Living in northern Minnesota means having to live through often harsh winters. However, having spent nearly thirty years working outdoors combined with a lifetime of playing outdoors, I choose to embrace the challenge of winter. Rather than staying home hunkered down, I journey out to see what nature is putting in front of me if I go looking. A lot of my searching is along the shore of Lake Superior. In winter, depending on wind and waves, the shoreline can change from day to day, or in minutes. When the temperatures drop, ice patterns form in the crevices and pockets of the ledge rock along the shore. A few of my favorite places to search for these patterns are Stoney Point, Two Harbors, Split Rock Lighthouse State Park and Gooseberry Falls State Park.
I feel very fortunate to live close to this lake and it’s surrounding beauty. Coming next, an examination of the icy abstractions I’ve discovered.
Wonderful winter landscapes, David.
