          Photography of Michigan's                                 
       Keweenaw Peninsula
         

               Whale Rock Images specializes in photography of the
                                   Western Upper Peninsula of Michigan and the Lake 
                                 Superior Region of the upper Midwest   

             
             
            Situated in the Western Upper Peninsula of Michigan, Eagle Harbor, nestled on
                      the south shore of  Lake Superior in Michigan's Keweenaw Peninsula, is one of 
                      many of it's uniquely  beautiful places. The area has a rich copper mining history
                      with many preserved  historically significant features.  So it gets it's name
                      "The Copper Country." The  Keweenaw National Historical Park commemorates
                      the copper mining history of  the Keweenaw.  Geologically, the rocks known as
                      the Keweenaw lava-flows are the oldest known at more than one and a half 
                      billion years old and contribute to the  areas unique topography.  The topography
                      ranges from sandy and rocky shorelines to rugged hills reaching to mountains 

                      and the beautiful Brockway Mountain drive.   Overall, it is truly a magical place. 
                      I hope my photo-interpretation gives you a  glimpse of it's beauty.  
                      Enjoy and protect!

                    The gallery is a compilation of a portion of the photographs available for purchase                                              
                    covering a broad range of subject material of Michigan's Upper Peninsula.                   
                    The area is one of the Midwest's most environmentally diverse regions wit
                    Lake Superior surrounding the Keweenaw Peninsula, its rugged mountain
                    ridges and valleys, the Copper Harbor, Eagle Harbor, and Mendota                                                                            
                    lighthouses, the Brockway Mountain drive, it's miles of  pristine beaches,                                                           
                    the copper mining history of the area, mine tours and numerous mines for                                                                          
                    rock and mineral collecting,  it's many waterfalls, berry picking (bilberry,                                                                         
                    thimbleberry, blueberry, blackberry, wild strawberry, and raspberries),                                                                        
                    ancient pine forests, ghost-towns, old mining villages and ruins, old cemeteries,                                                                      
                    lake shipping history, and the people of the Copper Country.  I have tried to
