Colorful November Sunset


 









Beautiful sunset over Lake Superior this evening. The colors and wisps of clouds were really interesting.

Early Winter on Swamp River


 









A cold November day on Swamp River in Grand Portage State Forest.  Located in northeast Minnesota, Grand Portage State Forest is one of my favorite places to explore. It offers rugged terrain and amazing scenery and lots of opportunities for spotting a variety of wildlife. It's a beautiful place any time of the year. 

November Redpoll


 









Caught this cute little fellow while out for a drive in the woods on Veteran's Day. There were several more in the area but this is the only one that was willing to sit still long enough for a picture.

Early Winter Beaver


 









On a snowy afternoon in late autumn, this beaver was enjoying what could be the last bit of open water that it sees for quite a while.

Young bear in the crab apple tree


 









There were quite a few bears hanging around this fall, many of them yearlings. This is the most recent one that we saw and he was hanging out in our crab apple trees off and on for several days. Thanks to my 600mm lens I was able to get some nice up-close shots of him from a safe distance away.

Fading Colors











Our fall colors have been done for a while now but I still have a few photos of them to share.  These two were taken a couple of weeks ago after all the maple leaves had fallen and all that remained were the birch and aspen leaves.  The patchwork of color made for some interesting views.
