    Footprints in the Sand

    This vintage photograph features the sandy shores and waves of Lake Superior, including Little Presque Isle, as seen north of Marquette in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Visiting this spot, you’ll likely have the beach to yourself, and, if surface temperatures are suitable in summer, the island can be explored by wading waist-deep through water.

  • Shores of Lake Superior

    Little Presque Isle

    It’s often said that a person can never go home again; that is, everything changes with time. Memories fade, often becoming embellished and romanticized, and the environment from which recollections stem are also altered. Yet, with a refined sense of appreciation – and, at just the right moment – magic can happen.

    This was my experience upon returning to the shores of Lake Superior, the place of my childhood, as seen here – outside the city of Marquette, in Michigan’s upper peninsula, along the beach near Little Presque Isle.

    The dynamism of a shoreline governed by powerful forces of nature – i.e., Lake Superior – provided a compelling, beautiful visual and spiritual experience, beyond my reminiscence. A great day, indeed!

    Prints available.
