Another great shot. Lake Superior sure is a great attraction.
Have you ever tried in on a miserable day? That might be interesting! #10212233

Thank you, Art. Having been captured 1/2 hour after sunset, this would have had a much bluer cast if it had been cloudy at all in the West, but the skies were so clear there was still a strong orange glow in the skies that lit up the rocks.

Thank you, Mike. Lake Superior has an amazing variety of beautiful scenery. I've spent much of the last 2 months photographing along it's shores and have barely touched the possibilities even along the 2 miles of shoreline at Presque Isle Park,and have only posted a fraction of the images I have captured. I have not yet photographed there when it was actually raining, but I do have a recent image of an approaching storm where I captured a lightning bolt I intend to post one of these days. #10212313

Beautiful capture of blue hour light. I especially like the light on the rock in the foreground and also the long exposure effect on the water. Excellent work! #10221973
