Video Archive: Ice Cracking on Lake Superior

The 2016-’17 winter hasn’t been great for ice on Lake Superior, but ten years ago was one of the most magical freeze-overs in modern memory. In this video from Feb. 18, 2007, Zac Bentz captures the sounds of shifting and cracking ice off Park Point.

Video Archive: 1964 Great Lakes Adventure

detroit-to-duluth-mapThis 16mm film documentary was produced by Detroit Public Schools and the Ford Motor Company. It chronicles a trip aboard the Ford Motor Company freighter as it voyages from the River Rouge Factory Complex to Duluth and back with a load of iron ore.

The program is sexy throughout, but since it’s an educational film you might want the cheat sheet or Cliff Notes. The Duluth segment of the adventure starts at the 13-minute mark and ends at the 17-minute mark.

Much appreciation to the Detroit Historical Society for making this gem available to the masses.

Just Another Beach Day in Duluth

Where is the Leadership?

I will remind Mayor Larson that alligator attacks have been recorded in Duluth since at least 2011 as documented here. Just because she claims she didn’t see one on the beach yesterday doesn’t mean they aren’t out there ATTACKING INNOCENT CONSTITUENTS. It goes without saying that it will be hard to get re-elected if you are eaten by an alligator.

Duluth Mayor Larson MIA on Alligator Attacks

vlcsnap-2016-07-04-17h26m08s625A plea for action. After all that Mayor Ness did to keep Lake Superior shark-free, now is the time for the Larson administration to finally step up and tackle the growing alligator problem. We demand RESULTS.

Duluth and North Shore featured in Surfer magazine

Surfer Aug-Sept 2016In the August/September issue of Surfer magazine, Justin Housman travels to Duluth to discover “that isolated Midwestern surf scene” on Lake Superior, where surfers “chisel boards free from the roofs of their snowbound cars, trudge through forests and thigh-deep snow, paddle out for a few frigid waves, then emerge from the water with icicles growing from their shocked, pink faces.”

Video: Summer Solstice Full Strawberry Moon over Lake Superior

Full Strawberry MoonDawn LaPointe of Radiant Spirit Gallery shot Monday evening’s Summer Solstice Full Strawberry Moon over Lake Superior.

“We were delighted when photobombed by the departing M/V American Century, a ‘thousand footer’ which transports iron ore pellets and western coal on the Great Lakes,” the YouTube description notes. “Minutes later the 740′ Whitefish Bay arrived under the same bridge lift.”

“Awaiting”, Sunrise along the North Shore


“Awaiting”, Sunrise along the North Shore

NL: It felt like it took a lot of experimenting, some minor frustrations and a heap of learning to make landscapes my photographic focus, but in hindsight that interest developed a long time ago. I’ve always had a love of nature and being outdoors and moving to a very outdoor-centered area of Minnesota helped me look at my surroundings in a different way. I was spending more time on trails, on the shore, sleeping in our many state parks, living through the hottest 10 days of our summer and diabolical winters. All of these things inspire what I look for in a subject or composition, and shape my overall style.
