Sunrise in the woods

Sunrise in the woods – Finland, MN

I didn’t have time to hike far enough so that I could actually see the sky but decided I could probably get some photos through the trees. The woods are beautiful in the fall in Northern Minnesota and instead of a traditional sunrise photo I got something a little different.

I spent some time in the woods last Saturday. I am looking for places to take photos of the fall color. I love the woods this time of year. It is dry and there are so many flowers blooming. I found these along the brick yard trail in Lilydale park. I also found clumps of them blooming along the river bluff in Cherokee park in St. Paul. They are in shades of white and blue and the dark purple New England asters just started blooming.
