With August being a traditionally hot and sticky month, people tend to retreat to the lakes in the northern reaches of Minnesota and with those retreats come scenes of expansive lakes and quiet natural areas. This nighttime photograph, a long exposure, captures the blanket of stars which come out to play at night as well as a large lake and a streaking meteor. Awash in striking shades of blue, this photo was a logical and non-traditional choice for the best photo of August.
