Photographer's Note

Morning Marsh, Mist, & Tree
Island Lake, North of Duluth Minnesota

This image was shot a bit after my last post. I drove a few minutes from the bridge I shot dawn from down into the lake margin (bog) on this small gravel road hoping to catch an early morning Loon, Heron, or something ( ... The heron in my my image For Marek - Like a Bird was shot from this small road.) ..

The scene that greeted me was beautiful .. The sun searing through the early morning mist on the bog. The sun is literally just off the left edge of the frame (just over the tree tops).

The biggest thing you are missing from my experience is the haunting cry of the loons (the state bird) .. that stayed away from my camera .. but they are an atmospheric part of morning in Northern Minnesota.
