Ice Photography Along the North Shore of Lake Superior

Today’s trek to Terrace Bay and Rossport involved a series of stops on the side of the highway to run through snow until I got to the lakeshore. Surprisingly, there wasn’t much snow, but some beautiful ice images to capture…






"Ice shells"... dainty rock coverings that had fallen off of their molds, leaving fragile natural sculptures.

    Wonderland! You’ve just inspired me to get back outside. So beautiful it’s ridiculous. Thank you.

    Those are wonderful images, Colleen. Thanks for sharing them. I’m always in awe of people like you who have “the eye” and see things that I miss.

      Thanks Doug! Whenever I pick up my camera, I think about the Photo Walks at Niagara Falls. It’s so nice to learn from other people when trying to improve a skill. Peter Beens held a great session at #bit14 re: digital photography, and I feel like I want to revisit his tips every now and then. Better yet, I wish we could all have another session & walk together! There were a few times yesterday when I accidentally pressed a button and adjusted a setting I didn’t mean to, and a sense of panic surged through my system. Those are the times when we need somebody beside us, assuring it will be ok & guiding us through what we need to do.

        When I first broached the idea of a nighttime photowalk, you wouldn’t believe the looks and comments I got! But, it just seemed a natural to me and learning and making friends shouldn’t end after the last session! Over the two years, I learned so much from you, Peter, Angie, Patti, and Rebecca. I hope that it’s something that the new committee keeps on, going forward.

        Finally, I’m so glad that I followed your blog. I don’t know if you remember, but it was your post about doing photography with your kids that led me to invite you to be a leader last year. I’m so glad that you agreed. I hope that your student realize the benefits of having a teacher so sharing. Witness the pottery you shared recently.

        This is all sharing in action. Many people talk about it and claim to be leaders. You’re absolutely doing it and leading by example. Simply awesome.

        Doug, I can’t express how much your kind words mean to me. Thank you so much for your unfailing support for so many educators. Like students, we need someone who cheers for us and encourages us to try even more than we already have. You have enabled teachers to do things they might not have been able to do on their own. I’m so thankful.
