Probably not what you were expecting!
A deserted beach on Mackinac Island, Michigan on the shores of Lake Huron.
There is this spectacular limestone arch on Mackinac Island in Michigan. I had a leisurely stroll around the island yesterday after hiring a bicycle. The 8 mile circumnavigation of the island offers lovely views of Lake Michigan (more photos from that later). For now, here’s a picture of Arch Rock.
Sometimes a picture looks better than the real thing. When I shot this, I didn’t think it looked all that impressive. Processing the bracketed shots as HDR makes this scene of a path lined with trees look serene and tranquil. The noisy tourists were all behind me at this stage :).

The world must seem enormous to this small insect on a fruit!
Photographed at the Dinosaur Valley State Park in Texas. Please drop me a line if you know what this fruit it (about 2cm across).
HDR of a set of steps leading from the River Walk to the city above. San Antonio, Texas. Photos taken at -2, 0 and +2 stops, then merged and processed in Photomatix Pro.
What is it about the serene bubbling sounds of water that so calm the human mind? Does it hark back to millions of years to our origin from water to land?
