Photos That Don’t Need Captions Mike Sepelak  I was looking through my photos this morning and saw an interesting trend. When you take photos you are trying to capture that moment in time.

Extreme Exposures

  Extreme  Exposures  Dispatches from Kirkpatrick Wildlife Photography Vol. 6   No. 2 April  2017 Visit Our Website Outdoor Drama Diorama  In February of 2015, I was invited to a private lodge in rural Mississippi to study an empty space. The lodge owners wanted something unique and dramatic that would represent the natural beauty of Mississippi to fill the second-level blank slate. They asked me to design that “something.”  The area was created when the ceiling over the kitchen was dropped, and would be visible from the spacious downstairs living area and a grand staircase landing. A three-dimensional diorama would … Continue reading Extreme Exposures

Michigan Considers Climate Change Effects Likely on Fish Species

Climate, the long-term pattern of temperature and precipitation, varies greatly from the Upper Peninsula to southern Michigan. This variation in climate creates differences in water temperatures and stream flows across the state which in turn influences where different fish species live, how well they reproduce and grow, and the types of fisheries we see around the state. For example, walleye reproduction is better in northern lakes because those fish experience longer winters and cooler summers which favor this species. Therefore, it’s critical to understand the importance of climate on Michigan lakes and streams and their fisheries, and how future changes … Continue reading Michigan Considers Climate Change Effects Likely on Fish Species

Close Your Eyes by the Stream of Time’s Len Harris 7-11-2016

The Stream Of Time October 06, 2016 Close Your Eyes Long ago my father sat me down in this exact area. We walked quite a ways to get there.  He teased me and built up the place as somewhere very special. All I saw was frozen ground and trees that looked like they might be dead. It was about 50 years ago.  I didn’t see anything special but dad typically had a lesson he wanted to teach me each time we went into the outdoors. This grove of trees are certainly relatives of the ones my dad gave his profound … Continue reading Close Your Eyes by the Stream of Time’s Len Harris 7-11-2016

Where Have They Gone? by The Stream in Time’s Len Harris 6-18-2016

Where have all the tales gone?  The art of spinning a yarn has become almost extinct. The stories and tall tales of my youth are not being passed on.  They are being replaced with video games and I Phones. People that write stories these days are try to impress you with their vocabulary.  Fishing and hunting stories have all turned into how to stories.  The imagination and beauty of the outdoors is lacking in stories these days. The blind possibilities of what lies beneath the water on your next cast should be enough to spawn awe and make you smile. … Continue reading Where Have They Gone? by The Stream in Time’s Len Harris 6-18-2016
