2012 – A Year in Photos

2012 turned out to be a pretty good year for me. I didn’t get out to take photos as much as I would have liked, but I came away with a crop of images I can be proud of.
I did a solo tenting trip around lake Superior, which was an absolute blast, even though the conditions weren’t great for photography. I can’t wait to go again.
Enough babbling from me, here are the photos.

“Razor Backs” – 2012 was a weak year for ice piles, but I was fortunate to find these shards sticking up from the ice during a wild, red sunrise.

“Poseidon’s Molar” – A location I had scouted out a couple years ago and finally was able to shoot there this past January.

Kip and his big-ass camera. Kip Praslowicz is known for shooting 8×10 film with a street style approach. He captured a couple frames of┬áme this particular morning and I grabbed a couple of him as well. Check out his work HERE.

 

“Serpent Rising” – A location I often return to on Stoney Point.

“Blown Up” – The sky blew up with amazing light and color over Lake Superior.

“Rush-N-Attack” – Big Waves attack the shoreline on Stoney Point during sunset.

“Kingsbury Over-Flow” – The great flood of 2012 overflows Kinsbury Creek. You can usually walk across the entire creek.

“Jay Cooke Rush” – During the great flood of 2012, the lower falls area of Jay Cooke was extremely high.

“Lift Bridge and Pillars” – Just after sunset the gold colors on the bridge contrast with the blues in the sky.

I was fortunate to be asked to shoot some commercial work this summer. Shooting some extremely talented Mountain Bike riders was the most fun.

“Stoney Point Fishing Shack” The sky glows behind the old fishing shack during one of the most intense sunsets I have ever seen.

“Sorbet Explosion” – A long exposure at sunset created this ethereal effect with an interesting rock formation on the North Shore of Lake Superior.

“Attacking the Giant” – Star trails appear to be attacking the Sleeping Giant at Sleeping Giant provincial park.

“Grand Portage Fall” – While visiting the overlook in Grand Portage, the sky went wild with color.

“Lake Ave Sunrise” A sunrise over Lake Avenue in Canal Park.


Thanks for taking a look at this short review and I hope you enjoyed what you saw.
