Ice & Sky

I posted a similar shot a few weeks back, but I liked this one too and couldn’t choose between them. This one doesn’t have the extra piles of ice in the background, but allows more focus on the roots and bark texture. Similar elements, but a different focus. (And by focus I mean attention, not […]

Breaking Ground

For a few winters I’ve made the drive over to the Lake Erie shoreline at Magee Marsh just East of Toledo… it’s no Lake Superior shoreline, but every now and then the ice still does something interesting. This particular day that I was there, things looked somewhat bleak overall, not a lot to draw the […]

When the weather is right in Marquette, you can see some pretty impressive waves off the shore of Presque Isle. My fingers suffered for the time I spent snapping shots this particular morning, and if my son […]

I ended up roaming around a few corners I hadn’t explored before, and found a neat statue […]
