Fishing Shack on Stoney Point

Image

Although I have photographed this shack many times, I did so once again to take advantage of the stormy lake and light on the horizon. The shack in on Stoney Point Drive which is off Scenic Hwy 61 between Duluth and Two Harbors. The shack, once used by local commercial fishermen, is on private land, but the owners graciously allow free access for photographers and others who wish to view this piece of Lake Superior history.

The Old Fish House

Knowing that today was the last day before the bitter cold arrived and was planning to stay for an extended visit, I grabbed my camera bag and headed out.  My goal was to find the spot where there was open water on Lake Superior.  The open water line was at Stoney Point, which is a little over 20 miles from my home in Duluth.  At Stoney Point is an old fish house that is a favorite of photographers from everywhere and I have photographed several times.  The seasons, the sky and the lake all add to the backdrop of the old structure and each person finds a unique perspective when they visit.
