Clevelanders might think the waves on Lake Erie small and relatively unnoteworthy. On windy days, choppy waters draw the occasional surfer to Edgewater or send splashes crashing over the breakwall and onto I-90. But generally, our Great Lake is regarded as a flat, placid neighbor.

He shared some of his favorite images with Scene along with thoughts on getting the shots.
