Wildflower Field Burn at Barry’s Prairie


My faithful assistant Deb Raffler and I had the awesome opportunity to photograph an intentional field burn, part of a process to bring back Michigan indigenous plant and wildlife. This is the property that I do wildflower portraits and that we often take our photography classes to. From early evening, through a gorgeous sunset and into the darkness, the conditions and dramatic photo-ops kept developing and presenting themselves. I shot over 500 frames and don’t even know where to begin with the variety of interesting choices! Thank you Bill and Gail Barry and the fire crew!!!
