The nearby pond has been frozen over for more than a month. In that time it has partially thawed and refrozen, been snowed on several times, and been rained upon. Each event has left its mark as textures and patterns that change daily and offer an endless variety of subjects for a photographer.

The river creates the patterns, the photographer documents and adds human touches to the creation.  Taken on a small eddy on the edge of the St. Louis River near Duluth, Minnesota.

Flying always presents a new perspective on the landscape of our world.  Flying over patterned farm fields shows that even farming has it’s artistic side.
