I was staying as artist in residence at Pukaskwa National Park. While attending visitors and holding workshops, there was not much time to get away and explore the back country / paddle down the shore of Lake Superior – more or less limited to the area near the visitor centre and campsite where I was staying. One of my daily chores for the sake of my own photography was to take the trail down to one of the beaches before sunrise (in the dark) and after sunset (“hey, you missed the sunset”…”yes, I know”). Of course there were many subjects, and we should work with what is available, but in regards to seascape and grand vista, there was this lone rock as the only good foreground. And that’s where I ended up every time – same location – same view – but at different times, weather and light conditions, different angles. Above are some of the versions. I often used an ND-grad. filter to bring out the foreground a bit, in combination with long exposures. There are many more shots similar to these and it was hard to choose the keepers…try to pick your favourite out of these six. If you are travelling along the north shore, stop by at Pukaskwa … many great art programs in 2012 and, of course, mind-blowing scenery.
