The weather has been so bizarre (but certainly lovely) this spring in Minnesota. On a recent walk with Lisa and our dog Toby, I photographed this lady bug hanging out on some newly emerged maple leaves.

I was pretty surprised that we had our first snow fall today, but it was really pretty to see the white flakes amongst the bright autumn leaves.

Minnesota’s North Shore

Thursday, September 24th, 2009

Since we were up in Lutsen, MN for a Jesse Valley Photography wedding, we booked a room for an extra day to hike along the North Shore and take some photos. The weather was amazing for the end of September, and the scenery was breathtaking. These are just a few of the images I made, but I will have them and some more for sale at the studio and in an online gallery at (click the “Fine Art” link).

Lisa and I also took photos during this trip for the next installment of our Jesse vs Lisa Shoot Outs. Look for that to be published soon.

If you ever get the chance to visit MN’s North Shore in autumn, I highly recommend it.
