Presque Isle in Two Harbors
Earlier in the week I was down in Duluth for a couple of days and on my way home the clouds were looking good for sunset so I decided to head down to the lakeshore in Two Harbors. As luck would have it, two of the 1,000 foot ore boats were down there. One was just leaving; it was rounding the lighthouse and breakwall as I pulled into the parking lot. The other, the Presque Isle, was lining up and pulling into one of the docks. I quickly grabbed my tripod and camera and walked down to the water's edge where I made this photo. It's been a while since I've been this close to one of these big ships. They sure are amazing pieces of machinery!
