A different take on Split Rock Light House on the North Shore of Lake Superior. These are from a series I’ve been working on one of the most photographed features on the North Shore. One of my favorite and most used lenses is my 10.5mm fish eye, I like the way I can use it to “warp” reality and in the case of photographing people it also adds a more intimate dimension to both individuals and small groups. In a way it does a great job of putting the viewer into a photo.
So instead of the ordinary approach, I used my fish eye and then edited it with multiple layers of textures to achieve what you see.
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 adjacent to the ship canal and lift bridge. It caught my attention because the way the ice and snow draped over the boulders, turning them into an apparition of hooded creatures emerging from the ground.
