“Nature does nothing uselessly.”

Gull Lake, MN | July 2012

If my aim is true I head in the direction I intend.

My velocity is the effort I put into that aim and the depth is a product of that effort. 

If my aim misses then I must accept I have ended up in a direction differing from my vision but if I accept I will always better my depth.

Should time run out and I no longer can take aim and cast out, then it will be time to turn in and savor all that has past before.

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

Rock Hunter 2012

Lake Superior | Lutsen, MN 2012

My grandmother taught me how to hunt rocks
she showed me how to study and
delicately view each stone
to examine the qualities
texture, color, shape
when I feel the weight of a stone in my hand
there is a vibration, a connection
as if I am holding the hand of my grandmother

broken by the glided movement

Green 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

Reflection 2012

Frosty Reminder 2012

Silver Lake Park, 3 Rivers District | MN 2012

Dangling above and zoning out as I peered over the rail into the frozen lake
Embedded in the solid moisture is a reminder of another season
