This was an incredibly inspired morning with a stunning view watching the snowsquall move across Lake Superior.

It is mornings like these that exemplify the importance of getting outside on the “gloomy” days.

This was an incredibly inspired morning and a stunning view to watch the snowsquall move across Lake Superior.

However, I grew frustrated during the editing process, recognizing that several of my preferred compositions were out of focus.

It happens occasionally, but for this many to be out of focus is bizarre. It’s likely that the lens got switched to manual focus without me noticing, or I was wearing my big winter gloves and struggling to press the focus button, or simply dealing with the winter elements, or simply, it’s entirely possible I was too excited to slow down and worry about the focal point.

This should not be focused on the front of the steps and railing.

It’s infuriating! What was I doing? For some reason, lens is focused on the snow and footprints near the bottom rather than the Bart statue. It seems on these occasions where photos are out of focus, it’s almost always that I’m focused on something as if it’d be just 3-4 feet in front of the lens.

And the same as above.
