Spring Foam on the Pigeon River

Foam floating downstream on a spring day in Grand Portage State Park, MN.  The Pigeon River never fails to fascinate.  It has so many different moods and characters.  In some places it is wide and meandering, in other places it is wide and tumbling down rapids and in other places it is narrow and plummeting over dramatic waterfalls.  One of the widest sections of the river is just downstream from the High Falls gorge.  I find this area of the river super fascinating to photograph in all seasons. The other day it presented a view which is rarely seen.  A large section of water was filled with some of the most intriguing foam patterns I've ever seen.  It was a calm spring day and the water was flowing slowly past this location along the shore.  I was mesmerized by the constantly changing patterns in the foam. I could have easily watched it all day long :-)
