as it meanders along the way

winter

Good Morning Venus

Good Morning Venus

Venus soaks up the new day
Reflecting in the Bic blue sky

Even the trees reach to hug
Her translucent beauty

Good Morning Venus, my love

The ice forms around the pilings
Like plaque around an aging tooth

Snowman

Living in a land that is covered with snow for 1/3 of the year I found the only way to survive is to get out in the elements.
We have snowshoe’d in weather as extreme as negative 20 degrees, photos of frozen hair to prove it. There are some who say “your nuts” to those I merely smile and say “yes, I am”!
The tree and snowscape was taken at a local state park Wild River State Park in North Branch, MN
The image of the man in the snow was taken during a photo shoot with a kindred spirit and friend.
This is my attempt at merging spirits, Mother Earth, Old Man Winter and a wise Shaman.


Thaw 2012

Lake Christine | Lutsen, Mn 2012

“A lake is a landscape’s most beautiful and expressive feature.
It is Earth’s eye; looking into which the beholder measures the depth of his own nature.”
― Henry David Thoreau, Walden

Misted Path 2012

Snowmobile Trail | Lutsen, MN 2012

“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious.
It is the source of all true art and all science.
He to whom this emotion is a stranger,
who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe,
is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.” ~ Albert Einstein

Green 2012

Silver Lake Park, 3 Rivers District | MN 2012

When living in the land of ice and snow, or in the case of this winter…
brown and gray
Green is always a welcome color, now just waiting for the smell of fresh cut grass and earth

Knowing this too will evaporate into a memory

Red Squirrel Totem 2012

Red Raven Retreat | Willow River, MN 2012

One of a family of seven. The woods were moving with curious red tails all afternoon.
The chatter and whistles of 6 babies old enough to run as momma looked on from above.
