Designed by nature, showing for a limited time only. When the sun shines and the ice melts it will be time to find new creations.
Areas of light and dark in the small crevices along the shore highlight the abstract patterns in ice.
Frozen, clinging to the rocks above water in motion.
There’s nothing like a little sun, a lot of water and some time to wander the shoreline. Even in the cold of northern Minnesota there is reason to explore the nooks and crannies of the rocky shore of Lake Superior. Being an ice hunter, I go searching for the creations of nature while they persist, but knowing that what exists today will be gone tomorrow. However, in it’s place will be new creations formed by wind, water and cold.
When you get too close to Lake Superior in winter, you run the risk of being frozen in place till warmer weather releases you.
My stop at Gooseberry Falls State Park gave me the unusual opportunity to have the falls all to myself, a very rare experience. I guess it pays to get there early and be willing to be out in single digit temps.
