"Forest on Fire" Little Crab Lake, BWCA. Photo taken Sept. 27, 2019 at 6:43 p.m., Sony SLT-A57, f/7.1, 1/125", 20mm, ISO 100
We were, perhaps, the last human beings to witness the sun setting on Little Crab Lake as it presently is. The lake is scheduled for a burn this fall, including the far shore pictured here. We were making base camp, and were lucky enough to catch this spectacular sunset followed by a lone-wolf howling later that night.
Not grand in scale, but I took this on Cherokee Lake during a sunset. There is so much to soak in in the BWCA so it's easy to want to capture wide angle shots to get everything. This angled pine line and calm water really caught my eye.
