Morning by the Lighthouse

Image

Dawn over Lake Superior next to the north pier of the Duluth entry to the harbor.

An Early Morning

Image

Walking out on the north pier to watch the sun rise over Lake Superior and the light on these rocks caught my eye. I wonder how many guests in the row of hotels were awake to see this morning’s offering?

Dawn’s Early Light

Shortly before the sun broke the horizon. Shot from the north pier with a view of both lighthouses. Captured using my Loawa 17mm f/4 on Fujifilm GFX 100s.

Waiting For the Ships to Return

Image

As the ice clears from Lake Superior, the ships can begin moving back to the ore docks to load iron ore pellets, also known as taconite. (Unless it’s Tuesday, then it’s taco night!)

Back On Ice

Image

The other day I set out looking for something to photograph on a cloudy day. My travels took me to Two Harbors in Minnesota, where I found a couple of geese that appeared to be walking on water. As it turns out, there was a thin layer of water on top of the ice which also created a nice mirror effect.

Crossing Muddy Water

On a recent March day, the wind was calm, Lake Superior was like a mirror and it was a good day to fly the drone. I captured this shot of the Lester River where it enters the lake and was fortunate to have a canoe paddling nearby for scale.
