Making Tracks to the Outdoors

Today is Black Friday and once again I have chosen to #OptOutside.  Minnesota State parks were open to the public with free admission today and I visited Jay Cooke State Park.  It looks like I wasn’t the only one making tracks to the outdoors.

Between Light and Shadow

New snow and wind are creating new shapes and textures on the landscape.

At The Edge

At the very point of Stoney Point along the north shore of Lake Superior was the dividing line of open water and ice.

The Temperance River flows into Lake Superior.  The clouds on the horizon warn of an incoming snow squall that will make driving interesting as I head back to Duluth.

Still Drifting…

Every time I open Lightroom and see the images in the collection, I can’t help seeing something new.  A little while later, something wonderful emerges.  It’s almost, but not quite enough to make me wish we would get another good snow with wind so I can go out and capture more drifts.
