We went away to Duluth, MN on a trip for my birthday this past summer. It was the hottest week of the year, with temperatures of 100°F and a heat index of nearly 120° on one afternoon. I had trouble sleeping the night before, so I got up and sat on the balcony of our hotel room waiting for the sun to rise on my birthday.

With all the heat, the skies were a bit unsettled and there was some cloud cover so I waited for several hours for the sun to finally make its appearance. I was rewarded with this gorgeous sunrise shining on Lake Superior, it was a wonderful birthday present! 🙂

This was one of my favorite shots because I loved the seagull on the horizon line. I hope you like it too!

As always, thank you for taking the time to look and for your comments and encouragement!
