Grand Marais

Early morning in Grand Marais, Minnesota. Located about 30 miles south of the U.S./Canada border. There's nothing like heading out along the shore of Lake Superior on a crisp morning (in Grand Marais, there's no other kind - it rarely gets above 70 degrees there in the summer - the lake sees to that). All is quiet except for the lapping of the water against the volcanic rock on the shore and the occasional laughter of a loon.

Orton processing applied to match my memories of the place.

The Orton effect was the perfect choice. Magnificent.

I'm quite partial to Lake Superior myself. Your post captures some of what I love about it -- the lapping of the waves, the loons, etc. :^)

Which loon was laughing, you or the bird? :-)
