But Baby, It’s Cold Outside!


The temp was -12F when I ran from my warm car to capture a few shots before dashing back the the warmth of my heated seat.  The water of Lake Superior is warmer than the air which produces the mist, also known as sea smoke.

Lights Everywhere


The annual Bentleyville “Tour of Lights” is in full swing in Duluth right now through December 26th.  This popular attraction draws thousands to the area and every year.  This past week the warmer than usual temperatures have made for even larger crowds.

Like A Mirror

It was one of those rare nights when the harbor was perfectly calm allowing for near perfect reflections of the Aerial Lift Bridge. The only camera I had with me was my iPhone 7 Plus so quality is not as good as I would prefer. I did however use the ProCam app which allowed me to shoot RAW with the hope of salvaging a decent final image. Editing was done on my iPad with Adobe Lightroom CC.


Feeling Blue


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.

Setting My Sights


While enjoying another artist’s work, I couldn’t help but notice the alignment of the two structures.
