What I Did On My Photographic Vacation
For the first time in years
I decided to plan a photographic vacation this year, but not to one of
those crowded popular tourist attractions you see advertised in all the
magazines. I took my cameras to Ely, Minnesota. Never heard of it? News
commentator, Charles Kuralt, called Ely "The End of the Road."
I, personally, found it to be the beginning of a great photographic adventure.
Little did I know when I started out what an adventure it would be. All
I knew was that my good friend, Karl Larson, suggested that I organize
some photographers to vacation in his favorite part of the country and
enjoy the photographic opportunities available in the Boundary Waters
Canoe Area (BWCA) of upper Minnesota--just a few miles south of the
Don't Let The Weather
Well, I did make it across
to the cabin, thank goodness, but not without a few waves coming over
the bow of Karl's 16 ft boat. Thank goodness we weren't in
canoes. I never did find out how those in the previous photograph made
out that day. Soon after we unpacked the boat Karl went back for another
trip. While he was gone I was really impressed with the brewing storm
and photographed the lake from the front deck of my vacation home.
