Up early with the rising sun, Aladino Mandoli captured a beautiful silhouette of the Marquette Lighthouse that seems secondary to the brilliant rays coming up through the clouds. The dawn of the day has darkened the bright red of lighthouse for a few moments, taking center stage... nicely done! Fast forward to the evening hours, where Dino was enjoying the night life at Founders Landing on the waterfront. I'm not quite sure if the luminous, red sky is from the Marquette city lights or if that is the ending glow of the sun as it leaves us for another day. No matter what the cause, the effect is absolutely dazzling!

Last time I was in MQT, I confused the heck out of the nice lady working for the local tourism bureau at the visitor's center. I head heard something about a Joan of Arc chapel that was supposed to be at Marquette. Disassembled and shipped to USA directly from France, and reassembled inside a larger church.

Eventually I figured out that its at Marquette University in Milwaukee...but it was still a hoot looking high and low all over Marquette for it :D

Plus what boat or train nerd can get enough of the ore boats loading taconite pellets at the pocket loaders?

Beautiful pictures.

The top picture to me is spiritual!

Mary- Since the picture is looking north from Founder's Landing to the old Soo Line Ore Dock the glow has to be from Marquette. At the turn of the Century (1900 not 2000) Marquette was per capita of street miles, one of the most street lighted cities in the US. Many of the older streets still have far more lamps along their road sides than you find in this day and age. Oh how I miss my home town. -Steve

Wow! That's one really RED sky! Good for the sailors (and photographers)!

Todays silhouettes are fabulous.

Holy Moly! I seriously can't decide which of these pictures I like better. I love them both - they are both gorgeous!

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Friday, May 16, 2008 - 06:19 pm:

WOW! That first shot is absolutely beautiful!

By Mike (Upboundeh) on Friday, May 16, 2008 - 06:43 pm:

Gods grace peers through the clouds on the UP.

Thank you, Aladino, both photos are magnificent and leave me longing for home.
