One of the gorillas at the Como Park zoo in St. Paul, Minnesota.  I can’t help wondering what he is thinking as we all stand around and stare at him as he stares back at us.

The Flow

Late evening along the St. Louis River as it flows through Jay Cooke State Park in Minnesota.  This beautiful park is home to amazing rock formations, rapids and waterfalls.  A trip across the famous swinging bridge will take you to several vantage points to view the river and allows access to hiking trails in the park.

Fury

Fury

A solid northeast wind with all of Lake Superior to gather ahead of the gale means furious waves at the western end of the lake.  On Saturday, April 14th, we had such a day and it became a tourist event with all accessible locations crowded with sightseers…and lots of photographers.  At one spot there was even surfers.

Canon 5DS, Canon EF 28-135mm, ISO 50, 135mm, f/10, 1/50 sec.  Processed through Adobe Lightroom and Silver Efex Pro 2.

Waiting for Better Weather

When warmer weather returns, people will once again sit and enjoy the scenery from this bench.  For now, other than some intrepid ice anglers, no one is about, all is quiet, all is frozen.

Still Life

Sometimes a group of objects will grab my attention.  And not just the objects, but also the light and shadow interplay with the group.  This group was on the sidewalk as part of a store display along the Nicollet Mall in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  The various shapes, lines along with the light and shadow made me stop and spend time with the collection.

Canon EOS 7D, 26-200mm lens, ISO 1000, 85mm, f / 18, 1/400 sec.
