Superior’s Wrath

When Gitche Gummi gets her undies in a bunch, you need to give her a wide berth.  Today’s (Oct. 10) high winds once again stirred up the “Big Lake” and she put on a show for those brave or foolish enough to venture near for a closer look.  Waves were reported to be as high as 28 feet and much damage was done to the beaches and lakewalk. I also learned today that my current rain gear is not up to the task of these conditions and I need to carry more towels for keeping lenses dry.  Ultimately I could not keep up with the spray and had to quit.   I was totally soaked through my rain gear and all my camera gear needed to be dried out. Even with all that, it was, as always, an exhilarating experience.

Island of Dreams

NVM00094-Edit

I dream of a place I visited last summer.  A place of peace and tranquility.  The gentle sound of water, of birds, of the breeze in the trees and the hum of insects in the evening.  OK, the insects were a bit of a nightmare.

A Study of Six Broken Windows

This is a merger of two different panels of three small windows, combined to create the piece of art.  The play of light on each distinctly different pane gives rise to six unique compositions.

Shot with a Canon 7D, shuffled around via Photoshop, Lightroom and Silver Efex Pro 2.

Entrance Around Side

The abandoned I 94 Cafe, located just off the interstate, somewhere near Bismark, North Dakota.  I’ve been spending a lot of time driving around North Dakota lately, but haven’t had the time to stop and capture many of the sights that have caught my eye.  I’m planning to take a week or so next year and explore northwestern Minnesota and the Dakota’s at harvest time when there are so many opportunities for contrasting colors.  I also discovered that due to the flat nature of the area, the sunsets last much longer than they do in the part of Minnesota I live in.
