It has been a tradition of mine to go outside the country to take part in the World Wide Photo Walk events. I have done that in 2009 and 2010, (both Denmark) so why should 2011 be any different. This year I went to Traverse City, MI. Traverse City and area is an absolutely gorgeous place this time of year. The fall colors are just about peaking, and the landscape is very inviting with lots of hills, beaches, dunes, wineries and orchards. Traverse City claims to be Cherry capital of the world – and that’s probably very true. I urge anyone within driving distance to check it out. Beautiful place.
I had the opportunity to attend two walks. Yes, I know you can only register for one, but that does not prohibit any one for tacking along another group, as long as you notify and get the OK from the leader of the walk. You can of course not submit photos for the competition. Well, I had no problem getting the OK from Ken Snyder, who was the leader of the walk in Glen Haven, MI – Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore.
This place is just gorgeous. Incredible beach and the dunes are just spectacular. I wish we had more time to explore the area and check out the Coast Guard museum, but that will have to be next time.
Above is a 8 frame pano from the Dunes overlooking the lake. Very strong winds that day, but thankfully no rain.
Okay, so this is the first post of my new website. I still have tweaks to make, but that will come over time. In the mean time I welcome any feedback you might have. I do realise that I’m writing this mostly for my self to read, but I have to start somewhere. So I’ll kick it off with an image I shot in Denmark in the summer of 2009. Reason for the pick, Im Danish, and its was already processed to my liking. Looking back, I wish I would have done some brackets to attempt a HDR. I went back to the same beach the year after, but this boat where nowhere to be seen. A glass fiber boat just isn’t the same – I tried it.
I follow quite a few photographers, and I’ll try to feature them here on my blog as times goes. I also like reading about photography, and the editing tools that goes with photography, so my book shelves are getting pretty full. A list and an occasional review of a book will most likely find its way on this blog as well.
Well that’s it for now. See you around.
