Once again, if nature provides the subject, who am I to not document the beauty?

The Wild Side of Lake Superior

High winds from the northeast are building big waves on Lake Superior today and everyone is out enjoying the view.

Fragile Moments

Spotting the simple aspects of nature requires a keen sense of awareness in the moment. I discovered this fragile bit of ice close to melting away on a warm, early spring afternoon.  Shortly after taking the shot, I broke through the ice on Lake Superior.  Lucky for me I was close to shore and the water was shallow.  In the moment, my first concern was for my camera, which I was able to keep safe and set on a rock as I extricated myself from the ice.

Crushed Ice

I’ve had some questions about the amount of ice piled along the shore of Lake Superior near Duluth, this is just a small sample of conditions as of this past Wednesday.  As winds shift, so will the piles of ice.
