Time for a new header photo here at Minnesota Transplant.
For no better than reason than that I ran across this beautiful shot of my sister’s lake view in my father’s collection of photos. Yesterday, I shared a stunning night shot of the Eiffel Tower that he captured. He might not think of himself as very artistic, but he knows when to grab a camera (he has a sense for aethestics in his woodworking, too — maybe he does consider himself an artist).
Many things say “Minnesota” to me: Fried walleye, wild rice, a fresh snowfall, for example. But also, “lake.” Minnesota is the land of 10,000 of them. This photo captures the peace of lake living that my sister enjoys every day.
“For more people, we often marvel at the beauty of a sunrise or the magnificence of a full moon, but it is impossible to fathom the magnitude of the universe that surrounds us.”
