I made a trip up north last week to focus on the fall colors and my landscape work. This is where my passion in photography truly resides and it is ironic how much time I spend doing everything but landscape photography. When I get around to it, it feels like coming home. Once I shake off the city armor that a lot of us urban types don, and it takes a good day or two, life becomes in sharper focus, the questions change and little concerns seem to melt away. Everything feels right.
I have lots of work to process and share, but while I was there, I made a point to make some videos for this blog. It occurred to me that while I can talk about how great a waterfall is, it is different to *HEAR* the waterfall too. I can talk about the roar but you will understand so much better if you hear it yourself. Can you feel the misty spray of water on your face and arms, so fine you can't see it but you feel it's presence?

Here is a video of the waves coming in and out of Lake Superior one morning. Please enjoy a 43 second power vacation.

I have a bunch of blogs that are in draft form right now, so while I develop those ideas a little more, I thought I would talk about a couple of images from last Fall.
When I traveled up north I spent the night in a hotel on Lake Superior. I have never stayed on one of the Great Lakes before, and the really cool thing about it was that when I left my sliding balcony door open, I closed my eyes and just listened, the waves made the same sound as ocean waves do. It sounds silly when I put it in words but it felt pretty neat to have that experience in Minnesota.
I also really liked watching the moonshine on the lake. Here are a few images of that including two with my Singh-Ray Gold-n-Blue Polarizer.
I am a photographer who lives in Minnesota. I blog about Minnesota, photography, music, food and miscellaneous topics.
