Great composition........wonderful fall color. I am taking my first trip along Minnesota's Northern Shore next week.....I am hope I get some nice spring water and maybe some wild flowers too. You have a great gallery with a ton of great images!!! #8648134

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.
