I couldn’t resist using the bent tree as a frame to hold the waterfall.
Morning sun filtered through the mist generated by Gooseberry Falls.
Morning light accents the roots of a cedar tree along the Gooseberry River.
Can you feel the water freezing, the wind howling and the snow blowing everywhere? This is northern Minnesota in the winter. Location: Gooseberry Falls State Park.
Big waves and freezing temps coat everything in their path with a glaze of ice.
Temp was in the mid-teens, very gusty wind off the lake and having to fight the blowing snow made the day challenging. On the ledge rock, along the shore of Lake Superior at Gooseberry Falls State Park.
In twenty-four hours, the weather in northern Minnesota went from warm and foggy, to an overnight thunder storm and then a snowstorm the next morning. Very strange weather for us in December but, it did make the north shore rivers and stream more interesting.
I was halfway through my day of photography when I noticed that I was shooting in manual mode. Not that this is a bad thing, it’s just that I thought I was auto focusing, which I wasn’t, and I missed focus on about half my shots.
This would have been a much better composition had it been in focus.
