gooseberry falls flooding june 2012 duluth, mn
from flickr user figzphoto
Taken June 20, 2012, this long exposure photo of Gooseberry Falls along Minnesota's north shore of Lake Superior captures the extreme flooding the Duluth region suffered due to extremely heavy rainfall across much of the area. Although the area has recovered, much of the damage to streams and rivers will last for the forseeable future. I chose this photo because, to me, the flooding from June along the north shore stuck out as the most memorable event for much of the summer. The photo itself is striking because the photographer managed to find artistic value amongst a very destructive event.
