“Catch the mist, catch the myth
Catch the mystery, catch the drift.”

~ Rush


All photographs are HDR (High Dynamic Range) imagesThey were taken at Lake Livingston Texas, at approximately 6:30 am after a drastic temperature change occurred. 



Growing up in Green Brook NJ, Michael J. Slevens had an early start in photography. His father had a dark-room in their garage and helping him develop black and white pictures is one of Michael’s earliest and fondest memories. In high school, Michael took every photography class that was offered. However, just as it is today, it’s always remained just a hobby. Five years ago, Michael re-located to Houston (Texas) with his wife, Lisa, and he takes every opportunity he can to create landscape photographs.
