Ice Cap Waterfall
From Saturday morning's shoot on the Lake Superior shoreline section of the Superior Hiking Trail north of Grand Marais, MN. It was a very gray morning with no sight of the sun whatsoever but we still found some nice things to photograph. I spent most of the morning waiting by this ice-covered rock for waves to wash over on the right hand side. The lake was pretty calm, so in about 20 minutes of sitting in this spot only 3 or 4 waves were big enough to wash over and make a very short-lived waterfall. The wait was worth it as I am quite happy with this photo! About 10 minutes after making this photograph the serene calm that had dominated the first part of our outing was gone. The wind had kicked up pretty strongly from the east and it was snowing HARD. The prediction was for 1 to 3 inches of new snow accumulation by the end of the day and Roger summed up both of our feelings on the way back to the car. He said "I hope it snows all day!"
