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.


A Lovely Day at the Beach

There’s nothing like a little sun, a lot of water and some time to wander the shoreline.  Even in the cold of northern Minnesota there is reason to explore the nooks and crannies of the rocky shore of Lake Superior.  Being an ice hunter, I go searching for the creations of nature while they persist, but knowing that what exists today will be gone tomorrow.  However, in it’s place will be new creations formed by wind, water and cold.
