Marquette Upper Harbor Sunrise Over Ore Ship

The beauty of the UP never stops.

Marquette, MI07/25/11 – Early morning risers were treated to another great sunrise over Lake Superior in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula today. A freighter voyaging out of Marquette’s upper harbor provided a great photo opportunity for anyone gazing past the ore dock.

Waiting for the perfect moment.

Presque Isle Park provided the best location for the perfect timing required to grab a snapshot of the sun rising right over the exiting freighter. I literally chased the ship from the lower harbor to Presque Isle Park waiting for the sun to finally appear over the horizon.

The freighter went out past the break wall so a chase was imminent for the perfect shot.
