Four Seasons at Guyles Lake

Yes, we are supposed to have four seasons in Minnesota. Sometimes it doesn’t seem that way. It seems that old man Winter hogs a great share of the year..or perhaps I am just imagining that. One of my favorite places to go is Guyles Lake. Not exactly the sunbathing, boating mecca of Minnesota..but it was home to a pair of Trumpeter Swans last summer. So here is Guyles Lake through the seasons…no I did not stand exactly in the same place each time..but close enough for an old lady. One of Minnesota ‘s last wilderness lakes in our area ..they are logging off the south east shore..I was deeply saddened to see that this area is being disturbed. If it belonged to me, I would let the animals have it.


Winter at Guyles Lake in March


Spring in June

Summer in August

Fall in October ..the Larch or Tamarack are golden, they are a deciduous conifer, which means their needles turn golden and fall off for the winter.

This was a fun project for me to do.. what other totally obscure projects can I find to photograph? I have begun a rather bazaar collection of other subjects easily found in Minnesota..weed seed heads.. deer stands..I really miss the wildflowers..it is certainly a long time til May..five more months ..most all of them wintery:(

    This looks like a fun project, all four seasons. You just keep that camera handy, and take all the pictures you can whatever the season, and share on your blog and we all like it.

    You just reminded me of why I love living in Minnesota–yes, even in the winter. I love the change of seasons, and the way it parallels our live’s changing seasons, even though we only get to do it once (unless, of course, you believe in reincarnation).
