Captured along a northern Minnesota back road.
I recently traveled around parts of North Dakota and had time to capture a few shots that I felt give a sense of the open spaces that exist in the western part of our country. One of these days I hope to spend time slowly exploring these wide open places under the big sky.
In winter, Lake Superior creates with ice. Whether it’s by flinging it up on shore with gale force winds or simply by letting the surface freeze, something wonderful will result. On this particular day the sun was absent and the air was hazy, this spoke to me as perfect for monochrome imaging. This set of images were taken from the shoreline at Leif Erickson Park in Duluth. By the way, if you want to wander around the shoreline, bring ice grippers.
A bit of intentional camera movement, a bit of post production and a smidge of creative interpretation leads to flaming fall color. A little something along an October Road.
Nice to see autumn color still putting on a show after returning from North Dakota where I witnessed the aftermath of their recent snow storm.
