Sunset Point

I’ve probably taken more photos of sunsets from Marquette’s Presque Isle than anywhere else. It’s an awesome place to hang out, though it seems like it’s been getting more crowded as the years go by… Marquette is getting too well known. I read somewhere a while ago that landscape photos without people in them are […]

Not Quite Lost

“Street” photography makes me uncomfortable because I don’t like to impose on people or invade their space. So when I do take pictures with people in them, I tend to be sneaky about it. (Which is today’s day and age is probably a recipe for disaster.) I did actually make some business cards so that […]

Driftwood Sky

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 […]

Stoic Pines

As much as I love Lake Superior, I can’t imagine trying to stand next to it season after season. These trees are tougher than they look. This was taken on a quick stop during my travel out of town after a weekend visit. The weather was getting pretty intense and I was trying to beat […]

Air Roots

I’m not sure which is worse in life… having problems spring up suddenly by surprise, or being able to see them coming from miles away. I imagine if trees could worry, these would be having all sorts of long lasting anxiety attacks. I’m often impressed at the hardiness and life along the shores of Lake […]

Yin and Yang

On my last trip to Marquette, the road that runs around Presque Isle hadn’t been opened for the season yet, so I had to walk about a mile to get out to the area near Black Rocks. I was glad I did, since there were some interesting ice/snow formations that were gone within two days […]

Frozen Woods

I’ve tried a handful of times to visit Marquette’s Black Rocks (at Presque Isle) before sunrise, to catch the sun coming up over Lake Superior. I’ve only manage it once where there weren’t too many clouds to actually see some sun. As a result, I’ve played around a lot with long exposure images, since it […]

Presque Isle Sunset

I wasn’t really sure I liked the end result with this photo, but ironically when I printed it on canvas I found I liked it much better. On the computer screen, I think I feel critical because of the amount of editing and noise involved… but the texture of the canvas somehow smooths that out. […]
