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.
The Glensheen Mansion is a popular stop in Duluth for those wishing to experience the history and grandeur of Lake Superior living. On occasion the grounds and buildings are opened to the public for free for photography events. I made my first trip this morning to scout it out and capture a few images.
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.
Alignment, placement, compositional choices.
Evidence, what once was, is no longer.
Structure, steel framework carving out a slice of the sky.
We have very strong winds in Minnesota today which is causing some serious wave action on Lake Superior. I took a short drive to a spot just up the shore from Duluth called Stoney Point to see if there was a possible photo op, yep! Stoney Point is also the location of an old fishing shack, which has probably been photographed by every photographer in the area and beyond. Everyone has there own take on the relic, I’ve included one of mine.
