The Pelicans Are Back!

Every year around mid-April, a large number of pelicans arrive to spend time on the St. Louis River near Duluth. Photographers and sightseers alike come out to view the birds and enjoy their layover.

An Early Morning

Image

Walking out on the north pier to watch the sun rise over Lake Superior and the light on these rocks caught my eye. I wonder how many guests in the row of hotels were awake to see this morning’s offering?

Dawn’s Early Light

Shortly before the sun broke the horizon. Shot from the north pier with a view of both lighthouses. Captured using my Loawa 17mm f/4 on Fujifilm GFX 100s.

Sunrise and Sunset

In August of 2016 I captured an image of the Paul R. Tregurtha as she left the harbor and headed out to Lake Superior. The sunrise painted a lovely glow down her side as she steamed away.

Fast forward to January 2022 and the same ship is arriving back to the harbor at sunset. The two images will make for a perfect triptych.

Arriving

The Paul R. Tregurtha arriving under Duluth’s Aerial Lift Bridge at sunset on January 15th, 2022. This was her last trip for the season and will now be docked till shipping resumes in the spring.

At 1013.5 feet, Interlake’s flagship M/V Paul R. Tregurtha is the longest ship on the Great Lakes.

A New Year

Image

2022 arrived a couple of weeks ago, Happy New Year everyone. A new year means doing the bit of housekeeping, such as creating a 2022 folder on my hard drive and in Lightroom. I am slowly adjusting to my new editing space that I moved into last year. I still have more sorting and organizing of stuff as I downsize. I’ve made a resolution to shoot more than last year. Learning more about my new camera and lenses is an ongoing process. After shooting with various Canon cameras over the last fifteen years, switching to Fuji has been a bit strange, yet not too difficult to manage. The basics are pretty much the same on all cameras, it’s just getting use to new buttons, dials and menus. When I need a good, old fashioned dose of reality, I can break out my Nikon FM and load some film.

Where I live, a new year also means winter. What better way to start out the winter of 2022 with some ice along the shore of Lake Superior.
