Old Iron Ore Dock On Lake Superior

Located in the upper peninsula harbor of Marquette, Michigan, this old iron ore dock was once a busy port, servicing large freighter ships to transport raw materials throughout the great lakes for distribution. Years later, the structure has since been disconnected from the railroad system and remains idle. Visible along the left side of the picture is the harbor break wall, shielding the area from often rough waters on Lake Superior. This textural, vintage photograph is available in my galleries on a variety of printed items: Fine Art AmericaSociety 6 and Zazzle. Enjoy!

Iron Ore Dock Interior, No. 2

Here’s my rendition of the inside of an iron ore dock located in the downtown harbor of Marquette, Michigan. Based on an analog photograph from the 1970’s, this interior chamber has a length of approximately 500 feet, with a ceiling height of 60 feet. The octagon shaped pools of water stretched from end to end, serving as structural buffers to displace strong waves during storms, and, during sunny days, casting refracting light through the water as colorful reflections across the pillars and ceiling. Please visit my gallery at Pixels for a selection of prints. Note: this is the second version I’ve designed, this time looking back in the opposite direction. The first version can be seen here. Enjoy!
