Birch Twins

I probably would have liked this shot better further into summer with some green… but then without that you can see more sky, too. In either case, I really wish this was the view from my back yard! This was across the highway from the Seacoast Resort on 28 near Au Train. Download: Birch_Twins-Asgard_Photography-IMG_2169.jpg Camera […]

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 […]

Smooth Shores

There were several different framings of similar shots that I got on an evening after I’d checked into my motel. (Lake Superior was right on the other side of the road, so I of course had to take advantage of the lower evening light for some long exposure images.) I’d been playing with the settings, […]

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 […]

Persistence

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. The evening I checked in, the lighting was perfect for some longer exposure shots of the waves. While the “spaghetti effect” with waterfalls is very commonly seen, […]

The Leaves Left

Sometimes with a photo I go back and forth on whether I like it or not. This one is one of those. Ultimately, I’m drawn back by the combination of the sharp lines in the branches and the smoothness of the reflection. I also like the opposing lightness of the branches and the darkness of […]

Erie Winter

Another version of a similar shot I posted recently… the same corner at Magee Marsh, but after about 15 minutes, the strong wind had completely changed the cloud structure and much more blue was visible. It felt very backward, given that there is no blue in the water. This is also pulled back a bit […]
