Today we dodged raindrops and caught various views of Gitchee-Gumee, including at this spot by the breakwater/pier at Grand Marais. The weather patterns have given us dramatic skys, and that’s putting it mildly. However compelling the clouds have been, I found myself gently plopping the camera in the sand for eyeball-to-eyeball shots of the pebbles on the wave-washed beach. Finally, I did get the focus and framing right, but here I record my early brave attempts. Hopefully this photographic mania will pass quickly. After all, isn’t a rock just a rock?
