Winter Photography Workshop

 In Grand Marais, Lake Superior, Picture, Rivers, Winter, Workshops and Classes

Lake Superior at Cascade River

These are some of my favorite photos from this year’s Winter Photography Workshop at Lutsen Resort. I taught the photography side of the workshop and Adam Harju taught the winter part of the workshop. We had temps as cold as -30F with the windchill. Winds up to 50 mph during the sunset session. I’d say another great winter experience. Gotta love winter in the northland. It’s just too darn short!!!

For the following pictures, I switched to my Lens Baby, which is one of my most used winter lenses.

    I can imagine ho you can survive around so much cold. I live here in Florida… No snow at all.
    Anyway.. It is good to look at your pictures just to be glat for what I have here!

    Hi Paulo,

    There’s a saying up this way: “There is no bad weather, only bad clothing.” If you dress right, it’s just fun to be outside in winter. Plus, everything becomes a giant playground for snowshoeing into thick woods that would stop any hiking in summer, or skiing on the trails or out on the 1000s of lakes, ice climbing, and more.

    Summers fun also.
