Here is the Plan:

Next week, since it is a holiday, will most likely be a short work week for most and No School for Some students.

I will be shooting 3 sunrises and 3 sunsets M-W.

The idea is to make a small commitment and stick to it. Sacrifice some sleep, step into the cold and get some great pics.

Shooting 3 consecutive sunrises and sunsets increases the odds of getting some stellar images significantly.

There will be 6 different locations chosen. One for each sunrise and one for each sunset. All will be in the Duluth/Superior area as I am one of the suckers that has to work M-W next week.

Interested people only, reply here.

First two to respond get the spots. Only respond if you plan to keep the commitment.

Keep it on topic please. Off topic comments will be removed.

I'd be up for sunrise all three days...what time would we meet...I get off work a little before 6 am...
admin
JustinSinks 10 years ago
The times are:
24th: 7:24 AM/ 4:26 PM
25th: 7:26 AM/ 4:25 PM
26th: 7:27 AM/ 4:25 PM
(but, dawn and dusk times are 6:48AM/ 5:01PM)

Im still in, thats well before I have to be at work. Though, the 430pm time as a sunset seems off to me...
So when and where fearless leader! Ill even bring my tripod this time!

I may be down for some dawn ones as well... let me know where we're meeting and I'll see what I can do. I screwed up my ones this morning, so i'm itching to get back out there.
admin
Meeting spots will be posted tonight.

The point was supposed to be for you to commit for 3 days, 2 shoots a day, but it doesn't look like many can do that, so whoever wants to show up can.

I am in for FIVE of SIX shoots... if you are agreeable... I have my kiddies to deliver to school on Monday morning, and cannot participate in this... however... am all go for the other five...

This is now open to anyone on any day. Once I post the locations, show up if you can.

Enger Tower - Head up 21st Ave. West and take a right on Skyline Blvd.

Port Authority - Head to Wisconsin Via the High bridge, before crossing there is an exit to Garfield Ave. Take it and keep driving straight until you reach a large parking lot under the High Bridge.

Stony Point - Head North on Scenic 61, take a right on Stony Loop. Drive until you see an old wooden shack just off the lake shore on your right. Park and walk the trail in just north of the shack.

Billings Park Pier - Coming from Duluth, Take the Bong Bridge to Superior. After crossing the bridge stay to the right and you will merge onto Belknap, follow belknap until you come to a large wooden fishing pier. The pier is directly across from Spirit Mountain. If you look to your right as you go over the bong bridge you will see it.

Visitor's Shack - Heading east on London Rd, just as you cross the Lester river and just before Brigton beach (Kitcji Gammi Park) ther is a Bright Blue Visitor Shack on the lake side.

Undecided - Could be anywhere
admin
Justin, some others may be able to meet you elsewhere, but I am cutting it close with getting to work in the a.m. and will be driving straight to each location. Call me if you need help.

Amnicon SP?

Amnicon is a great idea, but I wouldn't make it there by sunset.


We should do Amnicon as a 1 day trip. I really want to scout it out.

Darn. I wish I'd found you guys early enough to get involved in this! I've just joined the group and am sooo happy I found it! You all seem like really active, enthusiastic photographers. As for this project? There can never be too many sunset photos. ;) Have fun!

Hey, if it's any where near a decent day weather-wise, and everyone promises not to point and laugh and my camera, count me in! Where will it be?
