"Sunstar Marsh"

This image was taken at Carlos Avery Wildlife Manage Area near Forest Lake, Minnesota. Carlos Avery has lots of open marsh area which makes it a great place to shoot sunrise and sunset shots. This was a warm day in August and I waited for the sun to get to the tree line to produce this sunstar, so it was just beaming down upon the marsh. I also manually blended two images to create this photo.

It's just starting to green up here.  But...two years ago on this date, we got a foot of snow.

The world around me has turned substantially greener in the last three days.

I hope the plant kingdom knows what it is doing.  This is still April, and this is still Minnesota.  It is still nearly a month before the last frost date.

Same here... But I have my potatoes planted and will likely plant some beet and carrot seeds tomorrow. What will come will come.

"Reflections On The Marsh"

This is an image I created in the spring of 2013 for a contest from the Carlos Avery Wildlife Management Area, which I won the contest. I had some dramatic clouds in the sky, and I wanted to use those clouds with the sunset as a reflective water scene. I used a low POV for this image. I hope you enjoy!

"Wetland Night"

This was taken at Carlos Avery Wildlife Management Area near Forest Lake, Minnesota where I live. It was a warm summer evening and there was a really nice sunset to go along with this marsh scene. Check out my blog where I tell a story with all my images. My blog also has many photography tips that you may enjoy> http://garyharrisimages.wordpress.com/

This was shot at F-16, with a 1/2 sec. Exposure Time, ISO-100, and 24mm Focal Length with a Polarizing Filter.

"An Evening At Carlos Avery"

Taken at Carlos Avery Wildlife Management Area. I was driving around one evening looking to create a sunset composition, and when I went down this particular road, I saw this amazing cloud formation, and decided it needed to be in my composition. I basically walked around to see the best way to fit this into my scene, and then just used what was in front of me to create this shot.

The room was clean and adequate, but the fire alarm went off at 3:59 AM, and the behavior of the fire department told me *they already knew it was a false alarm* (i.e. it probably happens frequently). There was NO apology, NO explanation, and NO form of compensation for having what had been a good night's sleep disrupted for a failing alarm system. The least they could have done was offered a free breakfast.

This relatively new Wildlife Management Area is a mix of restored prairie, oak savanna, pine forest, and river bottom. Parking is on the south side of Cedar Creek. Accessing the larger area on the north side of the creek requires crossing the creek, and there is no bridge. Waders might be in order if you want to cross the creek.

This is a large park with something for everyone. Hiking/skiing/horseback trails, archery, playgrounds, picnic pavilions, campground, Bunker Beach water park and a short walk to the golf course.
