Looking Up River

Early morning along the St. Louis River.

My Corner Office

I have finished my week of training as a Minnesota Slip Bridge operator and am now prepared to spend many hours this summer on duty with the bridge and near the water.  I’ve discovered that all the activities going on around the bridge can be very distracting and that one never takes their eyes off the bridge when it’s in operation.  Other than that, I’m looking forward to an exciting several months hanging out at the harbor.  After all, I’ve got a view from my office that’s hard to beat.

 

Retrospective: By A River

I went through a period of fascination with the whorls and swirls of river foam.  I managed to collect a large collection of images from different bodies of moving water.  Although I haven’t captured any photos recently, whenever I see the patterns on a river or stream, I always take time to enjoy the creation of this unique natural art form.  As is usually the case in nature, the patterns may, for awhile, seem to remain the same, they are in constant motion, evolving as the movement of the water keeps them swirling about.  This particular image makes me wonder if Vincent Van Gogh would have found inspiration in the patterns, perhaps creating a variation of “The Starry Night” with water.
