A Calm Afternoon

Spend the better part of the week of July 4th with my wife in Grand Marais on the North Shore of Lake Superior. It's the North Shore from a Minnesotans perspective, the real North Shore is much further up into Canada.

Made this image in the afternoon while sitting on the rocks. I'm enjoying the calmness of the image the most. I feel the warmth of the rocks yet the coolness of the water (the water is actually very very cold). I had not been to Grand Marais in July and I was struck by Lake Superiors silence. I am familiar with the lake in late summer and fall when waves are always crashing against the rocks.

Hope you enjoy the image and please leave a comment.



  1. Very nice photograph. It's amazing how still the lake is. Thoe clouds are reflected in the rocks. I like where you placed the horizon.

  2. Beautiful picture Roger. It looks like a magical place to visit. Maybe one of these days my family can make it out to Minnesota to visit. Hope that you are doing well.

  3. I love the peaceful stillness of this shot. It is unusual to elicit such calm. Have you ever been up there during a Nor-easter?? Amazing power. Linda T
