Moon Rise Over Split Rock Lighthouse
The second was the moon rising above Split Rock Lighthouse Thursday night. Clouds covered the sky for most of the day. I didn’t think we would be able to see the moon but just as the sun started to set the clouds broke. I hiked down the shore just in time to see the moon casting its beam across the waters of Lake Superior. With the temperatures dropping to just below zero I seemed to be the only one that braved the elements to take in the view.
Just after taking this photo I saw the lights of an ore boat up bound for Two Harbors. Between the moon, the lighthouse and the lights on the thousand foot freighter I had to just sit there for several minutes taking in the magic of the evening.
