I was tempted to photoshop some cooler waves into this… Lake Superior often messes with me. When I’m not there, I see photos posted on Facebook where the waves are several feet high, but as soon as I roll into town she calms right down. When you’re only in town for a few days, it’s hard to catch the perfect setting. I just need to move back. 🙂
One of the reasons I like shooting in winter is the lack of bugs… to get this, I had to pay with many bug bites to my legs as I crawled on the beach to get the right angle. Not sure if they were black flies or something similar, but they hurt like a mf.
Probably the best “trick” I ever learned for photography was to change the angle or perspective. You can take two similar shots, one from normal eye level and one from very low or some other angle, and get a majorly different result. The eye level shots are almost always boring. Making an impact is easier when it’s not what everyone normally sees.
