Northwoods Project – Update
Relocation and settling in to our new home in Indiana delayed any significant photo trips until later that year.
There remain many areas of the Northwoods in the Upper Mid-West for me to photograph and in October it was time to see what the eastern section of the Michigan UP had to offer.
Waterfalls included were Lower & Upper Tahquamenon, Munising, and Wagner Falls. Lighthouses visited were Au Sable, Mackinac Point, McGulpin Point, and Whitefish Point. Whitefish Point offers The Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum and the area is known for the infamous Edmund Fitzgerald sinking 17 miles from Whitefish Point.
In addition to the waterfalls and lighthouses, highlights of the eastern UP photo trip include the Seney Wildlife refuge, Mackinac Bridge, and a moose sighting.
Total miles traveled 1597 over 550 original RAW photos taken resulted in 124 final completed photographs.
Essence of the Northwoods Vol. 2
As planned the second Essence Book was completed in March. Spanning 123 pages and containing 156 photos. Included are two award-winning photographs and on the front cover is the breathtaking Lake of the Clouds located in the Porcupine Mountains State Park; the Split Rock Lighthouse appears on the back cover.
There are 123 locations of the subjects contained within the book and for this second phase of the project, I shot another 1,600 original photos and traveled 4,600 miles. Nineteen waterfall locations and six lighthouses were photographed for this edition. Combined travel to-date for the Essence project is almost 9,000 miles.
