In the land of the Dacotahs,
Where the Falls of Minnehaha
Flash and gleam among the oak-trees,
Laugh and leap into the valley. . . 

    --From "The Song of Hiawatha" by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Another shot from yesterday's adventure with +Janice Hackney, +mel peifer, and +Max Gort at Minnehaha Falls in Minneapolis.

I'm loving all the shots from this little adventure... (as well as some from a friend who hiked out on Superior to the Apostles to play in the ice caves!!!)  While I don't miss living in the Frozen North, I do miss how pretty all that ice and snow can be.

Fabulous adventure with +Max Gort, +Janice Hackney, and +mel peifer at the frozen over Minnehaha Falls today. Trekking with other photographers has always been a great experience.

Thanks to the buyer from Minneapolis, Minnesota, who purchased a framed print of Northrop Auditorium on the University of Minnesota campus. Enjoy your print!

Or even Michael Buble's version of The Best is Yet to Come, also good.

It was apparently a great day for painting, too! I especially enjoying listening to the instructor discussing the darkness of shadows, the luminosity of different colors, and the way the light behaved differently depending on the edges of the icy surfaces. It could just have easily been a photography instructor using those concepts.
