Winter steam on the Mississippi River at Sauk Rapids, MN
from flickr user mijosc79
Taken December 30, 2012, this striking black and white photo of the Mississippi River at Sauk Rapids captures the early morning scene of steam rising from the water as much of the surrounding landscape is blanketed with snow. Chosen as the best photo of December, this was easy because it just spoke to me as what this December has been -- a contrast of two seasons as early in the month the temperature was in the upper 50s and lower 60s and by the end of the month the temperature was below zero.
