Making Sand

This is the last one I’m posting from my recent trip to the U.P. where I spent the first evening playing with long exposure shots. This one is actually a bit too over-exposed (so the waves are whiter than I’d like) but I still thought it turned out alright.  Download: Making_Sand-Asgard_Photography-IMG_1960.jpg Camera Settings F-stop: f/22 […]

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 […]

Hunting Overkill

When you visit Lakenenland, one of the first things you’ll find (after the large dinosaur with a fish) is a gun boat in the pond by the entrance. I honestly hadn’t expected to see a boat with a machine gun that day. My guess is that if you’re duck hunting, this is probably more firepower […]
