Sometimes, well, lots of times, it’s fun to look at the world a bit differently.

Sand and Swans
During a visit to Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore there was not only lots of sand, there were also swans.
Divided by Water
Far from any developed area I discovered a series of human made drainage channels. I have no idea why they were created or what purpose they serve, but it does make for an intriguing image with the waterway dividing the autumn colors.

American Larch aka: Tamarack
The American Larch, also known as the Tamarack, is an abundant tree in northern Minnesota. In the fall it adds it’s brilliant yellow color as it mixes in with the now barren trees of late autumn.
“Place” Out Of Time
I’ve been driving past this “Place” for several years and have wanted to stop and photograph it but, it always seemed I didn’t have time or didn’t have my camera. Today I returned with time and a camera.
We don’t often get temps above seventy in October but, when we do, it behooves us to get outside and enjoy it. I choose to spend a few hours at Jay Cooke State Park enjoying the sound of the St. Louis River and waiting for the sunset.
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.
