Welcome !

My name is David Roossien. I am a landscape photographer from Grand Rapids, Michigan. Welcome to my online gallery.
at Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore

I enjoy Lake Michigan and exploring the Michigan landscape. An amazing stretch of beach and a little creek between Grand Haven and Holland gets much of my attention. I live on the West Coast of Michigan and enjoy many dazzling sunsets each year. The distinctly yellow, sandy beaches of Michigan are my favorite subject. At sunset, the yellow sand often turns a rich, brown sugar color. I also enjoy the rocky and rugged coastlines of the Michigan's Upper Peninsula, the East, or West Coasts of the USA. I love to travel and explore new areas that provide fresh subjects to photograph.

While browsing through the gallery you might notice a few things about my work. Many photographs feature geometry, patterns and a bold use of lines. Some of these compositional tendencies flow naturally from my engineering background. Some scenes are of a playful nature and feature abstraction. I enjoy beautiful landscape photographs as much as anyone, but prefer to present more than just breathtaking scenery in my photographs. There are such a variety of themes in nature--moments of spectacular beauty, powerful drama, but also peace and rest. Hopefully, you will discover these and many more feelings while browsing through the gallery.

Thank you to friends, coworkers and family who have endured my obsession, encouraged and supported me through the years. Whether you are new to my work or a frequent visitor I encourage you to explore the site and share it with friends. Please contact me if you have any questions or comments. Enjoy your visit!
