Minnesota rivers can fill quickly after a rain and
when they do the water runs rapidly to the lakes
and larger rivers. This is no more easily observed
then along the shore of Lake Superior. The drop
in elevation produces many spectacular rivers that
are a showcase of waterfalls and cascades. Slowing
the speed of the camera shutter tames this water
giving it a smooth, graceful and silky appearance.
These images were made over the course on one
weekend in October 2010 after such a storm.
