Split Rock Lighthouse
BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist
 
Split Rock Lighthouse
Split Rock Lighthouse
Along Minnesota's North Shore drive that goes from Duluth to the Canadian border along Lake Superior. HDR image from the same parent RAW file.

My pre-conceived notion of Minnesota has been shattered, after my wife and I took the 100 mile scenic drive. Tons of waterfalls, hilly terrain, rugged coast, harbors, and lighthouses.

Totally lovely, both of them. I've never been north of the Twin Cities in Minnesota, but after seeing these, I'm sorry I haven't.
