Sept. 26, Amity Creek, Duluth, MN
Amity Creek flows toward Lake Superior in Duluth and prior to flowing into the lake, it merges with the Lester River under the bridge where Superior Street crosses the river. The road that meanders along the creek is called Seven Bridges Road, which is appropriate as it contains seven narrow bridges and is a beautiful drive any time of year. Both rivers offer wonderful opportunities for photographers willing to hike the trails and banks of each stream. Each encounter will be different depending on season and water level. On this occasion, the water level was low, fall colors were showing and there were a few small details to be seen.
At this time of year, any river flowing through wooded areas of changing color will provide multiple opportunities to find color in many forms. Late flowering plants, trees changing color, fallen leaves on the ground and floating in the water. I hope you find time to immerse yourself in the colors.
