My photos of the day, all taken at the Boom Site on the St. Croix River just north of Stillwater, Minnesota.
It’s been very cold the last week. One way to deal with the cold is to photograph it.
This week’s photo challenge on The Daily Post is Muse:
So what’s your muse — what subject do you turn to frequently, more inspired each time?
My first thought was of the old, lift bridge over the St. Croix River in Stillwater, Minnesota. I live only a five-minute walk from the bridge and have photographed it in all seasons and under many different conditions. Then I thought of my photo drive; a route over the back roads of Washington County in Minnesota and St. Croix County in Wisconsin that I drive regularly with all my camera gear. Above is my favorite photo from one of these drives – a lone tree in the backwaters of the St. Croix. Below are some other favorites from the drive plus some shots of the lift bridge.
