Skywatch Friday: Lake Superior Sunrise

I took this picture back in 2005 at sunrise on a cold morning in Duluth, MN. We had spent a weekend birding out at the Sax Zim Bog but had spent the night in hotel in Canal Park. I got up early and took the shot from the beach behind the hotel. The dilapidated building in the picture I believe is an old boat house that is now a part of the lake. The photo is a bit grainy because it was originally shot on film and then scanned into digital form. I have been finding that many of my old negatives are beginning to degrade so I am trying to get them scanned into the computer.

So often the sea is mirror calm just before sunrise. Nice shot.

I like a bit of grain.
The light is very beautiful - also the way the sunrise is reflected on the foundations of the hut (or is it a boat?)

This photo has such wonderful and clear colors. It looks like a photo turning into a painting at the bottom. Do you have Monet locked in your scanner?

What a neat picture!Sad to say,we're having the same problem with our older photos.

Despite the degredation the essence of a sensational image has been kept. I have scanned everthing I have ever done as negs really don't have the lifetime that digital does.

Very beautiful colors here on the horizon line. Lovely photo to share with the SkyWatch crew!

Very nice photo..the foreground looks very surreal. i wanted to make the photo larger by clicking on it to see what the foreground was all about..i still couldn't figure it out.
