Fire on the Ridges - Autumn Colors 2012

We spent a few days on the North Shore of Lake Superior this week enjoying the fall colors. As it happened, the maple ridges looked to be on fire with the reds, yellows, and oranges of this wonderful season.

After hiking through the woods, I couldn't help myself and rented an airplane the next day to try and capture the beauty of peak colors. The following morning broke to  calm winds and clear skies allowing for a great flight and perfect vantage point to photograph the colors. I have seldom scene such a magnificent display of Gods creation all together in one place.

Here is a short video of the pictures taken of this years autumn colors. While it's difficult to present the true beauty of the scenery, I hope this image and the video can give a feeling of the stunning beauty of the North Shore.
Enjoy!

Duluth 2012 Airshow

The 2012 Duluth Airshow took place this weekend and a good time was had by all, dispite the 40F temperatures. I particularly enjoyed the F4's ( camouflaged planes in the first picture). I flew in the back seat of the reconnaissance version of this plane for 20 years.

Here are a few images taken Saturday. Additional images are here.

Duluth Harbor Boat Traffic for Sunday 9/12/2012

I should have been down at the harbor for such as beautiful morning but I wasn't.   This is where the harborcams come in  -- I was fortunate to able to enjoy the view anyway, be it virtual, by having webcams in place.  Mornings like this, is why I do this.

I hope you find duluthharborcam.com a great way for you to also enjoy the incredible views of Lake Superior and the Duluth Harbor as well as the boat traffic.
Enjoy!

Full Moon and High Tide

Seldom does a warm breeze blow off Lake Superior, however, last evening was an exception. With a 70 degree off lake wind, a full moon, slapping of the waves, and an anchored freighter I could have been on a South Sea Island somewhere. Better yet, it was good old Lake Superior that set the stage for another beautiful and unforgettable evening on the big lake.

The freighter, Federal Power, provided a backdrop for the rising moon as the boat, moon, water and wind interacted to make for a photographers dream.
