Autumn has always been my favorite time of the year. Despite the fact that Autumn signifies the coming of Winter, where in North Dakota the temperature can get to 30 below zero, I still adore this time of year. Having grown up by the lake, I almost enjoy the tranquility of Autumn at the lake more than the bustling of Summer. These are some photos I took a few weeks ago near Leech Lake in Minnesota. I was glad to have captured these as in a couple of months we will most likely have several feet of snow and 50 mile an hour winds and it will make me happy to look at these and reminisce about the day I took them.
