After leaving Grand Marais we took the Gunflint Trail to Bearskin Lodge. We stopped at the lodge for a brief visit. My wife checked out the accommodations for a potential winter ski trip.

 

We were up early. The sun was out but we weren’t sure for how long. My wife wanted to drive up to Bearskin Lodge where many of her relatives stayed during the summer. We took the Gunflint Trail out of Grand Marais. These were some of the views of Grand Marais from and overlook above the city.

We took a side road and ran into a small photography class at this cemetery. The scene at a child’s grave was very moving.

It snowed a bit yesterday so I took a walk through the woods looking for colorful leaves that had fallen. I found a nice spot and decided to take some abstract photos of the leaves. It’s always a fun project in the fall.

 

These were taken in my back yard.

These were taken 10 minutes later.

Wandering around the farm this past week I decided to create some abstract photos. These were taken by using a slow shutter speed and either rotating the camera, panning with the camera or moving the lens.

 

These are my favorite photography locations in Wisconsin. More photos can be found on my website.

Last of the fall colors on the Red Cedar State Trail.

 

We took a short fall hike on the Red Cedar State Trail. We noticed some folks ahead of us looking up into the trees so when we reached the same area we tried to find what they were looking at. We could hear a bird calling and soon found this Broad Winged Hawk sitting in a tree. We watched it for quite a while before continuing out hike. On our way back we found it was still in the same tree.

A last walk through the woods produced a few fall photos before the weekend snowstorm.
