This photo was taken at Shovel Point in Tettegouche State Park on Minnesota’s North Shore. It was taken after a strong winter storm created huge inland ice formations along the North Shore. More photos can be found on a blog I wrote after returning from the trip.
I recently donated the photograph to the Nature Conservancy. They included it as the lead photo in a slideshow they developed about getting outside in the winter.
The Minnesota Nature Conservancy also included it on their Facebook page.
