Light the gap.
Catching a few rays along the shore of Lake Superior.

It would have been a much more peaceful evening if the mayflies hadn’t been in the middle of a major hatch and the mosquitoes hadn’t been so thick. But, that’s northern Minnesota for you.
This will be my last post from Minnesota this month as I am headed to Oregon later this week for an extended photo trip. I will be beginning with a sunset composition along the coast and then be driving back through the mountains, visiting Yellowstone and, I hope, Devil’s Tower. I am also planning to shoot some prairie homesteads and wide open spaces in the Dakotas.

One of those mornings at one of those spots where nature fills my senses.
Spring warmth and sunshine persuades these ferns to unfurl their greenery.
