Waves wash over breakwater basalt near Grand Marais, Minnesota. The Belt of Venus turns the sky pink.
I decided to wade across a shallow section of open water to get a picture of the Belt of Venus, which is the pink glow in the sky that appears opposite of the sunset (or sunrise). I set up my camera, and heard a wave crash loudly into the rocks that I was standing behind. I cringed and pushed the shutter. A large wave from Lake Superior had crashed into the rocks on the outside and created a winter waterfall. It was so cool! And, luckily, I didn’t get soaked.
