Superior beauty: Duluth shot wins Good Morning America photo contest

That photo above, of Lake Superior from Duluth, was named best weather photo of 2014 by Good Morning America this week.

It was taken by Duluth photographer Tim Mlodozyniec, on an early December morning. He submitted it for GMA meteorologist Ginger Zee's best weather photo of 2014 contest, and thousands of votes later, had beaten out snapshots of Chicago, Virginia and Colorado to snag the top spot.

"Thank you all for voting and making this happen!" he wrote on Facebook. "I appreciate all the support I received during this contest. It's quite an honor and very humbling to receive such support from an entire community! Just one more reason why Duluth is the best place to be!"

Mlodozyniec told the Duluth New Tribune he almost didn't snap the shot – taken from the Fitger's parking ramp – because it was too cold.

Nick Ulivieri, whose photo of the Windy City was the runner-up, posted a congratulatory message to Mlodozyniec on Facebook, saying in part, "Unfortunately, I think every resident of Duluth voted, and my photo came in a distant second - so a big congrats to Tim!"
