Lighthouse at sunset
Shot of Grand Marais lighthouse at sunset, viewing west with sawtooth range in background. Waited 30 minutes for the right lighting for this shot. Created nice color and depth. One of my favorite shots of the lighthouse....almost looks like an HDR image.....isn't light wonderful?
Waterfall at Cascade River State Park, framed by white cedar. Was fun trying to generate the sense of flowing water with slow shutter speed. Lighting was still a little bright though. What we normally consider good lighting for most photos is not so good for these types of shots.....darker, overcast days, or shade are better for these.....but don't leave home without your tripod!

Ring-necked duck pair
Several thousand ringers surrounded my boat blind in spring, coming right up to the boat to check things out, providing lots of photo ops and showed off their courtship behavior. Ring-necks are a common breeding duck in Minnesota, particularly in the northern part of the state where their preferred breeding habitat (sedge bogs) is most prevalent. Ringers are one of the bread and butter ducks for Minnesota's duck hunters during October.

Misty morning harbor
After breakfast with my family on my 20th wedding anniversary, the sun was softly filtered through fog, creating a nice scene with low fog over the water's surface, sailboats and lighthouse at Grand Marais harbor......viewing south toward Gichigami (Lake Superior).
