Rocks off Pyramid Point

    Newer Older

    Back from my artist residency at Sleeping Bear. And a mighty fine time was had: gorgeous weather, lots of hiking, lots of photography. Of course I still have much of the developing and all of the printing to do, but I did get to develop one or two rolls while I was up there.

    A took a lot of pictures of the glacial erratics scattered all over the area. This is on the Lake Michigan shore near Pyramid Point, and that's one of the Manitou Islands in the background, South Manitou I believe.

    Voigtlander pinhole, Ultra 100 film, 2 second exposure in bright sun.

      Very Nice. I've been pretty antsy, waiting to see your work from your residency.

      Delightful. In addition to the milkshake wave blur, there's such wonderful sunlight, in patches, on the scene.

      Welcome ba-

      Make that "Sorry to see you go, come back soon!"

      Was great to meet you in person and to hear you speak about photography.

      Thanks all!

      (Looking at the pic again now, I wish I'd placed the horizon dead centre, but hey, this is pinhole, what can you do? Crop? Pah.)

      Gorgeous shot!
      Looks almost like the tops of mountains through clouds as seen from an airplane.
      And thanks for your kind comment on my shot.

      Unearthly, like a Neil Gaiman landscape.

      reminds me a little of Bill Schwab's work. great details and shades of black and white.

      Hey Matt, this photo appears on The rocks are looming ... but will anyone steer this ship of state? on Absolute Michigan.

      Thanks for adding to the group - I gotta say that we have had some WILD clouds and weather - make your next artist in residence be in the fall!!
