Frozen Woods

I’ve tried a handful of times to visit Marquette’s Black Rocks (at Presque Isle) before sunrise, to catch the sun coming up over Lake Superior. I’ve only manage it once where there weren’t too many clouds to actually see some sun. As a result, I’ve played around a lot with long exposure images, since it […]

Presque Isle Sunset

I wasn’t really sure I liked the end result with this photo, but ironically when I printed it on canvas I found I liked it much better. On the computer screen, I think I feel critical because of the amount of editing and noise involved… but the texture of the canvas somehow smooths that out. […]

Jesus In The Fall

Statues in cemeteries fascinate me. The place where my dad is buried doesn’t have a lot of them, but there’s this one very large one of Jesus not too far from his grave, and the white with the orange background stood out to me on my last visit. Only thing better would have been if […]
