More from the archives - Winter arrives!

Winter finally hit Minnesota this weekend. Normally, the fresh snow provides many of us with a little added desire to take some pictures. Unfortunately, this snow got topped off with a layer of ice and a wind that still whipping. So it looks like I'll be waiting for the next snow fall for some fresh snow adventures.

Congrats to Mark I! He finally got his new camera. I can't wait to see and it and get see what it inspires you to do.

This week, and I do hope to get back to more regular shooting, I found this picture in the archives. It was take at Quarry Hill Nature Center, here in Rochester. A wonderful facility that provides hands on learning about nature to local school children.

This picture of a lone turtles just gets my brain in storytelling mode. And pictures that tell stories keep us coming back for more.

This picture has been modified in Photoshop. I did a little color correction and a rare cropping. This particular crop was done to fit in a 4 X 6 frame, but also ended up being my favorite crop. I'll try to get it right in the camera next time.

I like the turtle shot! What do I know, I dump everything into photoshop;)

I admire your strategy on the contest, I think longer text is a good bet, I'm just going to print the comments, cut 'em up, and throw 'em in a bowl...Good luck!
