Sunrise In the Beginning

In the Beginning by James Meyer Photography

Sunrise, Halloween morning, October 31, 2016 in Port Washington, WI, more specifically, Veterans Memorial Park. I call this image, “In the Beginning” for several reasons.  Sunrise marks the beginning of a new day.  But this particular location also boasts a outlet of some type of water pipe which dispatches rain water into the lake.  I’m not really sure about the details but it makes a great location to make images of Lake Michigan, the Port Washington lighthouse.

South Beach Black and White

Power Plant in Wisconsin

Winter Beach in Port Washington Wisconsin by James Meyer Photography It finally warmed up, in a manner of speaking, to a delightful 20 degrees.  After many days of temperatures in the single digits and wind chills well below zero, 20 degrees with no wind felt almost balmy, almost.  What do you do in warm weather?  That’s right, head to the beach.

On The Edge

On The Edge by James Meyer Photography in Port Washington

“On the Edge” North Beach, Port Washington, WI., January 15, 2016 I call this shoot “On the Edge” as I was literally on the edge of Lake Michigan for all these shots.  At one point when some higher waves reached up and grabbed me.  On the Edge also refers the natural elements of these images.  The sea and land meet.  Temperatures rise and dive, dancing above and below the freezing mark.
