Meeting the Sunrise

After paddling under the Aerial Lift Bridge, through the shipping channel, three paddle boarders are rewarded with a beautiful sunrise over Lake Superior.

Three paddle boarders were taking advantage of the calm morning to make their way out to Lake Superior to watch the sunrise.

Waiting For the Sun

A sunrise drone flight looking out through the Duluth Aerial Lift Bridge. After checking PhotoPills, I should be able to return here in August to capture the sunrise centered between the piers.

Early mornings by Lake Superior often provide beautiful color for the early riser.

One last visit to find a few trillium still blooming. It won’t be long before they are gone for the year and we will have to wait another year to enjoy their presence.

Little Blue Flowers

I was so busy taking multiple photos for a focus stack of this plant that I did not notice that I was kneeling in a patch of poison ivy. Fortunately, I was not affected and got the shot with no ill effects.

I love finding one of the more unique plants of the woods. Although listed as common, I have not come across very many of them in my explorations of the north woods. You can learn more about this plant here.

May is when many wildflowers bloom in the northern woods where I live and I always look forward to exploring to find them.
