Tranquil Night on Lake Superior

Here is another photo of Lake Superior and the night sky from this weekend at Temperance River State Park in Tofte, Minnesota.  For this photo I chose to look away from the galactic core of the Milky Way.  The big lake was so incredibly calm that night and many of the stars were reflecting nicely in the water.  Such placid nights on Lake Superior are few and far between.

Alone with the Universe

I find the night sky to be very therapeutic.  The experience of spending a beautiful night outdoors is unforgettable.  Last night was one of those nights.  I didn't want it to end.

Subtle Sunset Color

Nice subtle color in the clouds this evening as the sun was going down.  Great way to end a two hour fat bike ride.

First Light on Lake Superior Plate Ice

Lake Superior ice is always so beautiful, even more so when bathed in the warm glow of first light on a calm March morning!

Celestial Fantasy

I love the night sky... especially the brightly lit ribbon that is the galactic core of the Milky Way.  Even more so when it is shining brightly over the light of a rising crescent moon and the frozen shoreline of Lake Superior!  What an amazingly beautiful place to call home.
