Early mornings by Lake Superior often provide beautiful color for the early riser.
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.
It was a chilly morning for late April and no puddle went unfrozen.
Sometimes you have to make a run for the lake when you think there might be a good sunrise. Today was pretty good.

While keeping you distracted for the last two weeks I’ve had time to create some new work. On November 10th, Split Rock Lighthouse was lit to commemorate the 43rd anniversary of the sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald in Lake Superior, plus remembering all the lives lost on the lake over the years. As part of the ceremony the light is lit for a few hours in the evening.
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.

High winds from the northeast are building big waves on Lake Superior today and everyone is out enjoying the view.
