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.
It was a chilly morning for late April and no puddle went unfrozen.
Out at the end of a long and very icy pier, surrounded by very cold water and sea smoke is the light that guides ships from Lake Superior to the ore docks in Two Harbors, Minnesota.

A couple of images from the visit..
While on a recent hike along the shore of Lake Superior, I saw a sky and lake worth capturing with the idea of using negative space to illustrate the the vastness of Lake Superior. The clouds added an extra dimension to the surface of the lake, with the distant lighthouse added for scale. Cropping gave the image a painterly look.

Sometimes you have to make a run for the lake when you think there might be a good sunrise. Today was pretty good.
A somewhat Gothic look at the lighthouse in Two Harbors, Minnesota.
Soft morning light surrounds the North Pier Light in Duluth Minnesota.
While keeping you distracted for the last two weeks I’ve had time to create some new work. On November 10th, Split Rock Lighthouse was lit to commemorate the 43rd anniversary of the sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald in Lake Superior, plus remembering all the lives lost on the lake over the years. As part of the ceremony the light is lit for a few hours in the evening.
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.
