Superior Shoreline

One of the interesting aspects of photographing the shoreline of Lake Superior are the rock formations. These rocks date back to the volcanic era of Earth. The effects of water and wind has created many interesting shapes.

Lake Superior, Wawa

A beautiful evening on the shores of Lake Superior near Wawa

I traversed Sandy Beach near Wawa one evening.

This was an area that A Y Jackson created some of his paintings

I have added this composition to My Fine Arts page.

It is now available to the public

Pukaskwa National Park. Rugged and wild.

A trip back in time. I am going through my files looking for unpublished photos.

I spent a number of summers alone the great Lake Superior. A great learning experience. Geography, History, Geology and many other things.

This is a very early morning shot . The rugged rocky shoreline. A touch of color

 

Mica Bay, Lake Superior

Mica Bay, Lake Superior. This was one of my enjoyable evenings spent exploring the shoreline of Mica Bay, Lake Superior.

The evening was becoming late as I observed this scene. The lake was rolling gently. The exposure would be long. That would create a dreamy affect on the water. More so in the foreground. I cast around for a suitable collection of rocks at the water’s edge. The composition soon came together in my mind. I set my tripod as low as I could set it. Therefore, allowing me to create an illusion of less water. To tighten the composition I shot vertically. Too much water would spoil the effect of the composition.

I stretched out on the beach. Being eye level showed me my composition as I wanted it. Thus I was able to create my scene.

 

 

The Color Blue

This is a very late evening shot. Thus the slow shutter sped. This creates the effect of smoothing the look of the water surging into shore. The predominant colours here are blue and white. This creates a sense of peace and serenity.  It is a very calming piece to look at. Throw in some rock and shoreline to give added contrast and change of Color. It will open your senses to want to be able to listen to the sounds surrounding you. Use your imagination.

So, till next time happy trails.
