Warm Reflection
Boulder Lake
North of Duluth, Minnesota

Gentle warmth of the afterglow of the sunrise at Boulder Lake. A few minutes drive north of my house is a world that is my own mental image of Northern Minnesota ... what I imagine it to be like when I close my eyes .. a world of thick woods, filled with wildlife, and dotted by thousands of lake ..

This particular place on the shoreline has become one of my favorites .. Unfortunately this spot on the shoreline is on a bend of a narrow back road .. someday I am going to get taken out by a joy riding teenager while shooting here.

Boulder Lake is a partially man made lake. In 1919 a dam on Otter Creek merged three existing smaller lakes into Boulder Lake. The lake contains 27 miles of shoreline 98% of which is undeveloped. The area is protected by the Boulder Land Management Area (BLMA) and contains a great variety of wildlife including moose, wolves, eagles, and osprey. The shoreline also hosts the Boulder Lake Environmental Learning Center which hosts a large number of programs throughout the year.
