We often take an evening walk, and, when we travel, the scenery on our walks varies a lot. Some nights what we see is frankly a bit boring, but other nights (like the one in Minnesota’s Grand Marais) it’s pure magic.
We continued on and came across an overgrown path. In the low light, we hesitated before continuing but then realized it led to the breakwater for the Grand Marais harbor.
We came back another night to see the town beach at sunset. We looked out to the Grand Marais Light on the breakwater where we’d taken the earlier photos.
When taking a walk at dusk coincides with photo opportunities, there’s not a lot of time to spare. We took our photos as quickly as we could. We tried to keep adjusting for the disappearing light and the changes in how we would photograph the water and rocks.
The quickly disappearing light gave us some of our favorite photos. Each group of images – the old buildings, the water and rocks at the breakwater, and the Lake Superior sunsets – say a lot about the great little town of Grand Marais, MN (population 1,351) and it’s long history as an outpost on the lake.
Who wouldn’t want to spend a few nights at a place named the “Mangy Moose Moose Motel”? 🙂
That’s a great name for a motel.
Everything about that motel was spot on!
It sounds like taking pictures in a smoky dusk in another part of the World.
Beautiful evening light, and Grand Marais looks like a great little place to make a stop.
Grand Marais was pleasant and we should note the food and drinks were up to a high standard! Tried their “best donuts in the world” and found them mighty tasty. They actually may be!
It looks like a lovely destination!
