Winter Waving

What looks colder than water splashing around ice and snow? Lake Superior can be a frigid thing. I’ve always been drawn to the opposite of the “spaghetti” style of shooting water (used often on waterfalls)… opposite in that by using a faster shutter speed, the water gets broken into particles and creates all kinds of […]

Future Sand

While the camera is at eye level here, I’m standing about 30 feet up from the […]

Ice Splash

Not the most dramatic shot, but I thought it still caught a feeling.  Download: Ice_Splash-Asgard_Photography_IMG_4213.jpg Camera […]

I have mixed feelings about photos of ore boats. I tend to like nature vs. man-made things, especially industrial things… but sometimes a scene still catches me. In this case, the boat was making pretty good time on it’s way out of the ore docks in Marquette near Presque Isle, and I liked the waves […]
