Category Archives: Blue Hour

I don’t get a lot of sleep when I’m in Duluth. I’m usually up before sunrise and watch for ships until sunset. On this day I got up for sunrise and drove down to Canal Park. It was obvious there was not going to be a sunrise so I drove down to Rice’s Point. I had been wanting to take some night photos in this area but hadn’t gotten around to it. This is a photo of the Arrowhead and Blatnick bridges.


It was the blue hour so I managed to get some photos with a deep blue tint. The Paul R. Tregurtha was loading coal.

A bit later I took a photo of the Arrowhead Bridge.



It’s been a while since I’ve photographed at Dawn on the Lakewalk. The last time was several years ago in the summer when I was photographing by the War Memorial and almost stepped on some folks sleeping in among the rocks along the shore.

Generally I don’t go out to photograph unless there is going to be a sunrise. When I woke up there were no stars in the sky but the weather report said dense fog so I decided to go out anyway. The decision is always easier when dawn is at 7am.

Turns out there wasn’t any fog and it was cloudy. Nevertheless the colors of the city lights bouncing off of the clouds provided some nice color.
