Autumn Falls

An autumn view of the falls at Big Woods State Park.  The flow was quite heavy from all the recent rain which was a big change from the near trickle I experienced back in June.  I plan to come back and photograph the falls when there’s snow on the ground.  10/7/2017

Enchanted Forest Trail

Enchanted Forest Light

I took this photo at the end of a long and soggy day on the Superior Hiking Trail.  It had been pouring all day, but the rain magically stopped as soon as I stumbled into my campsite.  The forest came alive with golden sun rays pouring through the endless moss-riden trees.  This trail is located along the Lake Superior shoreline of Minnesota and is well known to backpackers.

Shrouded Mt. Gould

Shrouded Gould

Memories of a cloud-shrouded Mt. Gould from a few summers ago.  I took this photo on my way across Swiftcurrent Lake in Glacier National Park.  A ferry boat took us across Swiftcurrent and another ferry at Lake Josephine which led to the Grinnell Glacier trail.  Oh how convenient!

St. Croix Night Speck

At 10:14PM I took a moonlit exposure of the St. Croix River from our canoe campsite.  The moon was super bright and full that night so flashlights were almost unnecessary.  There is a red glow visible on the trees/grass from the camp fire.    f/8, ISO-800, 110sec.
