Hello and thanks for visiting Michael Hoag Photos. I have always enjoyed the outdoors and with photography I have found a way to share it as I see it. I truly believe that each photograph is really a "moment" in time that will never happen again. The beauty of God's creation is all around us if one would just stop and enjoy it and that one "moment" can be captured in photography.
I hope you enjoy my photos most of which have been taken in my home state of Kansas. Most of what I present is of nature. I like to capture wildlife, sunrises and sunsets, the night sky as well as the ever changing weather. I also will take photos of other "stuff" along the way if it catches my eye. Please note that I do crop some images to allow for different composition and those photos may not be available in larger print formats. I try to only crop when I see an element in an image that is worth capturing when other parts may have not turned out the way I wanted. These lower resolution images still can make a nice small print or card. Please come back from time to time as I will be updating often. Thanks again and please go out and “Enjoy the Great Outdoors”
