Baie Comeau arrival Duluth (-20F) 1/5/2014

The new 730 ft Baie Comeau arrived this morning in -20F temperatures - one of the most beautiful arrivals I have scene in a long time.  My wife Debby was able to operate the webcam recording for this arrival while I was taking "real" pictures.  As a photographer, these are the days you wait for.
Wish you were here!


  1. Truly awesome shots! You could "feel" the cold in your pictures!
    Thank you!

  2. snapping shots through holes in the sea smoke,,nice work Dennis, I seen there were about 6 or 8 ship heads out there also..

  3. Man, you are amazing. Thank you again and again for letting us share what you do and enjoy soooo much....

  4. Great work.

    Thanks to the both of you...

  5. Beautiful! I watched this come in on the visitor cam this morning. It just magically appeared through the sea smoke. Where are you taking your pictures from because it looks like you are almost standing in the water!

  14. Yes, I do wish I'd been there!! Wonderful photos, Dennis, as always (and nice job, Debby)... great shots of the Great Lakes Towing tugs, too. Kudos to the boatwatchers braving the cold and the sea smoke on the breakwater, too.
