I woke up about an hour before sunrise to drive down to Brighton Beach in Duluth, Minnesota to photograph the sunrise. The weather report the night before said cold but clear weather. As I drove out of the garage I noticed it was snowing. I thought about turning around but since I was already up I continued on to Brighton Beach.Brighton-Beach-Sunrise-14-3-_1162

I could see lights out on the ice which meant the ice fisherman were already out on the ice. I could also see a sliver of clear sky on the far horizon so there was hope for at least a brief sunrise.Brighton-Beach-Sunrise-14-3-_1087

As I walked on onto the ice I noticed that the cracks were about five times wider than they were the day before. Never-the-less ice fisherman were streaming out onto the ice. Some of them were going way out onto the ice.Brighton-Beach-Sunrise-14-3-_1114
