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.

Bittersweet Memories 2

Superior

 

Bittersweet Memories

You walked out the door

You never said a word

You never came back

All you left

Was bittersweet memories

You never came back

You never came back

You filled my life

With the sound of your laughter

The smile you gave me

Like a candle in the dark

But all you left

Was bittersweet memories

You never came back

You never came back

The house is empty

My life is empty

The walls are silent

Your voice and laughter

Just a memory

All you left

Is bittersweet memories

I listen for the sound

Of your footsteps

But I know

You will never come back

You will never come back

All you left

Is bittersweet memories

You never came back

You never came back

Just Me And My Girl

Sitting on a riverbank

Just me and my girl

The stars are shining

Like diamonds in heaven

The moon is sparkling

On the river’s surface

No wind is blowing

We are sitting, side by side

Holding hands

Stealing a kiss

Now and then

Just me and my girl

We talked about tomorrow

We talked about forever

And more

Rejoicing in our love

Being so young

Just me and my girl

We had not a care

In the world

Basking in the glow

Of our love

With the stars above

Just me and my girl

To be so young

To be so innocent

We talked about tomorrow

We talked about forever

And more

Just me and my girl

Fun With Waves

I was strolling the shoreline of Lake Superior, enjoying a breezy summer afternoon. The waves were picking up in size. Thus I thought would be a good time to capture wave action. It was a fun afternoon. Just shooting away as the waves came in. A beautiful blue sky with some cloud cover.

Later it was a matter of going through the photos and selecting the best ones. I liked the above composition. Lake Superior can give you bigger waves, but you get what you get.

So until next time happy trails.

Shoreline Mood

Dark skies, late evening created the mood that is evident in this particular composition.  A touch of lighting by the setting sun. This is my favourite time of day to get those fine art compositions. Watch the weather, cloud effects, but best of all enjoy a pleasant evening stroll on the shores of Lake Superior.
