Michigan Fun Part II

Corn is King

Corn is King

This collection of photos was captured in rural areas of Northern Michigan during August of 2012.  It is pastoral with three barns, a country store and roadside produce vendors.  “Beach at the End of Time” was inspired by the movie “Tree of Life”.

  1. Great set Ron! Love the barns, and the beach photo shows just how low the lakes are these days. Serious hazards to navigation for the freighters that ply the lakes.

    Oddly enough I would like to take a nap right about now in that over grown barn. After that I’m pretty sure could get some quality writing done in there assuming there is a roof! Great pics!

    • Thank you Laura. I have not done much monochrome lately, may have to whip up a few.

      • I think you should, and join in the MMC challenge. You don’t need to post every time, just when you feel like it.

        • I will look at that, but I am such a procrastinator.

        • If you want to submit, send an image by Monday afternoons, EST, and make sure the image is no wider or taller than 1000 px. Provide her your blog link and voila!

        • I kind of know Leanne. Her blog is very popular because she gives useful advice on photography.

        • And she has great pictures. It’s actually “our” MMC Challenge but she hosts it on her site.

        • You get around.

          May 28, 2014 at 9:53 am

        • I talk to her every day lol. I do get around WP.
