January 2020 - Chasing Sea Smoke

About the Image(s)

The photos and video in this iMovie were taken on my Canon 60D using my Canon 24-105mm and 70-200mm on a tripod. I purposely planned on capturing the sunrise on New Year's Day 2019. This day was very cold (-30F) and I realized that there was a ship coming into the Port of Duluth-Superior. The sea smoke was thick as it is formed when very cold air moves over warmer water. Sometimes it looks like a tidal wave! I was able to capture the Tim S. Dool coming into port and arriving in Superior, WI a short drive over the Blatnik Bridge to which you will see the boat passing under. The ice was thick in Superior Bay and several ice-breaking tugs helped the ship to her final destination. The tugs push and maneuver these large cargo ships to their final berth. It was a great day to start the year!

Thank you for sharing this beautiful video, Love it!
1. Video captured under the freezing condition
2. Video and music exactly match the slow-to-fast/quiet-to-joyful rhythm of sunrise scenery
3. Smooth motion footages with tripod
If in editing resize the still photo images to 9:16 ratio to match the video dimension   Posted: 01/17/2020 22:13:38

I enjoyed your video very much!! I truly wish that you weren't leaving our video group. We have only had the opportunity to view two of your videos and I loved both of them.

This video was very well done and just watching it made me feel cold. As a child, I lived in Superior, and I can very well remember how cold it got.

I really liked the music you used.

Hi Kathleen,
Thank you for sharing this video. Short but lovely editing. The clips with smokes and ships in between gave a elaborate idea about the subjects. Nicely done. Great work. Loved it. Thanks again.   Posted: 01/30/2020 15:05:25
