Frosted Shoreline

After every good storm along the shore of Lake Superior, the spray from the waves coats everything in ice.

A Quiet Cove in Winter

Although Lake Superior was in turmoil, this cove was serene and peaceful. Image was captured at Split Rock State Park.

December Rain and a Muddy Waterfall

Gooseberry Falls

In twenty-four hours, the weather in northern Minnesota went from warm and foggy, to an overnight thunder storm and then a snowstorm the next morning. Very strange weather for us in December but, it did make the north shore rivers and stream more interesting.

Tamarack Trees
American Larch

The American Larch, also known as the Tamarack, is an abundant tree in northern Minnesota. In the fall it adds it’s brilliant yellow color as it mixes in with the now barren trees of late autumn.

Forest Fires and Burning Skies

Another from a smoky morning on Stoney Point along the shore of Lake Superior. It was difficult to work with the low air quality and I began to get a headache and scratchy throat making this one of the last images I captured before heading home.

Adding Color

Like many places in the U.S., northern Minnesota is experiencing forest fires. Depending on the wind direction, Duluth may have nice, clear air or heavy smoke from the fires. On this morning the smoke was blowing down the lake toward Duluth providing us with unhealthy air quality. The upside to the smoke is beautiful sunrises and sunsets.

Frosty Wonderland

This past week week we had a few foggy days with cooler temps which usually creates a frosted wonderland. Although I did not have the chance to really take advantage of the phenomenon, I did capture a few images and went out a couple of days later to try macro photography on what was left of the frost.
