A photographer waits for just the right light on a cold fall morning at a scenic overlook on Old Mission Peninsula.

This is the scene he is overlooking.

I took a ride down below the scenic overlook on another road and was able to catch a snow rainbow. This was shot in the general direction of the photo above this one. I wonder if the guy up on the hill caught it too!

Some how I managed to get every single leaf and branch in this shot out of focus. I can assure you it wasn't intentional. Nevertheless I ended up liking the composition and the colors. I almost ran it through the Faststone oil treatment but it being so out of focus is almost a natural oil treatment look as it stands.

This one ended up being my favorite shot from today's ride. I like simple I suppose.

@Will Focus I don't know where you live but that looks and feels like heaven to me :)
Traverse City, Michigan. Yes, I am lucky to be living here. I've lived in alot of regions in the US and Caribbean, west coast, east coast, city, country, etc, etc, etc. This spot in northwest lower Michigan is a gem among some of the finest jewels of my travels and it is because of those travels that I can fully appreciate what I have.

ILCE-7RM2    24-70mm F2.8 DG DN | Art 019    53mm    f/2.8    1/13s    ISO 2500


Another shot from this morning on the ride back to Traverse City. Out of the corner of my eye I saw a side road with tire tracks in the snow as I drove past. There was no traffic so I stopped and backed up, rolled down the window and snapped a picture, looking at the trees and the tracks. Well tonight as I was reviewing the images from this morning I noticed the deer crossing the road in this one. Completely accidental on my part. My tire tracks in the snow have been photobombed by a deer.

More accidental deer in the field from this morning's first fall snowfall. I had no idea they were there. It was almost compleetly dark to my eye when I shot this. It's amazing what the camera can pick up at high ISO's through a windshield.

Amazing pictures, you really make me wish I went for the Sony A7R instead for the extra cropping-bility and possibly a bit more DR.

I'm more and more surprised by the camera's capabilities. These images are not modified other than being cropped. No noise reduction (which they do need) no shadow lifts, contrast adjustments or anything. Straight out of the camera. I shot them this morning just to get an idea what I could capture at extreme ISO's after a shot I took of a deer the other evening piqued my interest.

ILCE-7C    E 28-200mm F2.8-5.6 A071    200mm    f/5.6    1/100s    ISO 100

A very large panorama of one of the trees I pass every morning to work but I get the morning light on it only a few weeks every year.

A different perspective that shows how well the sunrise light really brings out the red autumn colour, panorama as well.

ILCE-7C    Yashica Yashidon-DX 50mm f 1.4 (M42)    50mm    f/2.0    1/320s    ISO 100

A different day but the same place, possibly the last picture where I catch the sunrise (at least on my way to work). I could have cropped tighter but the little bush on the left and the little tree on the right feel like anchors that keep the attention on the church but without being a distraction as they are way out of the DoF, panorama as well.
