The legend lives on…this is Lake Superior, referred to by the Chippewa Indians as “Gitche Gumee” – the Big Lake. I took this photograph in the upper peninsula of Michigan, near Little Presque Isle outside of Marquette. If that’s too far to drive, you can always visit my galleries at Pixels and Redbubble to enjoy The Great Lakes.
It’s often said that a person can never go home again; that is, everything changes with time. Memories fade, often becoming embellished and romanticized, and the environment from which recollections stem are also altered. Yet, with a refined sense of appreciation – and, at just the right moment – magic can happen.
This was my experience upon returning to the shores of Lake Superior, the place of my childhood, as seen here – outside the city of Marquette, in Michigan’s upper peninsula, along the beach near Little Presque Isle.
The dynamism of a shoreline governed by powerful forces of nature – i.e., Lake Superior – provided a compelling, beautiful visual and spiritual experience, beyond my reminiscence. A great day, indeed!

The sea was angry that day, my friends – like an old man trying to send back soup in a deli.
Ever changing sands and stones along the shores of Lake Superior, shaped by unpredictable waves of white water, welcome both the tourist and beachcomber to absorb the beauty of Michigan’s upper peninsula.
