Lost in a Frozen Woodland

Cold, so very cold.  Not the kind of day anyone should venture out without proper preparation.  It goes beyond being uncomfortable, it’s not just that you can harm your body, it’s the kind of cold that can kill the unprepared.  Take it seriously.

At The Edge

At the very point of Stoney Point along the north shore of Lake Superior was the dividing line of open water and ice.

The Old Fish House

Knowing that today was the last day before the bitter cold arrived and was planning to stay for an extended visit, I grabbed my camera bag and headed out.  My goal was to find the spot where there was open water on Lake Superior.  The open water line was at Stoney Point, which is a little over 20 miles from my home in Duluth.  At Stoney Point is an old fish house that is a favorite of photographers from everywhere and I have photographed several times.  The seasons, the sky and the lake all add to the backdrop of the old structure and each person finds a unique perspective when they visit.

Outside the Glass

When nature and schedules make getting out to do photography challenging, I find alternatives to satisfy my need to create.  Light filtering through the bushes outside a basement window presents layers of line, shape and texture to catch the eye.
