Adding Color

Like many places in the U.S., northern Minnesota is experiencing forest fires. Depending on the wind direction, Duluth may have nice, clear air or heavy smoke from the fires. On this morning the smoke was blowing down the lake toward Duluth providing us with unhealthy air quality. The upside to the smoke is beautiful sunrises and sunsets.

On the Rocks

Image

After a long absence from my blog, I am finally getting back out to create some new images. I will make no excuses for my absence, it’s just how life has been of late. After all, I sure life has been a bit strange for all of us.

I find this image to be a bit of a jumble, not quite sure where to enter the image, The large rocks at the bottom are one option, the bright white is another, you may find your own way in.

Perspective

This image uses a bit of forced perspective. To get the image I was lying on the ice and doing my best to line up the rising sun with the pieces of ice. The slabs were thin enough to glow as the sun back lit them. Fire and ice.

This was also a five shot bracket using my Canon 5D Mk4, Tamron SP 28-75mm f/2.8, ISO 50, 75mm, f/10

Into the Chasm

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.

Morning by the Lake

Sometimes you have to make a run for the lake when you think there might be a good sunrise. Today was pretty good.
