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.

But Baby, It’s Cold Outside!

The temp was -12F when I ran from my warm car to capture a few shots before dashing back the the warmth of my heated seat.  The water of Lake Superior is warmer than the air which produces the mist, also known as sea smoke.

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.

A brief moment by the lake before the cool breeze pushed back, then the moment was gone.  But, for that moment, an opportunity to commune with the Great Lake, to listen to the song of the waves, to be touched by the fingers of wind as they move through her hair.  How many more of these moments exist for her, for any of us?
