Stormy Lake

NVM_0166-Edit-Edit

High winds are blowing down Lake Superior today creating large waves at the western end of the lake.  At the time this image was taken, winds were running around twenty five miles an hour.  Later in the day, the winds are predicted to grow in intensity and I will try to return to see how things look.

Early Morning Goals

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.

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.
