February 2017

Abandoned under a southwest Minnesota sunset
February was a month of spectacular sunsets.  Thankfully I was able to be out on the road to catch a few.  Unusually warm temperatures brought the snow geese to the area earlier than normal then a cold spell chased them back south again.  Like they say, if you don't like the weather in this part of the country, be patient, as it will change.  Click on an image for a larger file to view and thanks for checking in!
