Day Seven

Woodland Creatures!  Strange things are lumbering (lumber and trees go together) through the forest.  If you move about silently, you may just see one.

Water in Motion

NVM_0036-Edit-Edit

I love photographing water in motion along with the sound of the water as it flows by.  The St. Louis River is flowing unusually strong for this time of year due to heavy rain in northern Minnesota.  This is providing a wonderful spectacle in Jay Cooke State Park where it flows over an incredible array of rock ledges and falls on it’s way to Lake Superior.

The Photographer

Challenging weather days around Lake Superior brings out photographers trying to get that great storm shot.  It amazes me just how many people will brave the elements to come out and witness Lake Superior when the strong northeast winds bring big waves to Duluth.  We may not have hurricanes here, but Gitche Gummi can do her best impression of one.
