My favorite place happens to be where I live on Crooked Lake in Northern Minnesota's Itasca county up near the head waters of the Mississippi River and the Chippewa National Forest. Many photo opportunities present themselves right off my doorstep throughout the seasons. I had been down by the lake on a beautiful morning last September hoping to catch a nice sunrise to the east and make some photos. Once the sun had risen above the horizon, I gathered up my equipment and go up to have breakfast. As I turned to the west to head up the hill, I saw the man fishing and quickly grabbed a couple shots as the light and scene were quickly changing.
