Photographer's Note

Goodbye to Winter ?
Boulder Lake
North of Duluth MN.

The title comes from a children's piano piece in the first of the Suzuki books.

When Winter first comes to the North Woods of Minnesota it always strikes me as draping the world in a still peace ... by this time of the year (March) I am going crazy and ready to see the Earth again ... hopefully we are almost their this year .. but one more look at some stillness.

This is one of my favorite shooting locations on the shore of Boulder Lake Minnesota. Boulder Lake is a partially man made lake. In 1919 a dam on Otter Creek merged three existing smaller lakes into Boulder Lake. The lake contains 27 miles of shoreline 98% of which is undeveloped. The area is protected by the Boulder Land Management Area (BLMA) and contains a great variety of wildlife including moose, wolves, eagles, and osprey. The shoreline also hosts the Boulder Lake Environmental Learning Center which hosts a large number of programs throughout the year.
