Welcome To My Photography Blog

March 18, 2013

This is a very new thing for me, blogging that is. I have to admit that I’ve not been one to date to spend time looking at photography blogs. I have been searching for photo blogs looking for some direction on how to conduct mine. Some seem narcissistic, some borderline pointless and some trying to present way too much information. I hope to find a middle ground. Please feel free to contact me and give me constructive criticisms and direction or make requests of things you would like to see or have attempt to pontificate on. I hope to post a new blog once every week or two, or at least when I go out on a shoot and have an image to present or event to comment on. Let the blogging commence…

I went up to Good Harbor Bay in Leelanau County Monday March 4th in search of the ice boulders that had been making the news the previous week. After a bit of searching along the length of Lake Michigan Road at the Sleeping Bear lakeshore I found what, at least, was left of the phenomenon. It is not an uncommon occurrence to have large spheres of ice to form along the lakeshore and collect on the beach but it doesn’t happen every week either. The frozen shorelines wherever you go on the great lakes change weekly and even daily so you never know what you will find but it will always be fascinating and beautiful. The first shot is looking west toward Pyramid Point with Manitou Island to the left. Shot with my Nikon D700, Nikon 24-70 f2.8 @ 24mm, 5 exposure HDR composition processed in Nik and adjusted in CS6. The second shot is looking to the west at some shelf ice and one nice ice boulder. Shot with my Nikon D700, Nikon 24-70 f2.8 @ 24mm, 5 exposure HDR composition processed in Nik, adjusted in CS6 then converted to b&w in Silver Efx Pro. I did remove a radio antenna on the far shore because I’m not that much of a purist.
