Maureen and I just returned from Pukaskwa National Park, Sunday night. We spent a week camping in this beautiful location. I spent the week photographing and capturing the rugged shorelines of Lake Superior. I had issues with the weather as it was wet and damp for the first part of the trip. Temperatures were cool at night. One evening it was 7 C. The mosquitoes were about during the evenings. Daytime temperatures ranged from 18 to 20 C.
There was one evening when I had almost calm weather for my evening photographing. The above shot is from that evening. It is a good example of the coastline of Lake Superior. The grey rocks here are covered in lichens of various types. I love the reddish orange lichen that boldly contrasts with the grey and black rocks. The sun was below the horizon, allowing for a pinkish cast in the sky. Clouds were a bit scarce, but I was able to wait until the clouds you see in this photograph appeared. They help fill in an otherwise bland sky. I also kept the sky to a minimal.
The wind was quite strong the last half of the week. This created issues with photographing in the evening. Blurry wind blown trees do not make for a good landscape shot. Another factor was that clouds were scarce. Well that is it for this week as I have more photos to process from the trip. Until next time happy trails

I need to find some different words to describe your art!

Thank you Maryrose. It is my hope that I can give people a view of Mother Nature that they do not see.
you are succeeding …
I explore Mother Nature as it is very much part of my life
but to capture such incredible moments …I wish!
Thank you gain Ken…
Hi Ken … I met you in Pukaskwa ( remember Mark?). What you told me about the light being ”flat” was something I did not realize until I got home. So many of my ‘snaps’ were better from the same place time etc but last year were a month later. It was great chatting with you and more importantly learning.
I mentioned sending a photo for you to ”adjust” but how ?
Nice to hear from you Mark. Glad that I could help.
Maureen and I are going back up early Oct to Superior Provincial Park
We are going to do the Fenton Lake canoe trip.
Bringing my canoe this time.
