Here’s a quick photographic inspirational tip – turn around. Sometimes the better image is behind you! I’m pretty sure that I’m the only person that has this picture – because it’s at your back when you are at a really spectacular scenic vista near Lanesboro, MN. When I realized there wasn’t a shot that I liked from the overlook, I turned around to head back to the car. When I did, I saw the light beaming through the trees and reflecting off the ground – and I liked that shot a lot more.
It was an incredibly strange weekend – it was an early spring camping trip to Mystery Cave State Park in southern MN. We didn’t have reservations because we made them for a month later – which happened to be Memorial Day. It was freezing all weekend – we went into the cave to warm up. It was actually snowing really hard a couple of hours before this shot was taken.
Anyway – though this shot isn’t photographically perfect, it’s a good lesson to TURN AROUND!
