Each spring, I take a day and head over to the MN North Shore to unwind and knock the dust off of my camera. Yesterday morning I made my way to Split Rock Lighthouse. There was no ice on the lake itself, but there was plenty where the lake had receded and left puddles along the rocky shore. I took advantage of one area along the shore to be the foreground in the image below.
