Amazing.

You have captured the pebbles in the first shot, at just the right time straight after becoming wet, which really brings out all the amazing colours hidden within them and is a real cracker in my opinion.

Well done Armand  :)

Yeah those are great! I grew up in Michigan and have not visited ol' Gitche Gumee in way too long.
Beautiful photos. I think I still have a few Petoskey stones around here somewhere...

I really love the first one, those pebbles are so shiny. A month ago, I was in a "Stones and Minerals" store and they had a box full of polished minerals and looked very similar. They were certainly polished by hand (vs yours polished by nature).

Thank you all!

If you follow that link there are quite a number of them. The first one is somewhere about 30-45 min north of Duluth, where the water was the coldest that I've experienced in Lake Superior, you could stay maybe 10 sec before the pain was too much.

Most of the Lake Superior shore is like that once you go west of Marquette/ Pictured Rocks. The Canadian side of it, the western part in particular, is quite wild.

I live near Lake Erie.  The coloring is perfect.
