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.
A view of the entrance to the Duluth harbor. Ships from all over the Great Lakes and the world visit the port every year.
Light the gap.

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.
While photographing an abandoned old barn in Mackay, Idaho, I spotted this owl perched on the rafter.

It would have been a much more peaceful evening if the mayflies hadn’t been in the middle of a major hatch and the mosquitoes hadn’t been so thick. But, that’s northern Minnesota for you.
This will be my last post from Minnesota this month as I am headed to Oregon later this week for an extended photo trip. I will be beginning with a sunset composition along the coast and then be driving back through the mountains, visiting Yellowstone and, I hope, Devil’s Tower. I am also planning to shoot some prairie homesteads and wide open spaces in the Dakotas.
Playing with arrangements and allowing the waves to wash over and add shine.
Early morning in a summer garden to capture the last iris before it fades, plus a poppy and a Peony.
