Sloping Perspective

While visiting the Grand Marais area in the U.P., I’d tried to get some shots around the “Log Slide” area (where they used to get cut trees to the boats.) I wasn’t very successful… it was a bit overcast, and I hadn’t been there before, so wasn’t sure what to try. I almost decided to […]

Making Sand

This is the last one I’m posting from my recent trip to the U.P. where I spent the first evening playing with long exposure shots. This one is actually a bit too over-exposed (so the waves are whiter than I’d like) but I still thought it turned out alright.  Download: Making_Sand-Asgard_Photography-IMG_1960.jpg Camera Settings F-stop: f/22 […]

While staying at the Seacoast Resort on a recent trip to the U.P., I took the opportunity to wander across the road to the Lake Superior shoreline there.

Just about any time I’m between Marquette and Munising I like to stop along the Lake Superior shoreline. Fortunately, this stop there were no black-flies, and a few different excuses to haul my camera around. At first I was frustrated with this driftwood because I couldn’t figure out how to compose a shot I liked, […]
