Rocks off Pyramid Point

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.

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

    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.

    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!!
