My Top 13 Lake Superior Sunrises of 2013

Between the busyness of the holidays, massive snow, and artic temperatures, I have not been out to photograph the sunrise since November. Since I don't have any new photos to share, I thought I'd give you my top 13 favorite Lake Superior Sunrise photos of 2013.

The first day I saw ice built up on the lake

This ice-covered rock looks like a large creature frozen in the middle of the lake. I love the reflections of the clouds in the lake, too.

I like the silhouette of the trees against the orange sky

We're Gonna Have a White Christmas

Last week we had our first major snowfall of the season.  I don't know what the official totals are, but I think we had around two feet of snow.  Areas near us had up to 42"!  The snow combined with the bitter cold temperatures that followed means I've only ventured out for snow photos in the backyard, not early morning sunrise photos.  Click here for sunrise pictures from last year at this time.

The kids couldn't wait to get out and play in the snow

These trees sure hold a lot of snow

Leftover Mountain Ash Berries really stand out against the snow

That's a lotta snow on this little twig

Low light makes this photo look like a painting

 It was cloudy last weekend, so here's a sunrise from June
