A typical summer storm on Lake Superior.
A ship passes the abandoned dock on its way to Duluth. Taconite dust stains the sides of its hull red.
A morning breeze pushes the last ice from the lake against Wisconsin Point.
Superior Entry’s lights, backlit by the aurora borealis. In the distance, you can see the lights of Two Harbors.
On top of the light hoop, 160-feet up, a ship comes into port, ready to load-up. If you look really close, you can see my shadow cast on the dock below, courtesy of the full moon.
As a storm moves across Lake Superior toward Duluth, an ore freighter anchors behind the Superior light station.

Peering out of the porthole of the light tower, I saw the shadow of the station on the lake.
