Happy New Year On The Lake


Seven ships lined up on New Year’s Day on Lake Superior,just outside the Duluth harbor, awaiting their turn for entry.  At one point there were eight ships waiting.

Memories of a Distant Lake

Although I’m currently traveling, my mind is never far from the inland sea named Lake Superior.  While having a bit of quiet time before having to go check in on a family member, I searched through my image collection on my iPad and decided to work on the image below using the mobile versions of Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop.  They may not be as robust as the desktop verions, but I was able to arrive at a satisfactory result with a bit of work and even add a watermark (in Photoshop).  It would be nice if I could access the watermarks I’ve created on the desktop version.

Winter Storm

Northern Minnesota enjoyed a mid March winter storm yesterday, most of which missed urban Duluth.  It was one of those wet, spring style snows that clings to everything, dressing up the landscape in monochrome wonder.
