Miner’s Beach Passing Storm

I created this image on chilly morning at Miner’s Beach in the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore.
As we drove to the trailhead, rain beating on the hood, I had a feeling this morning was going to be a bust. However, if I gave up every time I thought things weren’t going to work out, well, I’d miss a LOT of great photos!
So, we parked the truck and sat in the dark. The rain was pouring harder now, so we decided to stay put and just see what happend.
As sunrise drew closer, the rain let up a little so we decided to walk the trail to the beach. As the trail emptied out onto the sand, the wind and rain started to pick up again. We kept to the edge and in a few minutes things started to ease up again.
I noticed the clouds in were looking pretty cool towards the north – but ONLY if the sun could break through. So, I waded out into the water, setup this shot, then retreated to the shoreline to see what would happen. (I was getting soaked out in the water by the crashing waves).
We almost gave up on the shot when the sun really started to light up the sky. I saw the movement of the clouds and was hoping I could catch the “donut hole” formation you see in the photo. As it blew into position, the light got even better and I snapped away.
This was my favorite of the morning.
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!
