North Shore Weekend

Jacquelyn and I spent a long weekend visiting our favorite North Shore destinations. Much hiking, photography, great food, and a visit to a spa.

This view of the Grand Marais Harbor wall and lighthouse is one I have revisited numerous times due to the lovely lichen in the foreground.

Viewed from the Light house the sunset produces a lovely contrast with the navigation marker

I was fascinated by a picture I had seen of a wave captured at high speed so I experimented with capturing water falls at higher shutter speeds to see the water details.

However I am always taken by the effect of slowing down the shutter speed and watching the water trails

The massive Pigeon River Falls at Grand Portage provided a great spectacle, the water plunging several hundred feet then exploding up to reach the observation deck.

We scouted out the area where I will be leading a trip soon. The Tettegouche State Park, Baptism River Launch.

And the Susie Islands.

Before finally visiting Split Rock where we hope to paddle too.
