Back To The Lake

While keeping you distracted for the last two weeks I’ve had time to create some new work.  On November 10th, Split Rock Lighthouse was lit to commemorate the 43rd  anniversary of the sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald in Lake Superior, plus remembering all the lives lost on the lake over the years.  As part of the ceremony the light is lit for a few hours in the evening.

Since the sun wouldn’t work with me, I chose to push the colors a bit to achieve the desired effect.  I think if the light had been a bit brighter, the image would have a more natural tone.

Like A Starry Night

A quick glance at the car window, inspiration dawns and magic happens.

Snow Day

On a whim, I took a short drive on a snowy day to see what I might see.  Snow was falling, the temp just barely above zero and large chunks of ice were floating on Lake Superior.  As I drove along a gravel road, the snow dusted shrubs caught my attention.

But Baby, It’s Cold Outside!

The temp was -12F when I ran from my warm car to capture a few shots before dashing back the the warmth of my heated seat.  The water of Lake Superior is warmer than the air which produces the mist, also known as sea smoke.
