One step at a time, moving into a new day of golden promise.
Sunlight leaks through the clouds setting Lake Superior aglow.

I love the textures in this image. The grass in the foreground, the reflected clouds and the sunlight capping it off at the top. Also, the shape of the clouds gives the illusion of depth to the center of the image, making it seem almost three dimensional.
I recently spent a couple days at a northern Minnesota lake doing a bit of fishing and, of course, a bit of photography. There’s something about early morning and late afternoon light on water that is hard to resist. Especially when the water is smooth and the clouds contribute to the composition.
One of my favorite ways to start the day, sit by the shore of Lake Superior and capture a few images.
