Photos by Andrew Stewart

Mary Drew at Pasty Central (Mdrew) on Friday, October 26, 2007 - 07:47 am:

These two night time shots were taken by Andrew Stewart, son of Eric Stewart, who submitted them after first "getting the nod" to share them, from Andrew. Eagle Harbor seems to be all lit up and glowing, with the setting sun coloring the skyline. In that first photo, you can just make out the red of the lighthouse light at the top of the treeline, as it makes its rotation. But that second image, with the stars dotting the sky and the reflections on Lake Superior makes for a magical scene indeed. Eric points out that Andrew was able to capture both the red and the white light from the lighthouse as it turns round and reflects on the surrounding water. The actual beacon looks all white, but check out the glow in the water furthest to the right and you can see the combination of the two colors reflected.

Very nice shots! It's always daytime when we go by there, have to try it at night next year!

Good morning all you Yoopers and Yooper whannabe's.

Nice shots! I am wondering if they were done with a digital camera or film.

I love the pictures today. It is especially cool to see all of the stars in the darkness of the second picture. Great job, Andrew Stewart. Thank you, Andrew, Eric, and Mary for sharing them with us this morning. I love Eagle Harbor anytime.

Stayed at the Lakeshore (am I right on the name?) at Eagle Harbor on our honeymoon, July, 1972. That's the lit-up building on the right in the top picture. We saw the northern lights from our window. Wonderful place to stay. Is it still open? It used to be some kind of warehouse.

I like the first one with all the color from the sky in it, but I like the lights reflecting too!

We see this view every night while we are on vacation it looks like it was taken almost in front of the home we stay in and it is indeed a beautiful view. Thanks for the memories.

By Janet Boatman (Janetnwohio) on Friday, October 26, 2007 - 09:07 am:

I should have read first that is the home we stay in.

The hotel you are referring to was the Raley-Shapley warehouse, which was built in the 1850s and was the Lake Breeze Resort Hotel. It is now just known as The Lake Breeze. It is open from July 1st to Labor day.

Very nice pictures, never been to that area in the nighttime. Would be nice to see the ships on the lake all lit up.

Hubby and I have experienced the nites of Eagle Harbor, Eagle River, and Copper Harbor on many snowmobile vacations. Standing on Superior's shoreline deep in snow, the cold, crisp breezes sending waves crashing along the shores, the lights of the lighthouses....magical!

Beautiful pictures!! Always found it amazing how many more stars are visible at night in UP.

By Michael Poe (Mpoe) on Friday, October 26, 2007 - 12:46 pm:

Looks like part of the Big Dipper in the 2nd photo. The stars look so close!

By E. Neil Harri (Ilmayksi) on Friday, October 26, 2007 - 02:39 pm:

Nice shots neighbor. The Lake Breeze always reminds me of the views around Lahina, on Maui, when lit up in the summer.My grandfather, Gus Mannisto, worked on the project to convert the Raley-Shaply warehouse into a hotel in the 1920's.
