Shores of Lake Superior

Shores of Lake Superior

Nature, Photography December 2, 2018

It’s often said that a person can never go home again. That is, everything changes with time. Even memories fade. In fact, some recollections can become embellished to such a degree that they seem more wonderful than reality might otherwise have one believe. In such instances, a visit to a place from the past can fall flat in the face of one’s romanticized vision. Yet, with a different sense of appreciation – and at just the right moment – magic can happen and memories may be bested.

That was my experience, here. This rough shoreline strewn with rocks and driftwood is located on the shores of Lake Superior, in Michigan’s upper peninsula, north of Marquette at Little Presque Isle. Growing up in the area during my childhood, I had the opportunity to visit this spot several times over the years, as well as on a few occasions during my travels as an adult. 

It should be noted that the shores of Lake Superior are dynamic, constantly changing as a result of storms and the seasons. That said, and while I’d always considered this spot a place of beauty, I was astounded during a visit in later years (this photograph) that the shoreline was even more compelling than I remembered – something I couldn’t have imagined until that day!

A great day, indeed. If you’d be interested in owning a print of this Michigan landscape, then please visit my gallery at Fine Art America. A variety of print types are available – framed, canvas, art, wood, metal and acrylic. I’ve also added this image to my gallery at Zazzle, where other items may be found.

I hope that you will enjoy this rugged, ever-changing landscape of Michigan’s upper peninsula on Lake Superior. Thanks for stopping by!

Snow In The Woods

Nature, Photography November 18, 2018

Although falling snow can sometimes serve as an impediment for good photographs – large, blurred streaks – my walk today in the snow covered forest was a pleasant excursion into nature, where I found several nice winter scenes along the way. The trail I followed is located at Island Drive Park in Ann Arbor, Michigan, meandering aside the Huron River near the soccer fields of Fuller Park.

It may be night, but there’s still so much to see – simply look around. If you happen to see several eyeballs defying gravity while attached to gold chains, however, you might want to turn the boat around and paddle really fast! And, when you have a chance, stop by my galleries to find some fun items available:

Sunrise Over The Huron River

Sunrise Over The Huron River

Nature, Photography July 2, 2018

Perhaps twilight, not sunrise, better describes this early hour on the Huron River in Ann Arbor, Michigan. So early, in fact, that not a single rower was boating yet – this being a favorite stretch of the river for such exercise. Peaceful and calm, with faint reflections of clouds unbroken, though periodically a fish would surface to stir ripples into the water.
