Another shot from beautiful Lake Superior Provincial Park in Ontario, Canada. This area was shaped by ancient glaciers that once covered all of Michigan and this area of Canada. The glaciers compacted the soil and created large depressions which formed the Great Lakes. As a result, the northernmost areas of the Great Lakes, particularly Lake Superior, are very rocky. The beaches are made up of rocks and large stones rather than the smooth sand on the beaches of Lake Michigan. Huge boulders are deposited among the massive slate outcroppings. In this shot, three boulders have rest near the shoreline where they have been for hundreds of years. The waves will move them little-by-little towards the shore, but this area will remain relatively unchanged thousands of years. Thankfully, Lake Superior Provincial Park protects the shoreline from further development, and the area will retain its natural beauty for all to enjoy.
This is from the first roll of T-Max 3200 I ever used, and it took me a few tries to get the exposure just right. No post-processing here, except re-sizing, cropping, and sharpening.

Very nice raw pictures with fresh feelings in it, - I mean, fresh like water and air. Stones really match those hills at the back: good reflection :)))

Ah 3200, I love that stuff... very nice tonal range here and the grain is nice too see. Using film is just so rare it seems these days and for that you deserve credit! Nice diagonal leading of the eye from bottom left to top right... I like to think I see elephants bathing in this shot when I look from a distance.
