Winter, a time of light and shadow, shape and texture, and the contemplation of simplicity.

Surfing on Lake Superior in Duluth
This gallery contains 60 photos.
On Friday, November 11th, I spent time on Park Point in Duluth to not only enjoy a cool snowy morning, but to also photograph the many surfers that came to ride the waves.
Making Tracks to the Outdoors
Today is Black Friday and once again I have chosen to #OptOutside. Minnesota State parks were open to the public with free admission today and I visited Jay Cooke State Park. It looks like I wasn’t the only one making tracks to the outdoors.
Between Light and Shadow
New snow and wind are creating new shapes and textures on the landscape.
On A Mission
Animal tracks in the snow seeking the summit?
So wonderfully shaped, yet so cold and uninviting.
The Temperance River flows into Lake Superior. The clouds on the horizon warn of an incoming snow squall that will make driving interesting as I head back to Duluth.
Every time I open Lightroom and see the images in the collection, I can’t help seeing something new. A little while later, something wonderful emerges. It’s almost, but not quite enough to make me wish we would get another good snow with wind so I can go out and capture more drifts.
I am constantly amazed by the wonderful fluid and organic shapes nature creates. When wind and movable particles work together, the results can be absolutely stunning. Whether walking along a road, a beach or an open field, I feel as though I am walking through the world’s largest art gallery. Come spring, the exhibition closes and we wait till the following winter to see a whole new exhibit of wonders provided free of charge to the viewer.
The Shape of Snow, Last One…Maybe!
Who knows if I’ll catch sight of another set of snowdrifts as I drive along a road in an open area prone to drifting? But, I suppose if that happens, and I have a camera, I’ll stop the car and spend time searching for the right combination of light and shadow inherent in snowdrifts everywhere.
