WINTER IN MINNESOTA this time of year and in November often seems stripped of color, a drab world of black-and-white mimicking the melancholy mood of those who wish only for spring.
So it takes some effort to appreciate this month of March which can’t quite decide whether to pursue spring or linger awhile yet in winter.
One day she’s dark and brooding, the next bright and cheery. Understanding her mood swings can be a challenge.
Sometimes you just have to accept who she is and realize that even in her colorless world, a certain sense of beauty prevails.
All of these images were taken last Saturday morning from a moving vehicle while traveling through southern Minnesota. Each has been edited to create a more artsy, earthy feel.
