Very fine set, Dave, covering quite a gamut of subject matter and styles. #5 is my favourite.
Thanks for sharing.

I like 5 a lot. To bad there's trees blocking the views in number 2 and three. Someone needs to do some creative pruning

#1 - very well seen and presented. #7 - I like the use of negative space and it's an image that tells a story. Nice set.

#5 is for me the best by quite a margin. Followed by #1 and 3. Great set, TFS Dave .

Hi Dave,

A rather pleasing series showing us all sorts of ranges of the local environs around Lake Superior.

Foe me, the pick of the set is #5 (along with most other people by the looks of it) - it's beautifully balanced yet such a simple shot with the lighthouse offset and the reflection just filling that space below very well. Excellent weather as well - though, I suspect, cold...?

However, close behind, for me, are #'s 6 and 2; #6 for the sheer clarity and contrast of the scene between the lake shoreline and the urban sprawl beyond - I also like the combination of the small ice floes and the cloud reflections in the water and the bright blue of the sky. A very good image. By contrast, we have a much more atmospheric shot in #2 with people adding a sense of scale. I think if you ever have a chance to go back there in similar conditions but with the absence of people that would add another, almost eerie, level to the scene.

I will add a further comment on #3 as well - I like the idea here - the edge of the world type of thing - but I wonder whether there's a little too much space to the right of the lighthouse? Saying that, it would make a great image for a display board at the site explaining the history and background to the location?


We don't see many 'Great Lake' images on here; I've been to Lake Superior (I think.... ) and struggled to find anything worthy to take images of - but, given the size of these places, that shouldn't be a surprise I guess!

Thanks for sharing these and best regards, Neil,

I like #2 for the creativity of it. That is not the usual shot of Split Rock Lighthouse that everyone tries to capture (see #3 for that shot).
To see is to enjoy. To see beyond is to rejoice.
