The ships are gone, the crowds are gone and the harbor is back to a less chaotic state of being. The Tall Ships Festival was amazing, the number of people that attended was staggering and the ships beautiful. But it’s nice to have things a bit quieter, more peaceful and less crowded.
On a recent night when I expected to see the aurora lighting up the skies over Duluth, I got a surprise. Rather than seeing the northern lights, I captured this unique image, for which I have no explanation. I took many shots that night, but only this one has what appears to be lights in the sky over the Blatnik Bridge and the harbor. Other than cropping the image, doing a bit of sharpening and noise reduction, I’ve done no other editing.
