"Aerial Lift Bridge with Steam Devils"
Duluth's Aerial Lift Bridge stands tall admist a backdrop of steam devils on Lake Superior. Duluth was -10 degrees with a windchill of -27 degrees during this sunrise photo shoot.
In the winter, when the lake temperature is much warmer than the air temperature, the rising warm air condenses after passing the dew point, and the evaporation creates steam clouds. They are also known as steam devils or sea smoke. It is an incredible sight at sunrise, and is worth braving the extreme temperatures to witness.
