2022 #OptOutside Jay Cooke State Park

Once again I chose to skip the mayhem of Black Friday shopping and join the many who prefer to spend time outdoors rather than in lines at the mall. This year I was accompanied by family and friends at Jay Cooke State Park, which, like all Minnesota state Parks, was open to the public for free admission on Black Friday.

Here are a few of the images from the day.

I have not often seen this type of banding in the morning sky, but thought it was pretty interesting.

A Tough Choice

Horizontal or vertical? For me, it’s a tough choice as to which one I will print. On the ledge rock at Gooseberry Falls State Park in northern Minnesota with a Fujifilm GFX 100s and Venus Optics Loawa 17mm lens.
