Mille Lacs Lake - Minnesota

During the heart winter of winter you will find thousands of ice fishing houses on Mille Lacs Lake in central Minnesota and on a hot summer afternoon countless numbers of boats will be crisscrossing the lake with people enjoying all kinds of water activities. This is neither winter nor summer it’s spring a time of transition and around the lake the snow is gone and the grass is starting to turn green but the ice holds on not wanting to give up. In this time of passage from one season to the next there is a calmness to the vast lake, with no people around it has a strange emptiness and lonely feeling. Without the clutter of activity the simple pattern of the melting ice and a grey sky provided me with a unique perspective of the lake not found at other times of the year.
