Snow squalls at sunset over Lake Tahoe

These shots are from a collection we captured from a variety locations along Lake Tahoe.  We stumbled on this location while exploring some back roads overlooking the lake.

Sunrise & Sunset over Lake Superior

A visit to the north shore of Lake Superior doesn’t feel normal without at least a couple of sunset or sun rise shots. These were taken along the North Shore at locations including Grand Marais, Two Harbors along with a couple of other locations I can’t seem to remember. The sun rise and sunset on […]

Capturing the Boreal woods

Another from New Year’s Day, this one from Ft. Snelling State Park. Instead of capturing the opposite bank of the Minnesota River water and all, I decided to shoot straight into the tangle of vines, bare branches and remaining brown oak leaves.

Mystery visiters on Duluth shore

A couple of years ago Duluth and the lower North Shore of Lake Superior experienced a particularly rough winter as huge waves washed over sea walls. The over wash froze and left some amazing sculptural effects behind that changed the shape and appearance of everything it touched through out the winter. This photo was taken […]

Machines in the Garden

Whenever I see a wind farm no matter the size,  I’m always struck by the visual impact these behemoths have on both the rural landscape and the horizon. Their presence has forever changed both the scale and our perception of what we previously identified as a relatively uninterrupted horizon and a human scale landscape. Just […]

Chasing the subtle light of winter

For my friends from the Twin Cities, if you’ve noticed this year while driving either direction on 494 just above the the Ft. Snelling State Park lake, take a look. Depending on the light you might see that the tops of all the trees are a very light grey, while the main body of the […]
