Returned from yet another Canoe Trip!

mg_4379_80_81 mg_6393 Please forgive the long time since my last entry… even though I have not been very good about updating the website, I have been taking many photos.  I spent the last week of September in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness with 5 friends.  They spent much time fishing and I spent much time photographing.  We had spectacular weather and scenery.  We base camped 3 nights at Lower Basswood Falls then 2 nights on Fourtown Lake.  Please stop  by my Boundary Waters gallery and see my latest additions.

Back From Another Boundary Waters Trip

mg_6663_4_5 web-6296 I just returned from another canoe trip to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness in Northern Minnesota.  We entered at Seagull Lake and traveled through Saganaga and basecamped on Cherry Lake.  We had beautiful weather the first 4 days then a storm front moved through and gave us cooler temperatures, wind, rain and some snow.  Please take a look at my Boundary Waters gallery.

Ice at Pinicon Ridge

mg_1524 mg_1530 I visited Pinicon Ridge County Park, near Central City, Iowa today.  This time of year the terrain has been sort of blah, but looking closer at some of the ice formations near Horseshoe Falls, I saw some intriguing patterns.  These abstract patterns were a deviation from the type of images I normally capture… I had a great time until my feet got cold :-)

Visit to Mines of Spain

mg_9331_2_3 mg_9524_5_6_hdr-ps I visited Mines of Spain Recreation Area near Dubuque, Iowa yesterday.  I had intended to visit for a long time, but am very glad I finally made it.  There were many trails… some of which still show signs of damage from the heavy rains (approx.   14 inches this summer).  I hiked the Catfish Creek and Horseshoe Bluff trails.  The bluffs in the Horseshoe Bluff area were incredible!  I started to climb Horseshoe Bluff, but it was so steep, I opted not to go all the way to the top.

The Iowan Portfolio

mg_7206 Check out the Sept./ Oct. 2011 issue of  The Iowan magazine.  They used an eight page series of images that I captured at Lake Macbride State Park over the last two seasons :-)  I was fortunate enough to visit when a lot of water from Lake Macbride was going over the dam and the Coralville Reservoir levels were low.  Also, the Fall colors were incredible!
