A few captures from last night’s sub-zero Northern Lights over a frozen Lake Superior shore. There was a nice band of color over the horizon with a little bit of activity when I first arrived at 9:00pm EST. The temp. was -17 degrees and I managed to last for about 2 hours. Not too shabby. My Nikon D7000 was a champ and had no problems with the extreme cold. Even the battery was still at 3/4 full when I left. 2/27/14 - Little Presque Isle, Marquette, MI
A few shots from yesterday’s final day of the UP200 dog sled race held annually in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. The 240-mile race starts in downtown Marquette, runs to Grand Marais and then back. The race is also a qualifier for the famous Iditarod held in Alaska.
Tonight’s view of a nearly froze over Lake Superior atop Sugarloaf Mountain. The big lake is said to be 91% covered in ice. It’s quite the sight to see from high above with nothing but ice to the horizon. Marquette, MI.
A few shots from hiking at Little Presque Isle just outside of Marquette, MI. It was a beautiful winter day with calm winds, mild temps. and bright sun. I love when the lake has these mini icebergs floating around. It just adds so much interest to the shots.
Happy New Year! Here are a couple shots from my January 1, 2014 photographing around the Marquette, MI area. It was a pretty chilly afternoon with the air temp. being around 5 degrees but well worth the cold to get out and photograph.
I’m pretty excited to have one of my Lake Superior winter storm photos published in the Jan/Feb ‘14 issue of Outdoor Photographer. It’s part of their Showcase feature (pg. 22) and also has a short write-up I did. Photo taken April 2013 in Marquette, MI - Upper Peninsula.
Here are some Northern Lights shots from Saturday, Dec. 7th. I headed out to the Lake Superior shoreline just a few miles out of Marquette, MI. What an impressive display despite the temperatures being sub-zero.
