Poring Over the Picture
I happened to be in northern Minnesota just after a week of rain, so the streams going into Lake Superior were full. I grew up in Minnesota, and the North Shore of Lake Superior is still one of my favorite places for landscape photography. For me, the photograph wasn’t simply about capturing this part of Gooseberry Falls; it was also about water—and lots of it—rushing over the falls. That’s what I wanted my composition to communicate.
