One thing that I know for sure is that Ely, Minnesota is an awesome place. I am sitting here right now at a lake with birch and pine trees all around me. The birch trees are a brilliant yellow and orange colour. (There is also a golden retriever right here who is patiently waiting for me to throw a tennis ball for him. ) I am here with people from the Manitoba Camera Club. We have found the most amazing spots to take pictures. We have taken pictures of wolves, fall trees, reflections, sunsets, an old mine, etc, etc. There is no one best part of this trip, but being here with fellow photographers is one of the biggest thrills; to be with people who also want to get the shot, who know what they are looking for, who know about composition and lighting and who are fun to be with is one of the best parts for me. I am loving this trip. Here are a few of my favorite images:
The chair is for Shauna. I have another one for her as well. And the best one, the one I love the best, is one that I took today and isn’t ready to be uploaded. We have 2 more days of shooting. I wonder what we will find next? I’m sure we’ll find a ton of other stuff as well.
If you are waiting for your session to be in a gallery, I am sorry that I haven’t gotten to them. There is very limited internet here. There is none at our cabin and since we’ve been shooting from dawn to dusk, it has been hard to have time to upload. I will have your shoots ready by Tues.
