During the last two weeks I was fortunate to spend the part of four days with some William Kelley School students in Silver Bay. The Northern Lake County Arts Board asked that I present an artist-in-residence nature photography program for the fourth grade students. It was a lot of fun.
We spent two days in the classroom, a portion of a day at Gooseberry Falls State Park and all day at Grand Portage State Park with Travis Novitsky, another North Shore photographer.
While returning from one of the field trips is when I had this outdoor adventure. I noticed an ore boat cruising down lake and thought it might go behind this eagle nest I have been watching. I have tried to capture this shot with an ore boat in the background for three years. I only had about 30 seconds to make it work but it all came together.

Photographing the North Shore became a passion when he and his wife moved to Cascade River State Park in 1976. In 1983 he relocated to Gooseberry Falls State Park which he managed for 28 years.
