This week’s Sunday Photo Challenge by Jacksprinter is another timely subject: Water. It just so happens that I spent my weekend surrounded by water, in the heart of northern Minnesota and the start of the Boundary Waters Wilderness and Canoe Area (BWCA). This part of the country affords some of the most spectacular, untouched wilderness and bodies of water in the nation.
For this week’s challenge I had issues deciding on what body of water to focus on. Living in the “Land of 10,000 Lakes” as Minnesota is generally called, we have our fair share of gorgeous, fresh water. I decided to focus on one lake in particular, Lake Superior, the largest of the Great Lakes.
Lake Superior is massive and is the largest freshwater lake in the world by area, providing 10% of the world’s surface fresh water. It extends across three states (Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan) and follows along Ontario, Canada with a length of 350 miles from east to west and 160 miles from north to south.
Here are some of my favorite shots of this marvelous body of water.
