Grand Marais Moonrise 001
We watched the “Sturgeon Moon” rise over Lake Superior from the Grand Marais Harbor.
Grand Marais Moonrise 002
It was a calm warm August night.
Grand Marais Moonrise 003
Just the right amount of cloud cover gave the moon a bright orange glow.
Grand Marais Moonrise 004
There were several people out enjoying the beautiful evening.
Grand Marais Moonrise 005
A sailboat was heading for the dock. I snapped a photo just when it intersected the shaft of moonlight.
Grand Marais Waterfront
Right after photographing the moon we turned around to see the lights of the Grand Marais waterfront reflecting across the harbor with the Pincushion Mountains in the background. It was my favorite photo of the evening.
