Sunrise poem

I’ve been following the posts on North Shore photographer Bryan Hansel’s Facebook page, gaining daily inspiration from his wonderful photographs, including those of Lake Superior. Bryan has also been writing haiku to describe some of his photography experiences.

This morning I woke up with a poem forming in my head, inspired by Bryan’s photography and writing.


Superior sun

each day ascends

her limnel throne.

At her procession

we stand enthralled –

each day a new gown.


The word limnel is one I made up, based on the Greek word for lake (limne, as in limnology). Surprisingly, I was unable to find another adjective with that meaning!


Hampton Beach Sunrise

Last week I was perusing some older photographs and came across shots I’d taken in 2008 on the beach in Hampton, NH at daybreak. Since we recently had our first snow here in Minnesota and every day brings more and more darkness, these images were a welcome, reviving sight.

Much appreciation to my good friend K.R. Seward for sharing his lovely music.


North Shore morning and evening

More from a recent trip to the North Shore.



These shots were created using Photomatix software, which is able to combine multiple exposures – very helpful for crepuscular shooting!
