Waves of Paradise is a field recording by Eric Hinchman. Recorded on the Lake Superior, near Paradise, Michigan, this peaceful, meditative recording captures the sounds of waves lapping the shore. I’ve taken many a vacation in little housekeeping cabins just north of Paradise, and was happy to license my photo, Canadian Windmills for the cover image.
Listening to this CD brings me back to those peaceful summer evenings - enjoying the sound of the waves, maybe sitting by a bonfire, and looking up to see both the natural beauty of the milky way in the clear northern sky and the man made light show of the Prince Wind Energy Farm feeding the Canadian power grid on the other side of the straight.
Below is my photo of the wind farm and Whitefish Bay, taken in evening twilight (click on it for a larger version.)

Last summer I tested a couple of rolls of Arista Edu Ultra 200 (widely rumored to be a re-brand of Foma Fomapan Creative 200) from Freestyle Photographic. First impressions were good and I ordered a 100 foot roll for further testing… And here it is, a year, later, and I am finally getting to it. This is a quick shot of a mortuary statuette taken in northern Michigan. I really like this film!
