We stopped to have a late lunch at the New Scenic Cafe. It poured the entire time we were having lunch. As we looked out the window we could see a ship heading for Duluth. After lunch we decided to see if we could catch the ship as it came into Duluth.
When we arrived in Canal Park it was just starting to lighten up. This is a shot to the south where it was still lightening out.
We spent most of the time waiting for the ship watching the kids play in the water along the breakwater. I also managed a shot of the Tug Bayfield which sits outside of the Maritime Museum.
The CSL Niagara finally passed under the Aerial Lift Bridge bringing to an end a long day.
Those of you who follow my blog know that I like to photograph the sunrise in Canal Park. It is probably because I can’t see the sunrise when I’m home on the farm because of all of the trees.

Duluth Harbor Lights
On my trips down to Canal Park I usually end up with some photos that I put into my odds and ends category.
This first photo is the Tug Bayfield that sits outside the Maritime Museum. Photo was taken at dawn using multiple shots to capture the range of light.
While I was photographing the sunrise I happened to look back at the Duluth Aerial Lift Bridge and notice some beautiful light coming off of the clouds.

The Ark of the Anthropocene was an art project gone wrong. It is a 4,000 pound sphere which contained a terrarium with more than 50 plants. On Tuesday it was lifted into the harbor behind the DECC and was anchored to the bottom of the harbor. On Wednesday the creator was checking it and noticed it was sinking. A crane was brought in to lift it out of the water. I found it sitting on the dock near the DECC.
