Photographer's Note

Wild Rice Lake
North of Duluth, Minnesota

I had just picked up my younger daughter from her cello lesson. I was driving home ...I could see that it was going to be a wonderful sunset .. I reached the corner to turn South to turn or North up to the Lakes .. I turned north racing the setting sun up the road to Wild Rice Lake ... I lost ... I was so disappointed as I turned into the parking lot of the frozen lake just after the sun dipped below the horizon. I shot a number of images of the lingering light ... this one .. shooting out into an island on the lake with my 400mm has become my favorite .. and changed my perspective on that day .. although viewing the image you miss the experience about being badgered by my daughters about how cold it was on the lake shore ... my brother gave me a sign as a gift once it reads: having children is like being pecked to death by a duck.
