Category Archives: Double-crested Cormorant

My wife and I frequently walk down to Canal Park in Duluth, Minnesota to watch the ships arrive. On this night we were able to catch two ships as they arrived about an hour apart. The first to arrive was the Baie Comeau flying the Canadian Flag.

Between ships we walked out to the North Breakwater Light. There have been a large number of Double-breasted Cormorants hanging around the harbor this year.

There was some nice light and clouds behind the North Breakwater Light.

We watched the Herbert C. Jackson approach the ship canal.

Throughout the evening there were some interesting lake/sky photos.

Recently I was photographing the sunrise in Duluth, Minnesota’s Canal Park when I notice some nice reflections in the Ship Canal. This is a frequent photography location and landpools are a favorite subject of my but for some reason I have never taken any photographs of the Aerial Lift Bridge or the South Breakwater Inner Light reflected in the Ship Canal.Ship-Canal-Reflections-14-6-_5009

The above shot appeared in on the Duluth Daily Photo website a few days ago.Ship-Canal-Reflections-14-6-_5000

I was photographing the reflections when a Double-crested Cormorant popped up in the middle of the photo. The Cormorant had been fishing up and down the Ship Canal.Ship-Canal-Reflections-14-6-_4986

The next day I realized why I don’t have a lot of landpool photographs in the Ship Canal. The waves were so high that the water was flowing over the sides of the Ship Canal.

More photos from Canal Park can be found on my website.
