The same sunrise scene using "Night Shot" on my Pixel 3aXL. It doesn't usually change the colors that dramatically... but it sure brightens up the sky. I personally like the first one better, all the purple 🥰

Early morning mist burns off the water as the sun rises over the Straits of Mackinac. The Round Island Lighthouse is one of Michigan’s most photographed lighthouses, but rarely do we get to see how crystal clear the water is around it. Would you swim here? 🌊 . . . . #puremichigan #fromwhereidrone #lighthouse #thegreatlakesstate #michigan_scenic #michigan #summer #michiganders #lakesuperior #puremittigan #upperpeninsula#northernmichigan #lakemichigan #greatlakes #puremichiganders #upnorth #puremittenpride #michiganmade #greatlakesstate #mittenstate #yooperlife

"Damselfly Future" Orange Bluet damselflies in tandem with the female laying eggs from the tip of her abdomen just below the water's surface on vegetation. All this while the male stands guard as he's latched on to the front of the thorax of the female in a perfectly fitting clasp. . . . #bryanstewartcreative #wildlifephotography #photography #wildlife #nature #createcommune #agameoftones #gearednomad #artofvisuals #nikon #nikond810 #potd #official_photography_hub #thevisualarchive #worldbestgram #thephotosociety #ourplanetdaily #dailyshot #naturalmichigan #puremichigan #thegreatlakesstate #michiganders #michiganawesome #michiganislife #awesomemitten #damselfly #damselflies #odonata #orangebluet #layingeggs

Sometimes I look at the stars and am reminded of how small we really are. I am also reminded just how happy 8 year old me would have been if I would have kept with my dream of becoming an astronaut. 🤫 . . This might not be the highest quality astro shot but it is a distinct reminder of the hours I spent at the Headlands International Dark Sky Park outside of Mackinaw City, MI. It was such a calming and centering experience for me. I spent 3 hours laying on a blanket on the rocky shore of Lake Michigan simply looking at the stars and taking a few photos. It was incredible. . . #amateurphotography #ig_nature_naturally #optoutside #minnesotaphotographer #stateology #lakemichigan #upperpeninsula #michiganawesome #greatlakes #mittenlove #puremichigan #midwestexplorers #puremittigan #ilovemi #michiganview #michiganders #michigrammers #midwest #puremidwest #michigan #thegreatlakesstate #astrophotography #ig_milkyway #ig_astrophotography #spacenerd #milkyway #headlandsdarkskypark #igworldmilkyway #internationaldarkskyassociation

Charlevoix the Beautiful. 50 pictures, 1 minute. 🤯 It's not long enough to show all the beauty but you get an idea of it. 😍 From Lake Charlevoix, Lake Michigan, the lighthouse and Mackinac Bridge sunset and Gaylord Harvest Moon rising..it was a great trip and worth the long drive! 🥰

How I got started with photography⬇️ - Sep 19th, 2019 The reason I started taking photos wasn’t actually because I enjoyed photography. I was actually more drawn the the process and struggle of getting a single photograph. - I grew up watching adventure shows and a variety of National Geographic documentaries, and I was always so drawn to the adventure and experiences that those people had. I loved seeing the struggle and the emotion in those documentaries and once I started taking photos I realized that the photos I loved the most were the ones that I struggled the most for. -

Blogging tip Thursday! Just kidding, that's not a thing around here, but tonight it's going to be because I've got a tip for ya. . If you want to get serious about blogging and have others take you seriously, start doing these 4 things REAAAALLY well. . 1. Be consistent. 2. Provide quality content. 3. Build trust with your audience. 4. Promote your work. . Now before you're like "Steph, I KNOW there is more to having a successful blog than those 4 things, it's a lot of work!" Yes, agreed. Buuutttt if you can master these 4, your blog will be at a whole other level. . You'll go from writing when you feel like it (which is totally fine, absolutely nothing wrong with that ) to someone that people start to see as an expert in your area. They'll start to think of YOU when they think of the topic you talk about. When you need baking advice, who do you reach out to? When you need design work, who do you contact? When you're trying your hand at knitting, who do you call? YOU can be that for someone if you do these 4 things and do them well. . Just wanted to leave this one here for you today. Go get it my friend. What is "it"? Mmmmmm only YOU know that. . What's your biggest roadblock from starting or really diving into your own blog? Tell me below!

We almost missed this stunning sunset because it was super cloudy and we didn't think any color would show through... And then viola!

Point Betsie is definitely one of the coolest places to visit on this side of the state. During the winter months when everything is covered in ice and snow, I looks like a different world. Visiting Point Betsie is a experience must had. . .

As a landscape photographer, I am thankful that I live in a state that has the longest freshwater coastline in the United States. I know I have only scratched the surface of the beaches Michigan provides but the ones I have visited so far have been nothing short of spectacular.⁣ ⁣ Leelanau County, Michigan⁣ October 2017⁣ “Rocky Shores II"⁣ ⁣ I have had a couple of customers ask if I had "Rocky Shores" in a vertical format. Here is the cropped version (Instagram requested aspect ratio ). I just posted the full image on my website, just do a search for "Rocky Shores." Thanks!

I’m not sure why, but this West Michigan scene looks otherworldly to me.
