Swimmers, Lake Superior, Minnesota Photo: Nick Otto
I love all the empty space around the swimming platform. It shows how the lake is both huge and peaceful. The figures of the people become very small, and what makes the shot is the person jumping from the platform and appearing especially tiny surrounded by all that water.
It was a short hike, but very steep, and with a 30lb kid on my back, it nearly killed me. But we had a great time at Frontenac State Park, beautiful views of Lake Pepin, one of my favorite areas in Minnesota.
