The Photographer

Challenging weather days around Lake Superior brings out photographers trying to get that great storm shot.  It amazes me just how many people will brave the elements to come out and witness Lake Superior when the strong northeast winds bring big waves to Duluth.  We may not have hurricanes here, but Gitche Gummi can do her best impression of one.

High winds from the northeast are building big waves on Lake Superior today and everyone is out enjoying the view.

Winter’s Frozen Embrace

Happy New Year to all, hope you’ve enjoyed the holidays in whatever form you preferred to celebrate.  For me it was a very enjoyable break with family and friends, not much photography, but plenty of merriment.  However, my urge to wander with a camera overcame the comfort of home and off I went for a walk along the beach known as Park Point here in Duluth.  There had been strong winds coupled with freezing temps and the spray from the waves had coated everything near the water.  I present two images in color and two in black and white.  The specks imbedded in the icy coating are grains of sand that mixed in with the blowing spray.
