Gems of Nature

Shallow water laps up onto shore, then recedes back into the lake. Eventually, small common stones become smooth. Seen here in a few inches of water along the coast of Lake Superior, this photograph might be the perfect accent piece you’ve been looking for. To see prints and other items available featuring my photography, you can visit these shops…


Water with wrinkles
Natural beauty reflects
Gems tumbled in time
