Icy Wonderland

High Falls Update!  Remember my post from yesterday about High Falls and the high water?  Well, the water level has dropped a bit but so have the temperatures.  What this means is all that spray and mist coming off the waterfall has been coating the sides of the gorge and all the nearby trees and shrubs with a thick layer of ice.  Talk about an amazing, unique and beautiful thing to see!

November Rush

High Falls of the Pigeon River in Grand Portage State Park, MN on November 29, 2016 after 3 inches of rain and several inches of melted snow brought the river level up 7 feet!

A quiet night on the back roads

I made this photograph earlier this autumn along Arrow River Road in Ontario, Canada.  I was out looking for the northern lights, which were supposed to make an appearance that night.  All I could see in terms of the northern lights was the faintest glow of light coming from behind the clouds.  It never got any brighter than what you see in this photo.  It was also a full moon that night, which is why the foreground is so bright. 

First Snow

Beautiful back-lit falling snow along the High Falls Trail in Grand Portage State Park, MN.

Afternoon Eagle

A couple of weeks ago I was driving home from Grand Marais and saw this beautiful eagle perched in a tree overlooking Lake Superior.  I always love seeing eagles.  A sighting of one always brings such joy to my day!
