Location : Pattison Park

Brief directions: Get thee self to Superior. Find Tower Ave. Go South. Keep going until you reach the city limits. Then go south some more. About 2-3 miles out of the city you will see a sign for Pattison State Park. Turn left at sign. Voila, you are at Pattison.

GPS coordinates: Ummm?

Best season: Year round. Seriously.

Essential gear: Good walking/hiking shoes, tripod (or not), a willingness to do some possibly extensive walking/hiking, a bottle of water. Oh, and either a WI State Park Pass, or some cash for parking.

Notes: Pattison has waterfalls. Really beautiful waterfalls at that. Below is a picture of the river that goes into the waterfall that most people know about. However, in my stream you can also find a photo or two of the twin falls, which are located in a lesser known area of Pattison. Great hiking trails with fantastic river views and opportunities to see wildlife. (On my last major hike I saw a buck, although he was moving too fast for me to photograph him. He scared the s--t out of me actually.)

Start off by stating that i favor shooting automobiles. I plan on doing more for other people soon and we'll see were that goes. I don't really like hiking around to find shots of nature. I'll do it with friends, but it's not really my cup o' tea.

Location : Michigan St. and 28th ave W.
Brief directions: It's group of old buildings a block down from the Post office on Michigan and 25th ave. (I may be off by a block or 2 here and then.) They have been tearing it down lately unfortunately, it will soon be flat land I assume for new construction.
GPS coordinates: I don't have that.
Best season: I only found it this summer, and it will be gone soon, so NOW.
Essential gear: Your stuff. wide angle I guess.
Notes: It's going soon, it's old decayed industrial stuff.

Location : Duluth side under and around the High Bridge
Brief directions: I-35 Garfield exit to under the bridge area
GPS coordinates: unknown
Best season: I like summer best,but anytime is good
Essential gear: always have warm clothes handy
Notes: This area offers all kinds of harbor shots and great views of the bridge as well. The fishing pier and walkway extends out to near the center of the High Bridge near the shipping lane and offers great close shots of passing ships and other craft. The bayside just west of the concrete works offers great views of the High Bridge,passing ships and carriers loading at the coal dock. HIGH & LOW BRIDGE

dubswede: they're building the new heritage center, which will be a huge hockey complex, with two rinks, a hotel, and a brewery. cool shots -- I work at the post office and I always eye that place up but never managed to get any shots.
