Grassy Island Lighthouse Range Green Bay

Grassy Island Lighthouse Range Green Bay

Grassy Island lighthouse range used to be north of Green Bay, Wisconsin.  The range was relocated by the Coast Guard Station in Green Bay, next to the Yacht Club grounds.

The grounds are off limits to the public but the public boat launch is right next door.  Excellent view of the lighthouse, Leo Frigo Bridge and sometimes even freighters coming in at sunset can be seen from this location.

This print of the Grassy Island lighthouse range Green Bay was taken at sunset from the water.   The print has a soft pastel glow to the sky and breakwall of the Yacht club along with a few boats can be seen in the background.

The print would make an excellent addition to any lighthouse lover’s collection.

The SS Calumet freighter is in the bulk freighter class. Bulk freighters carry unpackaged bulk cargo like grain, coal, cement, and ore.

The Calumet has an interesting past.  It was sold three times and named four, since 1973.

The SS Calumet Freighter History

Name One

The SS Calumet was built in 1973 by the American Ship Building Company in Lorain, Ohio as the William R. Roesch for the Union Commerce Bank, Ohio, and managed by Kinsman Marine Transit.

Name Two
In 1994, she was transferred to Oglebay-Norton.  She was renamed David Z. Norton, after company founder David Zadock Norton on March 31, 1995.

Name Three
In 2006, Oglebay-Norton sold its fleet of River class ships to Grand River Navigation. The Norton was renamed David Z..

Name Four
The ship was sold to Rand Logistics in 2008, being renamed Calumet, after the original Calumet, built in 1929 for US Steel, which was scrapped in 2007.

I captured her at sunset on a warm summer night.  Just as she was pulling into the Port of Green Bay, Wisconsin to offload.

Main Street Bridge Green Bay at Night

Main Street Bridge Green Bay at Night

This print of the Main Street Bridge Green Bay at Night was taken on a very calm night. Along the Fox River in Green Bay, Wisconsin, a person doesn’t get too many still nights for trailing reflections in the water.  The stillness of the night and the fact that the nights are getting warmer make it the perfect time to get out and capture bridge photos.
