Looking back at the number of freighter photos submitted throughout the years by Rod Burdick, you would think he'd be hard-pressed to come up with anything unusual featuring these big ships, but Rod has done it again with these shots today. Making an early morning visit to the Upper Harbor in Marquette, he snapped the rising sun, silhouetting the Laker Herbert C. Jackson at anchor. Then as if that first shot wasn't enough, he caught the Canadian Laker Saginaw as she departed from the Upper Harbor, having just taken on a load of ore. For many folks a sunrise photo is quite special and there are those that just love anything with a Great Lakes Freighter in it, but if you're a fan of both, then today is your lucky day

Not too far from here is where the George Sherman went down in today's episode of "Day in History"

These are beautiful!

Awesome shots, Rod! These 'beauties' sailing the beautiful Lakes are the main reason for me getting on the internet. My daughter, knowing how much I loved the lakers, gave me a 2 year subscription 6/7 yrs ago for 'Mom's Day', so I could see them at the Soo Locks, etc. Would still love to see them 'in person' once again, but alas, my travelling days are over.

I am sure we all love pictures of great lakes freighters. Just this week my brother Don and I had our 6th article published by INLAND SEAS MAGAZINE and it covered the "Copper Fleet" that consisted of 4 freighters built for the C & H Copper Company of Calumet.They carried bars and slabs of copper between Lake Linden-Hubbell dock to a smelter they owned in Buffalo. They were built in Duluth-Superior in 1901 and named:G.A.Flagg and Randolf Warner both steamers and their respective barges that they towed, the A.W.Thompson and the S.D.Warriner. The juxt to the article is that from glory days of shipping copper they ended their life hauling fertilizer on the Atlantic coast in 1926. Don and I served together as coalpassers aboard the SS Crispin Oglebay in 1957 while both were still students at NORTHLAND COLLEGE.

Great Pics, I'd like to be hanging out in my second hometown Marquette, maybe see if the Cats are playing hockey at the Berry Event Center tonight. Then, maybe a jaunt up Sugarloaf by the light of the moon!

"The juxt to the article is "

Now that's a new word for me!
Click → OneLook dictionary search: juxt, and in turn,
click → Urban Dictionary: juxt,
like that? <wicked grin>

FRNash,
Perhaps EddyFitz meant gist - the heart of a matter?

Nice boat pictures one was passing closely when I looked out after my shower this AM.

Could be. Of course you know I was "gist" joking, eh? <grin>
