Summer Evening in the Minnesota Northwoods

It sure was a calm and colorful sunset earlier this week when I made this photo!  I hiked into this lake through a mosquito-infested forest to see if I might find a sunset worth photographing, and I sure did!  The clouds cooperated nicely and gave me this beautiful scene to capture with my camera.  As I was setting up my tripod and camera for the shot, a solitary loon called from across the lake.  I cannot imagine a better soundtrack for a scene such as this.  An unforgettable northern Minnesota sunset accompanied by the call of the loon... nothing could spoil that, not even the hike back to the car through an army of mosquitoes :-)
