The photographer says: As you can see, if you go out on a photo excursion with me you stand a good chance of becoming my subject.

This is Medusa of the North Star Roller Girls roller derby team. The North Stars had done an exhibition bout in Superior, Wisconsin, the night before. Now 'Dusa and me and slowtypist and some others were out on a photo excursion on the beautiful North Shore of Lake Superior.

We hung in there until twilght. I turned around and saw this. This is *not* photoshopped! It's exactly what I saw. Oh, except Dusa first smiled with her scarf up, then realized and pulled it down.

I'll come out and say it, I love this photo. Nice work sticking it out in the cold temperatures.
