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 […]

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 […]
