Skyline Parkway is a scenic drive through the hills above Duluth Minnesota. It is a 28 mile route that was begun in 1889 and a must drive for visitors to the area. The route has many scenic overlooks and passes by the Enger Tower park where you can climb to the top for an even more spectacular view of the city of Duluth and Lake Superior. In the summer, the gardens are in full bloom.

One of my remaining lenses for my Canon cameras is a Canon 100mm 2.8 macro. The first image I chose to allow a bit of background bokeh and the other I used focus stacking.
At the base of small waterfall is a pond which serves as a collection place for the leaves as they fall from the trees. Should we get more rain than we’ve been getting, the leaves will be flushed from this pond and make their way to Lake Superior.
A bit of intentional camera movement, a bit of post production and a smidge of creative interpretation leads to flaming fall color. A little something along an October Road.
I had to travel some back roads in Wisconsin the other day and, of course, I had my camera bag with me. The further south one goes, the more fall color you’ll see. On this particular day, there was little if any breeze and the lakes and ponds were marvelously still. So, take a little trip down an October road with me. Oh yeah, if you’ve seen my work before, you know things might get interesting.
Nice to see autumn color still putting on a show after returning from North Dakota where I witnessed the aftermath of their recent snow storm.
A moment of serenity in autumn along Keene Creek, Duluth, Minnesota.
Canon 5DS, ISO 100, 35mm, f/6.3, 1/30 sec and a few artistic touches.
At the end of the road is the boat launch, will have to return on a better day with a boat and fishing rod.
