We've officially had our first snow here in the Keweenaw and even if you aren't quite ready for winter to have made its appearance, you have to admit that the white blanket draped over the ground, "cleans" up the landscape. With this photo taken by Steve Brimm, you can see what I mean. Just that little dusting of snow on the ground changes the scene to something bright, rather than just the leafless branches, the dried grass, and leaves spread out below. So see, if you aren't looking forward to this next season change, you now have at least one reason to look forward to the white array of winter.

Steve Brimm also had a shoreline shot with trees on the Pasty Cam back in 2001 on this day.

If you are a daily visitor to the Pasty Cam and haven't checked the daily What'sUP page lately, we have a one-minute slideshow every morning, reviewing this day's pictures over the past decade, to the peaceful sound of Simon Wolfe's Tiger Bay.

By the way, congratulations to Quincy Mine Hoist Association marking its 50th anniversary, in conjunction with the 100th anniversary of the #2 Shaft-Rockhouse, as well as the 160th Anniversary of the Quincy Mining Company itself. There's a banquet tonight in Houghton marking the occasion, with Larry Lankton scheduled to speak after the dinner. For more info call the Association at 906-482-3101.

Nice pictures!

Love that picture! It's certainly identifiable as a "Brimmage"!

I defintely agree that snow is better to look at than dead grass & mud. What some folks don't know is that the small ground cover plants suffer less from cold (assuming the air is colder than 32F) & dryness when they have snow on them.

A nice picture; down here it's rainy & gray.

Both great pictures for sure!

Nice photos! Now,when does spring begin?

By Brooke (Lovethekeweenaw) on Thursday, November 13, 2008 - 09:11 am:

The layer of snow is nice, and it doesn't seem as dark out either.

I think I may know the answer to this already but how does one get their photo up for the photo of the day?

Mary says: Ashley ~ It pretty much works just like Robert (here below) said. I look through the galleries for photos that are current to what is happening here in the U.P.
Feel free to drop me an email at to let me know whenever you've added something new to your gallery, so I'll be sure not to miss it. :->

Ashley I think it's just whatever happens to catch the editor's eye in the photo galleries. I've had a couple of my pics chosen and I never did anything special like say "hey this would be a great pic of the day, you should look at it." Just submit the bestest pic of the UP that you can and hope it gets noticed.:)

Nice pictures , Made a trip to Lynchburg, Va.. The trees are just about to drop their leaves. The mountian's are awsome. But I'll take the Keweenaw any time. One little bit of information stay off of route 501, in Virgina.
