Hurricane Beach Rocks At Dusk

This is one of those last minute shots you sometimes get when mother nature decides she doesn’t like your plans!
Originally, I was set up for an altogether different shot at Hurricane Beach in Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. I was waiting and hoping for a dose of spectacular sunset light to hit some high clouds that, well, never did materialize. We were thinking about packing it in, when I noticed one part of the sky was really starting to look special. (Why you ALWAYS stick around a bit after a sunset!)
I quickly grabbed my trusty 14-24 and jumped off a little ledge and setup this composition. It was shot with a REALLY wide setting – the front rock in the photo is only about a foot away!
The waves were rushing past the rocks and licking at my legs as I squatted in the sand, trying to stabilize the tripod. Just as the color and light were at their optimum I got the tripod secured. In fact, I was only able to pop off a few shots before the light faded to a dull grey.
As I quickly thumbed through the images on the camera, I hoped I had a winner. I really liked how the long exposure (it was actually getting pretty dark) smoothed out the waves and created an almost surreal effect with the rocks and on the water. I’m glad it looked as good on the computer as it did on the beach
About Our Prints....
We currently sell both individual prints and completely framed and ready-to-hang prints. Our framed prints are professionally matted, mounted and framed.
Here's a sample of our basic mat and frame:
Framed prints purchased though us are generally a better deal than taking a loose print to your local frame shop since we have a pretty significant discount that we pass along to you. When you receive your print in the mail, it's ready to hang and even comes with the hardware for doing so.
Please note that if you'd like another type of print (canvas for example) or another frame style, we can certainly accommodate you, just use the contact us page and we'll customize the artwork to make it perfect for your home.
Our framed prints are guaranteed for as long as you own them against wear, fading, or deterioration. Loose prints are also guaranteed for as long as you own them provided you have them framed under glass using archival materials. We want you to LOVE your prints, so we offer a refund as long as the print or framed print is returned in like new condition within 30 days.
All prints are signed in one of the lower corners (usually the right hand corner).
Delivery time varies and depends on a number of factors, but we always strive to get your prints delivered to you as quickly as possible. I personally inspect each and every piece before it leaves our building. If I'm out of town taking more photos, it can cause a delay, but a good rule of thumb is that a loose print will ship within 2 weeks and a framed print within 3 weeks. That time is significantly shorter if I'm in town at the time the order is placed. If you need a print done by a certain date, you can contact me and I'll be happy to give you an estimated delivery date.
We are now offering quantity discounts if you are interested in two or more pieces. Simply contact me with the sizes and names of the images you are interested in and I will be happy to get you a quote. The more pieces you order, the better the discount.
Thanks for your interest!
