This past Saturday morning, the historic Glensheen mansion in Duluth was opened to photographers for a two hour opportunity to wander with cameras. Glensheen was decked out for the season with twenty five decorated trees, lots of trim and all the little knickknacks you would expect this time of year. Outdoors, the grounds were filled tacky inflatables and other statuettes. Lake Superior added a few touches to the shoreline with some ice.

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.

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.
The Glensheen Mansion is a popular stop in Duluth for those wishing to experience the history and grandeur of Lake Superior living. On occasion the grounds and buildings are opened to the public for free for photography events. I made my first trip this morning to scout it out and capture a few images.
