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.

We drove as far as Duluth once --eons ago -- and found that beautiful and interesting. Guess we'll have to go back and venture farther. This is a stunning photo, Ken. Congratulations on the finalist -- I'm sure it will go on.
