Nature speaks in silent actions, take a walk, the soul will hear. Nature Photography Michigan is a photograppy collection that was captured in the moment of inspiration. Its purpose is that a particular photograph will communicate to your soul a needed lesson for you to learn or a message your soul needs to hear, or simply reduced your stress.
"In silence I hear a greater truth." ThirdSon
The mind is not just something that has five senses. The mind is an instrument that can interpret complex lessons from a rather complicated eco system called nature. Nature provides all the lessons you need in life to understand life. Nature is the only school, in the whole earth with all the visual lessons.
The same happened to me on early morning as I stood at the edge of a steep incline looking out over the wetland; this giant bird flew by within a few feet of me and as it did, it filled my mind with conversation. I later discovered his name was Grus Canadensis. Grus had a remarkable story to share with me about the undisciplined human mind.

There are lessons being taught everyday. These lessons are not being conducted in the classroom. Not in any university nor Sunday service. The most important lessons about life and more importantly, the answers to living a more harmonious life, is being taught amongst animals."
Grus - Dragon Life Crane
"To all those who will listen to the silence, be prepared to see the greatest in the smallest of things. Be prepared to have your mind expanded, your meaning of things like, "compassion" redefined as you observe the simple creatures called... animals." —ThirdSon
Monarch Lands & Points the way to GOD
The mis-conception that we have been taught about life itself will be challenged. Nature is your teacher by birthright, it is your mentor through time, it is the link between you and... "the DayStar."
It has been often said that... man is closet to God, when he is close to nature." —ThirdSon

Nature Photography Michigan - Philosophically Speaking
The Many Roads of Nature Photography There are long roads, short roads, far-away distant and right around the corner roads. There are narrow hidden paths, and well traveled wide walk-ways, the camera travels them all. There is nothing to be planned, there is no nature and man coordination. There is no collaboration between nature and photography art; bug, amphibian, bird, or animal. All is happenstance–when paths cross, by chance, being in the right place at the right time. Nature photography in Michigan is the truest of a balanced playing field of equal opportunity; the one sun, one scene, the one moment of cross roads.
Ahh… but does the difference lie in the composition; zooming in close, all the way until the subject fills the frame or zoom out enough to include a large percentage of it surroundings? Is it the when, or what the subject is doing, the where the subject is standing, flying, running or just plain sitting? What is of beauty to the eye of one photographer can be equally perceived the same way in the eye of many different beholders. Very close, tight magnified shots of one birds eye is not identical to the eye of another bird of that same specie. Birds exude individual personalities–just as humans do. A bird’s personality that is captured into the eye of the camera is re-transmited into the eye of a specific beholder. If properly done, the spirit of nature and its environment makes an esoteric connection to the mind... thus begins the conscious awakening.
