On her way to work Wednesday, Brandi Archambeau saw the scene in today's first photo, with the Portage Canal waters looking like glass and she had to stop to capture the Lift Bridge reflection there. You can feel the stillness in this photo, with not even a small ripple in the water. Beautiful.

The remaining two photos come to us from Donna MacIntosh, who captured a great late fall photo of the Quincy Mine Shaft, a Keweenaw Heritage Site. I thought it would be neat to include Donna's photo of the shaft house, since it overlooks the Portage Lift Bridge so directly and the info sign is pointing in the direction of the bridge besides.

Then in the bottom photo, Donna has captured the look of late fall along Keweenaw Bay, which is actually an unusual shot for those of us this far UP North, since we are snowless as of the typing of these notes. That is supposed to change over the weekend from what I hear, with some snowflakes beginning to fall again.

Hey Brandi, when I saw that first picture, I
wondered if it was yours. Nice job joining the
pasty family!!

Very nice!

You used to make these photo available in higher
resolutions (WOW). I loved to use them as
"wallpaper." Please consider something like this
again. I would love to used today's initial photo as
a background on my screen!

A nice set of pictures this morning. A perfectly calm canal, a piece of history and a couple of leaf less trees waiting for the snow. Great work girls, thanks for sharing.

What a nice assortment of pictures today. Each one
is lovely!

Nice Pictures! That first photo is pretty amazing! I don't think I've ever seen the Canal that still before!!

Each pic has its own uniqueness.
