Early Morning Goals

This morning I arose early so I could be in Canal Park in Duluth for the sunrise and accomplish two goals. One was to get a shot of the sun rising between the two lights at the end of each pier at the entrance to the Duluth harbor, the second was a shot of the Aerial Lift Bridge lit by the morning sun.  Below are two of the results.

Take Me to the Pilot

Lights Everywhere

The annual Bentleyville “Tour of Lights” is in full swing in Duluth right now through December 26th.  This popular attraction draws thousands to the area and every year.  This past week the warmer than usual temperatures have made for even larger crowds.

Like A Mirror

It was one of those rare nights when the harbor was perfectly calm allowing for near perfect reflections of the Aerial Lift Bridge. The only camera I had with me was my iPhone 7 Plus so quality is not as good as I would prefer. I did however use the ProCam app which allowed me to shoot RAW with the hope of salvaging a decent final image. Editing was done on my iPad with Adobe Lightroom CC.

Feeling Blue

It’s feels good to be posting new work, I’ve been hampered by tech issues lately.  My primary computer, a seven year old MacBook Pro is making my life difficult and I am having to resort to my even older, eleven year old Mac Pro.  The good news is, after I receive two more components, I can start assembling a new PC.  I’m building a system that will not only provide more than enough power for photo editing, but also be able to chew through 4K video like a hot knife through butter.

Why is the bridge blue? Duluth’s Aerial Lift Bridge and Enger Tower will be lit teal throughout the weekend to raise awareness about ovarian cancer. It’s all part of the Light Duluth Teal weekend put on by the Minnesota Ovarian Cancer Alliance.
