Marquette Man Captures the Two Extremes of Michigan’s Beauty
A photographer from Michigan's Upper Peninsula recently captured two amazing moments at Black Rocks which is near the tip of Presque Isle Park in Marquette.
Well-known photographer Shannon Kivi (906 Images) took a photo over the summer of two brothers jumping from a cliff into the chilly Lake Superior waters with the sun rising in the background. He really captured a special moment.
Kivi repeated that special moment when he took another photo from the exact same spot on October 17 during the Upper Peninsula's first early-season winter storm. However, this photo looked entirely different as he captured some monster waves crashing into the cliffs.
He took both photos and placed them into a collage and shared them on his Facebook page.
I took the bottom picture this summer on a nice sunny morning at Blackrocks... I met these two brothers, who were jumping in at sunrise while their dad overwatched. I couldn't pass the opportunity for a photo as it was a first for me and such a cool shot.The top picture was from last Monday 10-17-22 when the big Northern gales blew in, producing up to 20' waves. I made a collage to give you a reference to the size of the waves rolling in.
Both photos are extremely powerful and really show two sides of Michigan's beauty.
