Wet Winter

I’d recently picked up a 24mm fixed lens I wanted to try out (not an expensive lens, but I got it to force myself to move more instead of relying on the zoom lens) and spent some time before and after Thanksgiving freezing my butt of in Marquette. I’d wished the days weren’t as cloudy, […]

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 […]

Smooth Shores

There were several different framings of similar shots that I got on an evening after I’d checked into my motel. (Lake Superior was right on the other side of the road, so I of course had to take advantage of the lower evening light for some long exposure images.) I’d been playing with the settings, […]

Air Roots

I’m not sure which is worse in life… having problems spring up suddenly by surprise, or being able to see them coming from miles away. I imagine if trees could worry, these would be having all sorts of long lasting anxiety attacks. I’m often impressed at the hardiness and life along the shores of Lake […]

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, […]

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 […]
