Rainbow Bridge

Download: Rainbow_Bridge_Asgard_Photography_IMG_7768.jpg I wasn’t going to post this one at first, as it was almost kind of an accident, I hadn’t framed up the shot I was going for. But, through accident I got my favorite lens flare that I’ve shot. It wasn’t so much as a combination of camera settings as having “just the right” […]

Rooted in Winter

Download: Rooted_in_Winter_Asgard_Photography_IMG_7424.jpg I’ve photographed these roots a few times, though I don’t think I’ve had a shot I’ve posted here before… I was tempted to add a bunch of clouds to the sky in this one… but resisted the urge.  This photo is a good example of when I like to use a lower camera angle, […]

Black Rocks Reflections

Download: Black_Rocks_Reflections_Asgard_Photography_IMG_7796.jpg The bigger puddles are good for reflecting the sky and clouds, but the smaller ones can create more interesting lines and shapes… with a shot like this I usually end up taking at least ten from different angles trying to figure out what I like best.  Camera Settings Camera: Canon EOS 80D F-stop: f/13 […]

Foggy Field

Download: Foggy_Field_Asgard_Photography_IMG_7010.jpg When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. In this case, when you have to get up at the butt crack of dawn to drive your kid to school, bring your camera with in case you find a patch of fog in a field you can take pictures of.  This photo is another example of […]

Empty Spaces

Download: Empty_Spaces_Asgard_Photography_IMG_7413.jpg I think empty benches always look so lonely. It feels like they represent someone who gave up on waiting. The effect is amplified for me here with the overcast grey and the steady erosion of lakeshore.  Camera Settings Camera: Canon EOS 80D F-stop: f/13 Exposure: 1/200 seconds ISO: 640 Focal Length: 40mm

Stone and Mirror

Download: Stone_and_Mirror_Asgard_Photography_IMG_7759.jpg One of my favorite spots for sunsets, Black Rocks at Presque Isle in Marquette (Upper Michigan). Especially when the waves of Lake Superior have left huge puddles up in the rocks along the lakeshore that make for great mirrors… twice the clouds and light for the same price. 🙂  The big risk, though, is […]

Pieces of Winter

DOWNLOAD: Pieces_of_Winter_Asgard_Photography_IMG_7454.jpg Looking South from the edge of Black Rocks in Marquette’s Presque Isle (the frozen edge of Lake Superior)… I typically prefer horizontally framed shots, but a vertical framing allowed for more of the “pancake ice” in the foreground. While the camera is at eye level here, I’m standing about 30 feet up from the […]

Evening Adventure

DOWNLOAD: Evening_Adventure_Asgard_Photography_IMG_7812.jpg The Black Rocks area of Presque Isle (in Marquette, Michigan) is great for sunsets most days, but especially when the waves have left pools of water up in the rocks, to reflect the sun and sky. When I’m there, I probably take about a hundred shots for every one that I end up liking, […]
