I wanted to capture the view from the chasm in the rocks but, to do so would require me to go in the frigid waters of Lake Superior. My solution: use my drone to get down and shoot from about three feet above the water. The water makes for a nice leading line to the colorful sky.
Sometimes you have to make a run for the lake when you think there might be a good sunrise. Today was pretty good.

I’ve been missing from the blogasphere for awhile. I could blame it on many things but, I’ll just say, “That’s 2020!” I’m hoping to start making a return to my art, creating new images and sharing on my various media sites. I am hopeful that the remainder of this year and the new year provide more opportunities to get out and explore the world with my cameras. One fun thing that has changed in my tool bag for 2020 is I now have a drone. I invested in a DJI Mavic Air 2 this past summer and have been working at putting it to good use to capture images that I could not get being land based. Those images will be showing up in this blog starting now.
After a week on the road capturing images from the Oregon coast to Minnesota, I have created a gallery of photos on my website. Rather than creating the same gallery on my blog, here is the link to the site: http://northernvisionsmedia.com/?page_id=2727
Across the Salmon River, north of Stanley, ID, and on the other side of the road, atop the power line, eagles had built an enormous nest and were tending to their young.
The barn in which the owl was hiding from the bright light of day.
While photographing an abandoned old barn in Mackay, Idaho, I spotted this owl perched on the rafter.
