Fog, Forest, and Water at Sunrise
Boulder Lake
North of Duluth Minnesota

Another shot from my favorite summer dawn shooting location on Boulder Lake (about a half hour drive North of my house).

This is a 153mm telephoto excerpt of the shoreline .. something I have been doing more and more .. trying to pull out these samplings of the palette at the light cuts through the morning mists .

I had thought it would be a dissapointing dawn ... I had set up down the road at Island Lake ... and the whole scene was enveloped by a thick pre dawn fog. So I hopped in my car and raced the fog up the road to Boulder Lake where I caught some images as the fog enveloped the sunrise.

is a similar telephoto of the opposite shore on the same morning.

Here is a wide angle of the whole scene on a sunny morning a year previous.

some more information on Boulder Lake:
Boulder Lake is a partially man made lake. In 1919 a dam on Otter Creek merged three existing smaller lakes into Boulder Lake. The lake contains 27 miles of shoreline 98% of which is undeveloped. The area is protected by the Boulder Land Management Area (BLMA) and contains a great variety of wildlife including moose, wolves, eagles, and osprey. The shoreline also hosts the Boulder Lake Environmental Learning Center which hosts a large number of programs throughout the year.
