Small Falls on Lake Superior

It has been a long while since my last post.  I have not had much time to shoot this summer, but have not completely stopped.  But, last week I was out of town at a photography workshop in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.  The bulk on the time was spent outside shooting, and the weather cooperated.  Our coldest morning was 41 degrees, and it was in the 70s most of the week.

One of the evenings was spent at Pictured Rocks National Shoreline, where these small falls make their way to Lake Superior.
