Weekly Photo Challenge: Muse

What is my photographic muse?  It is that big, beautiful body of water called Lake Superior, a frequent subject of my photos and thoughts.  The shores of Gitche Gumee are ever-changing, and each season has its own character and allure.

I have to give a nod to Bryan Hansel Photography, and an evening photo workshop I was fortunate enough to take from him yesterday in Grand Marais.  It was the kind of evening that reminds us why we put up with months of sub-zero temperatures and bone-chilling winds off the frigid waters of the Lake.  As we set up our tripods and adjusted to the fading light, the haze of campfire smoke and fog settled into the pine-covered hills rising from the shoreline.

Across the bay, the lights of the charming town of Grand Marais danced and twinkled across the calm waters.  The sound of bluegrass music from one of the local bars wafted on the air.  Rather than intruding on the peaceful scene, the notes blended seamlessly with the soft colors of the sunset.

The waxing gibbous moon illuminated the dark waters as twilight turned to night.  A loon’s haunting cry … the silent ripples from a beaver swimming in the bay … the night shift was starting …. my muse never sleeps.
