Autumn Sun

Fall Colors Peak in West Michigan

I really lucked out last week.  The waters of the Grand River were still relatively warm, the air temperature was below freezing, and the river was breathing a fine mist.  I could not have asked for better atmospherics for the 45 minutes I had to take photos. www.nickbromleyphotography.com

Birds Not Exactly of a Feather

Here’s a study in contrast :). First, two osprey hunting for fish in the Grand River that runs through Grand Rapids, Michigan. Second, a couple more shots of humming birds.

Grand Rapids Flooding

In the End Winter Is Fleeting

A couple more photos from February, when the Grand River was almost entirely frozen over in downtown Grand Rapids, MI.  This same river was badly flooded a mere week later.  See this post for pictures of the flooding.  To a native of the south like me, this scene is otherworldly.

Bridging the Ice

I’ve lived in West Michigan for about six years. This is the first time I’ve seen the Grand River frozen over from bank to bank. It’s a sight to behold and makes for some unique perspectives.

Stretching

Few things add more perspective to a scene than trees.  This tree stretches over the Grand River, whose surface is mostly frozen.
