Minnesota in October

Cindy Carlsson of St. Paul too me up on my request for your photographs of Minnesota colors this weekend.

She writes:


It always amazes me how hard it really is to capture the gorgeous colors of fall, but here is a shot from the southern end of Wild River yesterday (Saturday). I’m still sorting through them to post on my own blog (hopefully sometime tonight), but thought I’d give you one for your collection too.

Coal Dorius says “the river in fall is one of my favorite places.”\

Few photographers can capture St. Paul the way Teresa Boardman can.

    I may be a day late and a dollar short but this little post reminds me that in all of the stuff we think that is important (and some of it IS) time continues to march on, nature continues to work her (his?) magic, and that there is absolutely nothing we can do about it, other than to go along for the ride. So enjoy!

    Thanks, I needed that!

    This fall I am trying to take the time to appreciate the beauty rather than get stressed out about the economy that is beyond my control.

    Thank you for sharing such gorgeous photos!
