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.
Woke up early to be by Lake Superior for the sunrise. Well worth giving up some sleep.
Cold morning air meets the slightly warmer water of Lake Superior.
Worth the numb fingers and toes. Stoney Point along the shore of Lake Superior.
At the very point of Stoney Point along the north shore of Lake Superior was the dividing line of open water and ice.
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.
Do you ever have those moments when you are out capturing images and get so entranced by the beauty of the scene you almost forget to press the shutter?
One of my favorite ways to start the day, sit by the shore of Lake Superior and capture a few images.
