Welcome to the Future
2020…it sounds very futuristic. In many ways, compared to what I’ve grown up with, it is the future, just not quite the one I was expecting. I raised myself on a steady diet of science fiction books and films, so I thought I would have a flying car by now. Sure, we have computers for home use that are amazing, smart phones, smart watches and even Artificial Intelligence, but where is my flying car? We can video chat with anyone around the world, we can travel long distances in short amounts of time, (if you don’t count going through security) but no flying car!
Oh well, here’s to the future as it is and a toast to what the future will look like for us photographers. And leading off the new year, here’s an image that caught my attention while hiking along the rocky beach in Split Rock State Park in northern Minnesota.
I’m guessing that the log was flipped by wave action which reoriented the icicles.
A Moment to Reflect
In the small places where the bigger waves don’t reach, the water is a bit calmer and there is a chance for reflection.
States of Water
Frozen, clinging to the rocks above water in motion.
Frozen In Time
When you get too close to Lake Superior in winter, you run the risk of being frozen in place till warmer weather releases you.
