Winter Waving

What looks colder than water splashing around ice and snow? Lake Superior can be a frigid thing. I’ve always been drawn to the opposite of the “spaghetti” style of shooting water (used often on waterfalls)… opposite in that by using a faster shutter speed, the water gets broken into particles and creates all kinds of […]

Nuclear Ice

Another photo that wasn’t overall super impressive for it’s own sake, but I really liked the one bit of ice that looked like a nuclear explosion. ūüôā¬† Shooting ice and sunshine is always fun, but difficult to get right when you don’t pay attention to pesky things like white balance. But it often creates opportunity […]

Change is Coming

Download:¬†Change_is_Coming_Asgard_Photography_IMG_7435.jpg If a rainbow symbolizes a promise of something positive, I’m not sure what the clouds behind it are saying… maybe “psych”? 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 […]

Empty Spaces

Download: Empty_Spaces_Asgard_Photography_IMG_7413.jpg I think empty benches always look so lonely. It feels like they represent someone who gave up on waiting. The effect is amplified for me here with the overcast grey and the steady erosion of lakeshore.  Camera Settings Camera: Canon EOS 80D F-stop: f/13 Exposure: 1/200 seconds ISO: 640 Focal Length: 40mm

Wagner Falls Thawing

DOWNLOAD:¬†Wagner_Falls_Thawing_Asgard_Photography_IMG_7534.jpg One of the many great things about the Upper Peninsula of Michigan is the number of waterfalls you can get to without too much trouble. This photo was taken at Wagner Falls in Munising, just off the main road, with only a few hundred feet walk from the parking area. I’ve always found it […]

Spirits of the Snow

DOWNLOAD:¬†Spirts_of_the_Snow_Asgard_Photography_IMG_7506.jpg I was having a hard time finding a shot I liked along the shoreline on the day I shot this, and while I wouldn’t put this one up against many as an “amazing photo” or anything, I ended up really liking it because it fell within a fun “accidental” category of photos… every now […]

Ice & Sky

I posted a similar shot a few weeks back, but I liked this one too and couldn’t choose between them. This one doesn’t have the extra piles of ice in the background, but allows more focus on the roots and bark texture. Similar elements, but a different focus. (And by focus I mean attention, not […]
