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 […]

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 […]

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, […]
