I played hookey on Wednesday and spent the day in Taylors Falls MN. We went on the boat ride and it was a lovely day . . . but a bit too sunny for photographs.
I took this picture a decade ago. It is one of my most stolen pictures. The best time to get pictures like this is in August and September early in the morning.
Some of the people buried here died in wars and others served during wars. My Father-in-law was a WWll veteran. I never met him.
Normally I use a wide angle lens to photograph architecture and street scenes. This one was taken with a 100mm prime lens. I can’t get as close which is fine. I am going to keep experimenting and am looking forward to getting out for some night shots too.
I went out last Saturday looking for the spring wildflowers that bloom before the trees have leaves. I didn’t find any there was still a little snow in the woods and the ground felt frozen in spots.
I’ll go back in a few days and see what I can find. It looks like the park is undergoing renovations. This may be the last year that I see the native woodland spring wildflowers.
Taken in the Spring of 2011. Processed today. The road is a bike path I take to the Morgan trail along the river.
