Future Sand

Download: Future_Sand_Asgard_Photography_IMG_8013.jpg I had to wade through about a foot of water to get to this location… there’s a rest stop off the highway that has a nice shoreline stretch to wander, but then there’s a small river letting out into the lake that you have to cross to get over to this little cove. In […]

Change is Coming

Download: Change_is_Coming_Asgard_Photography_IMG_7435.jpg If a rainbow symbolizes a promise of something positive, I’m not sure what the clouds behind it are saying… maybe “psych”? That bank of clouds was actually moving toward shore at a pretty decent clip… I ended up not staying long past this shot, because I had to walk about two miles back to […]

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

Sunset Reader

DOWNLOAD: Sunset_Reader_Asgard_Photography_IMG_7778.jpg I’m still not super comfortable about “street photography”, though I forced myself to ask this woman if I could take a few photos, when I saw her sitting and reading on the rocks while I was there to try to capture the sunset. I was really happy with the results, though I have no […]

Sunset Point

I would give almost anything for this to be the view from my back yard. What I like about this photo specifically is how the clouds and rocks seem to mirror each other in general shape. Also, shooting a longer exposure allows for the “soft” feel of the water which just makes this feel relaxing […]
