It's been a year since I first started taking Lake Superior sunrise pictures. I'd like to think I've learned a lot about my camera in that year, but I also have more learn. So I'll keep on practicing! I finally made it out last weekend after a couple cloudy Sundays in a row. I had to get out all my warm winter clothes because it was 0 degrees. The sun rose at 7:22 a.m. I stayed close to home, driving to the marina.
I first tried the safe harbor area, but the sunrise was a little hard to see
I went to the overlook instead, where the sun lit up the sky despite some pretty heavy clouds
With Daylight Savings Time ending, the sunrise was earlier again this week at 6:51 a.m. When I first got up and looked outside, the sky was brilliant orange. It was 21 degrees outside with frost on the windshield again, so I let the car warm up a few minutes. I decided to go to Split Rock Lighthouse. When I got there, I had to fill out a state park permit form, hurrying anxiously as the bright orange gradually faded.
