A WINTER LANDSCAPE IN RURAL Minnesota can, at first glance, seem visually unappealing. White upon white upon white.
But then a moment happens. A curtain opens in the mind to reveal a scene that holds spectacular beauty.
Stubble pokes through snowy fields. A farm site stands isolated, yet strong, in all that winter vastness. And then, a layer of golden light slips between land and clouds.
The light. The textures. The immensity of the scene. All collide before my eyes, to create a winter photo poem. Beautiful in its complexity. Beautiful in its simplicity. Winter.
I photographed this scene along Interstate 35 somewhere north of Faribault around sunset Saturday.
