Ice Hunter

As you may have noticed from previous posts, it’s that time of year when I turn my attention to things that are frozen.  Knowing that we have had high winds blowing across Lake Superior, I figured that there would be fresh ice to discover so off I went in search of new work.  My first stop was
Stoney Point, a favorite of many who travel up the north shore of Lake Superior.  I was rewarded with many small pockets of ice that formed wonderful abstract patterns.  I spent over two hours wandering around on the ledge rock photographing as many as I could before all my batteries succumbed to the cold.

Love My Mornings

Do I really need to write anything about this image?  Perhaps the viewer has something to add?  Location: Stoney Point, Lake Superior’s North Shore.

Morning Composition

This morning’s sunrise wasn’t everything I had hoped for, but I discovered this arrangement of grass, rock cut and background.  I was attracted to the leading line that leads the eye from the grass to the arrow in the rock out to the lake and sky.

Superior Dawn

The reward of being willing to get oneself out of bed early in the morning are moments like this.

Canon 5D Mark IV, ISO 50, 15mm, f/10, 3.2 sec and the usual mucking about to achieve the desired effect.

 

Memories of a Distant Lake

Although I’m currently traveling, my mind is never far from the inland sea named Lake Superior.  While having a bit of quiet time before having to go check in on a family member, I searched through my image collection on my iPad and decided to work on the image below using the mobile versions of Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop.  They may not be as robust as the desktop verions, but I was able to arrive at a satisfactory result with a bit of work and even add a watermark (in Photoshop).  It would be nice if I could access the watermarks I’ve created on the desktop version. 

Wind and Water

We have very strong winds in Minnesota today which is causing some serious wave action on Lake Superior.  I took a short drive to a spot just up the shore from Duluth called Stoney Point to see if there was a possible photo op, yep!  Stoney Point is also the location of an old fishing shack, which has probably been photographed by every photographer in the area and beyond.  Everyone has there own take on the relic, I’ve included one of mine.
