"Waiting for the next trip"
The passenger ferry "Voyageur II" waits patiently for its next voyage to Isle Royale National Park from its dock in Grand Portage, MN. This image was taken in late September 2010 as the Isle Royale boating season was winding down. The Voyageur II is a 60' aluminum-hulled ferry that has been providing mail and passenger service to Isle Royale National Park since the early 1970's. It is the only ferry that circumnavigates the entire island, making several stops along the way so hikers and paddlers can have options for hiking or canoeing/kayaking different portions of the island.

"Fire in the sky"
While driving down an old logging road off the Arrowhead Trail one evening, I came across this opening that had a grouping of trees that stood out nicely against the sky. I was passing by right after the sun had gone down and the sky behind the trees was filled with this beautiful orange glow.

"Long Island Sunset"
As its name implies, Long Island is a very long but narrow island in the Susie Islands. Only about 100 feet wide at its widest point, it is roughly one half-mile in length. This photo was taken at sunset over the East end of Long Island on August 30, 2010.

"Spring sunset over the Platte River"
A large group of cranes flies past the sun as it sets over the river. This group of cranes landed in a farm field on the opposite side of the river, but soon took flight again and landed on the sandbars in the middle of the river.
