Glensheen Mansion Photo Meet

This past Saturday morning, the historic Glensheen mansion in Duluth was opened to photographers for a two hour opportunity to wander with cameras.  Glensheen was decked out for the season with twenty five decorated trees, lots of trim and all the little knickknacks you would expect this time of year.  Outdoors, the grounds were filled tacky inflatables and other statuettes.  Lake Superior added a few touches to the shoreline with some ice.

Ice Hunter

As you may have noticed from previous posts, it’s that time of year when I turn my attention to things that are frozen.  Knowing that we have had high winds blowing across Lake Superior, I figured that there would be fresh ice to discover so off I went in search of new work.  My first stop was
Stoney Point, a favorite of many who travel up the north shore of Lake Superior.  I was rewarded with many small pockets of ice that formed wonderful abstract patterns.  I spent over two hours wandering around on the ledge rock photographing as many as I could before all my batteries succumbed to the cold.
