Split Rock Sunrise
There is a lot to be said about being in the right place at the right time. On Wednesday morning, timing couldn’t have been better to capture the attached image of a beautiful sunrise over Split Rock Lighthouse State Park.
Seasonal travels of the earth places the sun behind Split Rock Light during March and again in September. As I was taking photos of Wednesday’s sunrise I was surprised to hear the sounds of an ore boat’s diesel engines coming around Day Hill. Usually they follow shipping lanes farther out from shore. I was praying the ore boat would pass behind the lighthouse before the sun got too bright. It couldn’t have worked out better. If it was possible, I would have sent the ore boat captain a thank you.
