Heart-wire fence

The forecast was for snow, and I was looking forward to seeing this part of the state under a thin white layer. The idea of it fit the vision in my head images I wanted to bring back from a quick trip to the northern part of the Texas Panhandle.

There wasn’t any snow, not even the tiniest flake. But the next best thing – fog! – hung around all day long, giving me lots of chances to make gloomy images in the fragile light, like this vaguely heart-shaped wire holding together a fence.

Yes, this is what I came to see

Like everyone else who travels to Lake Superior seeking the view, I found it.

Bright water in the dark forest

Everyone we met in Minnesota advised us to visit this state park.* They obviously weren’t wrong.

*State park admission is free, which is really cool.

Catch of the Day

The Minnesotans where we stayed told us many times that the lake was unusually smooth, so I guess it was. But I guess these fishermen (fisherpersons?) were happy about it.

(Also, that skinny strip of land in the background is Wisconsin. I knew you were wondering.)

Whipping into the storm

One of my regular commenters (you know who you are) said, in response to this picture from earlier in the month, “I hope you did another shot somewhere just of the sky. Deserves to be more than just supporting cast.”

And so, here we are.

And, here we are with yet another song reference as a title. Because that’s the way I am.
