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, […]

Looking for Lunch

Stopped to stretch my legs and point and shoot on my way out of Marquette… I thought it was interesting that with the waves picking up (they were getting bigger while you watched) the seagulls were looking for lunch. I’m guessing the waves kick up more food options? This was the last photo I took […]

A Superior Shoreline

If this was my back yard, I could die happy. I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve stopped along both Lake Superior and Lake Michigan when driving to and from Marquette. Many times before having a camera, but definitely a good number after as well. I don’t know if I’ll ever pull it […]

Ghost Waters

Everyone likes using long exposures for waterfall shots, but I have more fun with the technique along the Lake Superior shoreline. I love the effects you can get from the waves, in the different weather. This one feels to me like a combination of waves and fog rolling in… I like the ethereal quality.  Download: Ghost_Waters-Asgard_Photography_IMG_0510.jpg […]

Bubble Self Portrait

On my quest to find interesting ways to use my crystal ball (since it won’t work for seeing my future) I’ve tried to do a “self portrait” of sorts. That’s me in the center of the ball. I would have used a non-telephoto lens so I could get closer, but the waves made that a […]

Edge of Presque Isle

Trees, stone, and waves… the holy trinity of Lake Superior. If you haven’t been to Marquette, Michigan, you really should visit. And when you do, be sure to spend some time exploring Presque Isle. There are trails along the outside edge that provide some amazing views. (Just be really careful not to fall off!) On […]

Sunset Shoreline

With my previous camera (Canon 70D) I used to do a lot of sunset photos, though the 80D seems to behave differently. I’m not sure if it’s model specific or individual camera specific, or what. In any case, one of my favorite places for sunsets is Presque Isle in Marquette. This was taken from one […]

Rock Bubble

On my latest trip back north to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, my son was patient enough to spend a good chunk of outdoors time while dad lugged his camera gear along. This photo was one of my favorite taken on this trip. I’ve been playing with ways to use the glass ball that would be a […]
