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.

Frosted Shoreline

After every good storm along the shore of Lake Superior, the spray from the waves coats everything in ice.

A Quiet Cove in Winter

Although Lake Superior was in turmoil, this cove was serene and peaceful. Image was captured at Split Rock State Park.

December Rain and a Muddy Waterfall

Gooseberry Falls

In twenty-four hours, the weather in northern Minnesota went from warm and foggy, to an overnight thunder storm and then a snowstorm the next morning. Very strange weather for us in December but, it did make the north shore rivers and stream more interesting.

Exploring Negative Space

While on a recent hike along the shore of Lake Superior, I saw a sky and lake worth capturing with the idea of using negative space to illustrate the the vastness of Lake Superior. The clouds added an extra dimension to the surface of the lake, with the distant lighthouse added for scale. Cropping gave the image a painterly look.

Opt Out Outside

In 2015, REI Co-op started Opt Outside inviting employees and members to look at the Black Friday in a new light. I have been participating in Opt Outside from the beginning and this year was no different. For 2021, I took a trip to Jay Cooke State Park, the nearest state park to Duluth and a park I frequent due to its closeness. On arrival I was happy to see a busy parking lot and lots of people enjoying the nice November day.
