Calm Crossing

Several years ago the Ira Bong bridge was closed, one direction at a time, for improvements.  Since this bridge happens to have a bike/pedestrian path that allows riders to cross between Duluth and Superior, I was able to go out a couple of times and have half the bridge to myself.  This gave me a rare opportunity to capture images that otherwise would be impossible to get, at least legally.  I made two trips during that time, one daytime and one nighttime.  Of all of the images, this remains one of my favorites.

A Penny For Your Thoughts

One of the gorillas at the Como Park zoo in St. Paul, Minnesota.  I can’t help wondering what he is thinking as we all stand around and stare at him as he stares back at us.

The Flow

Late evening along the St. Louis River as it flows through Jay Cooke State Park in Minnesota.  This beautiful park is home to amazing rock formations, rapids and waterfalls.  A trip across the famous swinging bridge will take you to several vantage points to view the river and allows access to hiking trails in the park.

Fury

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.

Fortunately, it’s a win either way!

Waiting for Better Weather

When warmer weather returns, people will once again sit and enjoy the scenery from this bench.  For now, other than some intrepid ice anglers, no one is about, all is quiet, all is frozen.
