The arrival of the 1000 ft Edwin H Gott this morning was a fitting end to the 2011-2012 shipping season.
The zero degree temperatures were a good reminder that there is a bit of winter left.
I hope you have enjoyed the views throughout the year, and I will see you in the Spring.
The January Full Moon is always a treat to photograph because it rises directly behind Split Rock Lighthouse this time of year. With this years warm weather and clear skies, the setting made for a great time to be on the shore of Lake Superior enjoying the blessing of a such a wonderful evening.
The John J. Boland arrived this morning signaling the start of winter layup as it headed for Fraser Shipyard where it will wait out the rest of winter.
Seven more Lakers will be arriving over the next two weeks to spend the winter. The Soo Locks will close on Jan. 15 leaving the remaining boats on Lake Superior to find shelter until Spring. Don't worry, cold weather will be arriving next week.
