I went out last night in the the 70 degree March weather of Texas; a welcome change from the below freezing Minnesota weather I am used to being out in. I went to visit the small town of Forreston,…

Split Rock on the Shoreline
Looking through old work I always find beautiful images. This image of the Split Rock Lighthouse (far left) and the shoreline on a cloudy May afternoon is an example of past work that I find going through my old image files.
