Ghost Rocks

My favorite use of long exposure isn’t waterfalls, but waves on a regular beach. I love what it does for waves washing over rocks or logs, etc. The smokey effect is pretty awesome. The trick is that it makes a huge difference exactly when the shot is taken. It’s probably a good situation to use […]

Front Row Sunset

Another example of “ninja street photography” for when you’re too shy to let people know you’re taking photos of them in public. It might be easy to miss in the shot, but there’s a couple here watching the sunset. One of the things you can almost always find at Marquette’s Presque Isle. I was also […]

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 […]
