New Release – Sensations of Superior


Sensations of Superior – North Shore of Lake Superior near Covill, Minnesota

There are a number of offshore small islands and rocks that dot the landscape of Lake Superior's North Shore. Few are as beautiful is this one, with its lovely grouping of trees, situated several miles northeast of Grand Marais, MN. Given the incredible nature of this place, I am a bit ashamed to admit that I had only visited it one other time (about five years ago) before making this image last fall.

On this recent visit, the conditions were about as good as I could ask for. The sunrise was brilliant, and good-sized waves were lapping at the rocky coast. I love showcasing the energy of the lake in my photographs and choose shutter speeds that convey this feeling in a visually pleasing way. The sun gives this image a strong visual metaphor as it is the source of [almost] all light and energy here on Earth.
