I’ve found that when taking a day to bum around with my camera, that it’s important to occasionally stop, take a break and absorb the incredible beauty I live so close to. On a day such as this, I was gifted with many photo ops, but also with awe inspiring scenes to take home as memories. I truly am lucky to live where I do and cherish every moment I get to spend visiting locations, not only along the shore of Lake Superior, but also the forests and rivers in the area.
