From yesterday’s wind storm. The northwind gusted to 60mph at time. The wind challenged me to hang on the ground at points. Check out the structure in the clouds. An amazing storm.

Remember, I’m teaching a Gales of November workshop this year. These are the types of images that, with the right conditions, we’ll make during the workshop.

Spend a day capturing the fury of the Gales of November with photographer Bryan Hansel, The class will start with a brief slide show exploring the ways to shoot water. Then the class will head out to several locations on Lake Superior taking advantage of whatever conditions we find ourselves in. If the lake is calm, we’ll spend the time photographing Superior and practicing our techniques on local rivers and waterfalls. Whatever happens with the weather, this is a fun and instructive opportunity. Lake Superior Magazine wrote an article about last year’s workshop!
