About this photo: I have spent my life always living very close to a lake. Growing up in Minnesota, it is pretty easy to be near water as this wonderful state has over 13,000 bodies of water. I took this picture during my daily run around Lake Harriet which is only five blocks away from my home in Southwest Minneapolis. I run year round and I love to see the changes along the lake front that ebb and flow throughout the seasons. Spring time is magical as the light has a different kind of power which casts a spell over the azure blue waters of the lake. I took this photo and formatted it in a vintage look to illustrate how lakes have been a part of my life for many years.
