Right Place, Right Time

As I was walking to my car after a bit of shopping, I noticed a woman taking photos with her phone.  When I turned to see what had caught her attention, I quickly grabbed my camera from the car and shot a couple images also.

When nature provides, I’m not going to say no.

Fragile Moments


Spotting the simple aspects of nature requires a keen sense of awareness in the moment. I discovered this fragile bit of ice close to melting away on a warm, early spring afternoon.  Shortly after taking the shot, I broke through the ice on Lake Superior.  Lucky for me I was close to shore and the water was shallow.  In the moment, my first concern was for my camera, which I was able to keep safe and set on a rock as I extricated myself from the ice.

Crushed Ice

I’ve had some questions about the amount of ice piled along the shore of Lake Superior near Duluth, this is just a small sample of conditions as of this past Wednesday.  As winds shift, so will the piles of ice.
