New Autumn Image

Yes, okay - I'm a bit out of sync with the seasons here. But, as some of you probably know, I regularly post new shots taken at random times in the past and processed only recently.

This image, entitled "Autumn Meander," was captured from last fall along the very-popular Oberg Loop hiking trail near Lutsen. The loop includes several expansive views of Lake Superior and the Sawtooth Mountains.

I have captured many images from the scenic overlooks, but I also decided to make a photograph depicting a very small portion of the journey after seeing the potential of this particular spot. By this time, after having already spent a couple of hours photographing the overlooks, it was mid-morning. The sun was rising higher in the sky and the forest was aglow with colors ranging from green to yellow to red. This would be my last image of the morning.

To paraphrase a often-quoted proverb: In a life filled with goals and destinations, never forget to enjoy the journey. It's often just as interesting and rewarding as the destination.
