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 […]
One more glass ball photo from a recent trip north… one danger they don’t tell you about ahead of time when using these is how well they work as magnifying lenses. For example, you don’t want to hold one in your hand on a sunny day. Most of the time, in a shot like this […]
I almost didn’t end up using this one… I didn’t get either the clouds/sunset I wanted, or the reflection setup I’d hoped for, but what I like about it is the arc of the rock with a little bit of some people visible toward the end. The area to the lower left is just a […]
For some reason, I find it amusing that the lighthouse seems like an afterthought here. 🙂 When I was at the lake this afternoon, it wasn’t doing anything like it’s normal dramatic self, but in a lot of ways it just felt like an “average typical day” kind of thing, which made it feel worth […]
I’ve always preferred including people in silhouette if I’m taking photos in public that have people in them. My inner introvert is a little to strong and keeps me from getting up in people’s business. But having people in landscape photos really can enhance them greatly. I think this one is a perfect example – […]
This was taken on an evening when the weather wasn’t cooperating (anyone who goes out to photograph landscapes knows how frustrating the weather can be in that regard.) On this trip the sky had been annoyingly free of clouds during sunset time, except for this one night, when for whatever reason they’d roped off the […]
Sometimes a photo just asks to be displayed differently. In this case, for some reason, it looks better to me turned on its side. Made me think of an eyeball – the lake watching for something. The glass balls are fun to play with in various landscape situations… though it’s difficult to be creative with […]
Everyone does long exposure when shooting waterfalls, but I think I like the looks of long exposure on water better with waves. Every time I shoot along Lake Superior’s shoreline, I usually try at least a few of this style of shot.
The part of the Island I wanted to get to was chained off to vehicle traffic, and I didn’t feel like walking the mile or so in that evening, so I opted for a less scenic stretch of shoreline.
