It might sound crazy, but Winter is easily my favorite time of the year for photographing the shore of Lake Superior. I used to complain about winter, but have really learned to embrace it since picking up a camera several years ago.
The sub zero temperatures, along with the help of Lake Superior’s waves create icy rocks and interesting patterns and ice formations. Sunrises are vivid, clouds seem more abundant and the mist rises off the lake while the wind sweeps it back and forth. All of these elements combine to create a great deal of depth and interesting-ness not found in other seasons here in MN.
This winter has been no exception. I want to share some of my favorite images captured this 2010-2011 winter.
