The Final Moment?

In June of 2017 I posted the image and text below on Monochromia.  This morning, September 20th, 2018, after 96 years, she left this life and moved on to her next adventure.  She did so quietly and peacefully and I hope she enjoys the journey.

A brief moment by the lake before the cool breeze pushed back, then the moment was gone.  But, for that moment, an opportunity to commune with the Great Lake, to listen to the song of the waves, to be touched by fingers of wind as they move through her hair.  How many more of these moments exist for her, for any of us?

Several years ago the Ira Bong bridge was closed, one direction at a time, for improvements.  Since this bridge happens to have a bike/pedestrian path that allows riders to cross between Duluth and Superior, I was able to go out a couple of times and have half the bridge to myself.  This gave me a rare opportunity to capture images that otherwise would be impossible to get, at least legally.  I made two trips during that time, one daytime and one nighttime.  Of all of the images, this remains one of my favorites.

Crushed Ice

I’ve had some questions about the amount of ice piled along the shore of Lake Superior near Duluth, this is just a small sample of conditions as of this past Wednesday.  As winds shift, so will the piles of ice.
