We're running on to our next destination--Boise, ID. Gonna celebrate my niece's birthday then drive down to California to celebrate my cousin's wedding then we're off to Illinois for Thanksgiving. Woo! - I have been driving most of today but we're approaching the mountain pass, so this newbie to driving the RV on hills is handing over to reigns to the expert. (TY'S SO GOOD AT DRIVING THIS THING!) I remember when driving the RV at all was intimidating. Just one part of the crash course that has been this almost 8 months of RV life. ☺️ - P.S. Siri pronounces this location as a national "lack-a-shore." 😂

Figured I'd try and photograph as many flowers (and weeds) as possible, since they'll be gone soon. Found these interesting blooms in St Ignace along the water.

Up until this year, I never came across moose in the wild here in Ontario. (I saw 4 this year so far!) They’re really amazing animals, and for some reason I think they’re pretty majestic creatures . . . . #naturallyillustrated #moose #mooseillustration #moosetattoo #illustratenow #blackworknow #inkwork #dotworknow #stippling #animalillustration #northernontario #upnorth #makersnorth #saultstemarie #algomacountry #thegreatlakes #thegreatlakesstate #lakesuperior #micronpens #ontarioartist #canadianart #manatoulin #konradw #konradwart

Hey pumpkin! 🎃 There are still plenty of “It’s Gorgeous Outside!” days left. 🌻 Bask in our sunlight and lake breezes. 🌞 Listen to the leaves rustle. 🍂 Watch the sun set over our ocean-like lake. ⛵ Lemme know when you’re ready to slide down a giant sand dune. 👣 Or hike or bike our wooded trails. 🚲 DM me. I’ve got a suite deal for you. 😉

And the final image of my time catching the sunset at Sportsmans Park in East Jordan is this vertical composition with a portion of the Jordan River cutting into what would normally be solid ground in the park. This flooding is quite transformative for the area so capturing this in a couple different ways was something I wanted to do. #puremitten #puremittigan #exploremichigan   #michiganartist #michiganphotographer #northernmichigan #greatlakesstate #michiganawesome #thegreatlakesstate #puremittenpride #naturalmichigan #Michigansun #mittenlove #enjoymichigan #michigrammers #midwestmoment #igersmidwest #midwestliving #michiganders #michiganoverboard #mittenstatelove #michiganlove #nikond810 #landscapephotography #landscapelovers #landscapephotomag #sunrise_sunsets_aroundtheworld #sunrise_shotz

View No Longer…The Grand Haven Lighthouse finally has its catwalk back (the black steel elevated walkway between each light and the shore) and with that these views are no longer possible. I am glad that the catwalk is back but glad I got the opportunity to photograph beautiful scenes like this. I loved the lighthouse reflection with this amazing sunset.⁣ ⁣ "View No Longer"⁣ Grand Haven Lighthouse, Grand Haven, Michigan⁣ December 2018⁣ ⁣ Prints, canvases, metal prints, 2020 Michigan Calendars and more are available on my website at Hartscapes.com.

Twilight on the shores of the Sleeping Bear Dunes is magical. I’ve enjoyed many campfires here with some of the people I hold dearest, and images like this will always bring them back to me. 🥰

Bidding goodbye to the beautiful birds of Spring and Summer in Michigan...hope to see you again next year! 🦅 American Bald Eagle Sandhill Crane Downy Woodpecker Great Egret Tufted Titmouse Great Blue Heron Gray-headed Chickadee Indigo Bunting Eastern Kingbird Cape May Warbler 🦆🦉🦃 I know not all of these birds are migrated from Michigan but chances are low we will see these again before 2020. Some of these were at Tawas Point for the birding festival, some were at Kensington MetroPark, the Bald Eagle lives on Belle Isle near Detroit, and the Sandhill Crane was at Great Lakes National Cemetery in Holly. So glad Bald Eagles are making a comeback in Michigan 😍

The Marquette lighthouse. I crawled around on the rocks in my work clothes to get to the front to capture this. #worthit

New Moon this weekend, really looking forward to looking back in time. Really, I just say that because looking at all of these stars is looking back millions of years, by the time the light they produce reaches my eye...then I apply that to everything because it takes time for light to reflect on what I see and say that everything I see is technically the past. Okay, happy hump day!

Log: 146A⁠⁣⁠ ⁠⁣⁠ I have calculated that Adamah has over 600,000 species of trees. ⁠⁣⁠ ⁠⁣⁠ The trees have symbiotic relationships with mycorrhizal fungi that live on their roots. The fungi link each tree to others nearby, forming a huge, forest-scale platform for communication and resource sharing. It's astounding! ⁠⁣⁠ ⁠⁣⁠ Under normal circumstances, forests help stabilize the climate by removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Trees require carbon dioxide to manufacture carbohydrates, which feed the trees and contribute to the tree structure, and, indirectly, to produce oxygen. Without trees to take up excess carbon dioxide, it builds up in the atmosphere and traps solar radiation, leading to an overall warming of the planet and extreme temperature and weather shifts.⁠⁣⁠ ⁠⁣⁠ ⁠⁣⁠ ⁠⁣⁠ Live Free⁠⁣⁠ ⁠⁣⁠ -Koephus⁠⁣⁠ ⁠⁣⁠ ⁠⁣⁠ ⁠⁣⁠ ⁠⁣⁠ ⁠⁣⁠ ⁠⁣⁠ ⁠⁣⁠ ⁠⁣⁠ ⁠⁣⁠ ⁠⁣⁠ ⁠ #wildvisuals #allaboutadventures #earth_shots #mtnfolk #theearthoutdoors #rsa_outdoors #outdoortones #voyaged #naturalmichigan #midwestisbest #thegreatlakesstate #midwest #moodmagic #dreamland_arts_of_nature #pretty_shotz #splendid_woodlands #fingerprintofgod #worlds_beautiful_photos #mountainstories #escapeandwonder #outdoortones #planet_earth_shots #adventureenthusiasts #outdooraddict #exploremoretogether #outdoorculture #theoutdoorpassion #adventureisnecessary #earthlandscape #wonderlustcollective

And now for a different Lake entirely! 💙 This is Higgins Lake beach in the North Higgins Lake State Park just south of Grayling MI. We passed by Houghton Lake and Higgins Lake on our way to Traverse City and the weather and waves were pretty and perfect! 😍 We had never been to either Lake but both of them are really big and have nice beaches and boating areas. And you get that "small town lake resort" feel from the little villages you pass through in the area.

Probably my favorite shot from my last trip out. That 10-Stop ND filter really allows for dramatic transformations in certain elements of a landscape. In this shot, it made these incredible streaks with the clouds leading you out into that sunset color on the horizon. Interested in learning more about landscape photography? Want to come stay in a cabin with some like-minded photographers doing what we love to do? October 18th-20th, we'll be staying in a cabin where I'll be leading a photography workshop teaching teaching the basics to camera use and the guiding principles to landscape photography while we enjoy beautiful fall colors and that Lake Michigan shoreline at Wilderness State Park. Link is in my bio if you want to check it out! #puremitten #puremittigan #exploremichigan   #michiganartist #michiganphotographer #northernmichigan #greatlakesstate #michiganawesome #thegreatlakesstate #puremittenpride #naturalmichigan #Michigansun #mittenlove #enjoymichigan #michigrammers #midwestmoment #igersmidwest #midwestliving #michiganders #michiganoverboard #mittenstatelove #michiganlove #nikond810 #landscapephotography #landscapelovers #longexposure #longexpo #longexposureoftheday
