Unfazed
from flickr user Bob Israel
A long exposure taken up close as one of the many midway rides at the Minnesota State Fair spins rapidly while the ride operator leans in a casual manner. I love the action captured in this photo when contrasted with the nonchalant attitude of the ride operator. This is probably one of the most peaceful times captured at the Minnesota State Fair.

The calm waters of one of Minnesota's 10,000-plus lakes after the sun has set make for a serene setting draped in black as a well-kept dock juts into the smooth water on a lake along northern Minnesota's Gunflint Trail.

Minnesota Spring
from flickr user Ernie Vater
A field of wild Lupine on a warm spring night in Minnesota set aglow by the setting sun. A sure sign that summer is upon us. I took far too much time making the difficult decision of the best of MinnPics for June 2014 but a field full of lavender flowers illuminated by the perfect sunset makes the time spent much more worth it.

Minnesota Landscape Arboretum
from flickr user Elizabeth Nemmers
There is truly nothing like the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum in Chanhassen to capture the essence of spring. This photo of a boardwalk through one of the wetland areas shows off the saturated green of leaf-covered trees against a blue sky. With the extended winters we've had for the past two years, it's scenery like this that makes the long wait well worth it.

Best of MinnPics - April 2014

Still Snowing in Minnesota
from flick user Shawn Christie
While April is typically the dawn of spring in Minnesota, 2014 brought more snow as our extended winter dragged on. This photo, as the photographer explained, shows a CP as well as a DM&E locomotive pulling their load at restricted speeds through the heavy falling snow toward Loretto, MN. Normally I would be drawn to beautiful scenery but sometime the weather itself, no matter how depressing it is to some, makes for a truly striking photo.
