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.

The Old Shed

For several years I’ve been driving past this old shed and on this snowy October day finally stopped and photographed it.  As I waded through the knee deep snow I chastised myself for not doing this before we had an early winter storm.  But, it you don’t go, you don’t get the shot.

“Well I’m a going back down
Maybe one more time,
Deep down home,
October road.”
~ James Taylor

I’m a bit obsessed with autumn, it’s my favorite season here in New England. For a peek at some fall color, come on over and visit me on my personal blog – Licht Years.

Have a great week, everyone!
