Long Exposure

As photographers cloudy days can be a bit of a drag and discouraging for capturing great images because you're fighting poor lighting, and the sky at first glance can appear pretty blah. But on the shores of Superior, some of the best shots can be taken when it's cloudy and overcast.

Allowing the shutter to be open longer provides a silky smooth water effect and simultaneously captures the movement of the clouds which our eyes overlook. Often times we'll take advantage of this technique and hit up waterfalls to achieve a smooth cascading effect. For those that know of Lake Superior, there is nothing calm about these waters, but provided with a good cloudy day, you'll be sure to snap a breathtaking serene perspective of the big lake.
