Locked Up

There’s a tradition along the Lakewalk in Duluth where people leave a lock on one of the wooden posts by Lake Superior.  And, no, there is no ice on the lake now, this was taken in April.

Shadows and Mist

Early morning mist on Lake Superior provides a backdrop for the posts casting long shadows along the human-made construct.

Gray Day with Ice

Ice coats everything along the shore of Lake Superior this time of year.  If one is careful, you can creep around on the icy shoreline and rocks and find little treasures.

Superior’s Wrath

When Gitche Gummi gets her undies in a bunch, you need to give her a wide berth.  Today’s (Oct. 10) high winds once again stirred up the “Big Lake” and she put on a show for those brave or foolish enough to venture near for a closer look.  Waves were reported to be as high as 28 feet and much damage was done to the beaches and lakewalk. I also learned today that my current rain gear is not up to the task of these conditions and I need to carry more towels for keeping lenses dry.  Ultimately I could not keep up with the spray and had to quit.   I was totally soaked through my rain gear and all my camera gear needed to be dried out. Even with all that, it was, as always, an exhilarating experience.

Fury

A solid northeast wind with all of Lake Superior to gather ahead of the gale means furious waves at the western end of the lake.  On Saturday, April 14th, we had such a day and it became a tourist event with all accessible locations crowded with sightseers…and lots of photographers.  At one spot there was even surfers.
