to stop (well, maybe when the weather is too inclement, or the distances involved are prohibitive). Mostly, I stick with the local area (Bay City (Bay County), Michigan, US) – and have ‘discovered’ many hidden treasures nearby.

    Really beautiful work

  • Thanks…I actually like that photo painting program, and think that it really produces some nice stuff – tricky part is getting a feel for what might work with one type of photo, and what doesn’t – I like this particular style for my ‘landscapes,’ while for tall ships and buildings I generally use a different style. For buildings, I try to re-create the style of the old tourist postcards I remember as a kid, while for ships I try a different incomplete’ style.
