Big Bright Ball

Bright sun and interesting clouds highlighting the St. Louis River.  I used the orange lens of my sunglasses as a filter on my Sony RX100V to bring out the texture of the clouds.

Magical Skies

When the lakes are calm, they become mirrors, reflecting the real world above, creating magical effects to dazzle the eye and mind.

Time with Trees

After a couple of trips to the big city, it feels good to spend some time away from the hubbub of metropolitan energy and spend a bit of time in the northern woods.

July Sky

July skies in the northland are often changing as quickly as the weather changes.  A nice day by Lake Superior can turn on you in a heartbeat.  Within minutes, the temperature can drop by 20 or more degrees as the wind shifts around from the east off the lake.  Even on an eighty degree day you need to keep a jacket handy for such occasions.

Reflections On A Lake

Water.  It’s life giving, a retreat, a place to float under the sun, a place to fish and so much more.  And, at times, it can be a mirror to reflect land and sky.  Most of my life has been spent living on the shore of a lake, near a creek or river or close enough to be impacted by its presence.  I have seen water in its various forms throughout the seasons.  I am at home near water.  When the surface of water is calm, it gives the viewer a chance to look down into the sky, rather than up, it’s like a trip through the looking glass.
