Location: Lake Minnetonka, Minnesota
The temperatures have been below freezing the past few days in Minnesota but right before they dropped I was able to sneak outside to capture this gorgeous sunset. I managed to stay outside for almost an hour and only had to pop indoors twice to warm up my hands (I’m a wimp, I know). For this view, the numb fingers were well worth it.
I’m lucky enough to live only a few blocks from Lake Minnetonka and so popped down lakeside as the sun was going down. There is something about a really cold day in Minnesota ending in a burst of vibrant color. The bright oranges, reds, and pinks contrast so drastically against the frozen whiteness. Despite the cold, it was wonderful to be outside enjoying the stillness and serenity of this moment. I was the only one watching the sunset near the lake and it was a wonderful reminder that even in the winter, nature is a beautiful thing to be a part of.
