As soon as I arrived back in Marquette, I was very excited to photograph a few locations I have had on mind for quite some time. I decided to wake up at 6 AM my third day back to venture out to Sand River. Sand River is only about fifteen miles outside of Marquette, heading towards Munising. The forecast was for primarily overcast skies, but I was feeling antsy, I would not wait another day to photograph the location. I reached Sand River and the conditions seemed to match the weather report, overcast, so I approached the scene in a subtle manner.
_____Random Info Another Panorama from my summery trip to the Alps with SvenMueller. I always wanted to make such a panorama with only snow and mountains not giving away any other impression or connotation. Sadly the sky was bland but therefor the light conditions on that particular morning were quite impressive leading to some nice shadows on the mountain range which was about 3.5miles away. The original file is made up of 5 horizontal images and was more than 19000px wide. It's quite astounding to look for all the little details on the mountain walls. Sadly I had to downsize it for distro purposes but I think I may print this in full size for my next exhibition.
I deliberately left out my name this time because I figured it would disturb the impression to an extend that it does indeed lower its visual potential covering up to much detail or simply distracting from the emptiness of the sky. Hope you enjoy.
It's very late night and I am not very willing to write. This is one of the many panoramic shots I took during my latest trip to the mountains, this autumn, before the snow. I was very lucky, since I found an extremely clear day, with almost no clouds. The path starts at one of the bends climbing towards Passo Giau, then it reaches Forcella Giau, and, after about an hour, Forcella Ambrizzola. Then the track slopes downwards until it meets Rifugio Palmieri. We stopped there that day, because it was quite late and cold.
A lone rock sits off the coast of the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. Large waves came into the layered rock peninsula with great force, creating very interesting currents. A shutter speed of one second slowed the water enough to show its movements, yet froze the waves in the background enough to highlight the turbulent conditions.
