I'm getting ready to do my first coffee table book on the Ice Caves at Bayfield, WI

I'm going to do a Kickstarter project for it and will post info here when its up. I have a few more images to prepare as well as figure costing and timeline.

Currently I'm shooting with a Nikon P7800 as my only camera so the book will be modest in size but the photograph should be the best they can be. I'm looking to get back into either a D810 or a D800 and a couple lenses specifically the venerable 14-24, seriously a phenomenal lens system, and probably the 24-120 to round out a nice landscape and portrait set up. so if you buy the book you'll be helping me get back into the game. :-) Gear for me at least, has one purpose, and that is to solve problems. I like to print and I like big prints and that takes big files with awesome detail.

So if you're interested post a comment and when I have the Kickstarter project set you I'll post a comment here which should then let you know it up and available for your consideration.

Morning view from an Ice Cave

Surreal is the only way I can think of to describe the scenes this morning on Lake Superior on the Wisconsin side, near the Apostle Islands.

The Sentinels
These two rocks covered in moss stand watch as the Minnehaha river flows past under a bridge just out of frame while the sun lights up the water.

Blue and Gold

I loved the gold and blues in this one too much to go B&W.

Rushing Water

I so love water, the power, the subtleness, the way it moves, with experience you can see the patterns/paths it create and when when using slow shutter speeds those shapes are unique every time the shutter opens.

Sunrise at Split Rock Lighthouse

Split Rock Lighthouse is a lighthouse located southwest of Silver Bay, Minnesota, on the North Shore of Lake Superior. Many consider it one of the most picturesque lighthouses in the United States.

Split Rock Lighthouse was built in response to the great loss of ships during the famous Mataafa Storm of 1905, in which 29 ships were lost on Lake Superior. It is built on a 130-foot (40 m) sheer cliff.

+Bruce Travis  Me too I have it on my iPhone in my Favorites playlist. Gordon Lightfoot is way under rated as an artist, I think.

Heart of the Canyon

As I was tinkering with this image in Antelope Canyon from a few years ago converting to B&W I noticed that Mother nature had a little surprise, a heart. in color it wasn't very prominent but in B&W it practically jumps out.  Do you see it?

Water Log

Combine, Water with a slow shutter speed and light from an interesting direction is a recipe for endless possibilities. This setting had me mesmerized for quite a while watching the water dancing around and under this log.

I signed this petition. I think this person needs to have the book thrown at her. This type of vandalism needs to stop Idiots like this need to learn there are consequences for their actions and just because they think its right or okay doesn't mean it is, the arrogance and lack of consideration for others is too prevalent in our society today. There are so many much more appropriate ways to get your art out there. This defacing of nature just sickens me. The Boy Scouts troop leaders got away with a slap on the wrist for their vandalism of a 175 million year old hoodoo last year.

I hope you'll at least consider signing the petition too.

Story
Tagline
Photon Capturer and Pixel Pusher
Introduction
39+ years as a professional photographer, landscapes, cityscapes, wildlife, sports, photojournalism, commercial, still life, food, aerial (from helicopters, planes, and blimps) and occasionally portraits.

To me its not a photograph until its been printed. Maybe I'm old school that way, there's just something about a photograph on a great piece of fine art paper that just says so much more than on a monitor.

Favorite quote: “When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.”-Ansel Adams
