In the ridges of the Porcupine Mountains, splitting the endless forest, rests a picture of natural serenity. Lake of the Clouds, the crown jewel of the Porcupine Mountains State Park and located in the upper peninsula of Michigan, is breath taking for any one lucky enough to experience it first hand. Lake of the Clouds Overlook is the most popular spot from which to view the area, and its easy to see why.
Wayne Moran, Minneapolis Member Since January 2008 Artist Statement As a Minnesota based photographer and artist, Wayne focuses his skills and energies on landscapes, cityscapes, architectural, nature and portrait photography.
His best work comes from images first painted in his mind. He mulls over a prospective image for weeks or months, seeing it from different angles and perspectives, then finally deciding what to capture, he takes action. The result is images that deeply touch a person's emotions and powerfully evoke memories and dreams.
His images are used commercially by companies and organizations ranging from Financial Services firms, mom and pop Ice Cream shops and The Basilica of St Mary. The images are used to communicate their shared vision and values. Book, magazine and calendar publishers have featured his images in their publications and on their covers. His photographs also grace and enhance the décor of many fine homes.
