While staying at the Seacoast Resort on a recent trip to the U.P., I took the opportunity to wander across the road to the Lake Superior shoreline there. The evening I checked in, the lighting was perfect for some longer exposure shots of the waves. While the “spaghetti effect” with waterfalls is very commonly seen, I have more fun with it along shorelines like this. I like the smoothing out you get of the areas that are wet but not covered with water, and the smoky effect of the waves themselves.
