Clouds & Ice

When is a picture of a lighthouse even cooler than a lighthouse? When it’s hidden by frozen waves. When the weather is right in Marquette, you can see some pretty impressive waves off the shore of Presque Isle. My fingers suffered for the time I spent snapping shots this particular morning, and if my son […]

Ice Splash

Now this would have been a great shot if there were a big boat out there… lol, but I like the ice and rocks and splashing… this feels like a good example of what winter in Marquette feels like.

Sometimes it’s not hard to understand why they put a fence in place at the shore end of the breakwater to keep people from walking out during bad weather… these aren’t the biggest waves Lake Superior can throw at you, and even these would be plenty strong enough to sweep you right into the water.
