Where I Live
by Joe Rossi
I grew up in northern Minnesota and lived there until I began working as a photojournalist in 1976. Thirty-two years later I returned to northern Minnesota and am now working as a freelance photographer. "Where I Live" is a collection of primarily nature photos of the things I see and experience now that I live in rural northern Minnesota.
The first hard frost of the fall from the viewing platform from which all sun rises should be observed.
I've always been fascinated by dragon flies. Their wings remind me of the glass in Tiffany lamps.
State flower. State bird.
The fawn was doing some sampling of the different vegetation before it would eat. I guess it's not just kids that are fussy eaters.
This fox was checking out the suet feeders in our yard. I guess the cartoons that show foxes licking their lips at the sight of possible food are correct.
Early morning of the first hard frost of the fall. As I piloted my boat through the fog and rising mist,
it didn’t feel like I was experiencing the outdoors but a large painting in real time.
Sharp-tailed grouse males get into a brief skirmish during the rites of spring. It was like a junior high dance.
The guys tried to show-off and impress the gals who totally ignored them.
Walking through a maple ridge on a fine September day. It doesn't get any better than this.
The ultimate fishing machine.
I had just finished hauling water for the horse when the sun broke through the clouds to form a rainbow.
I started taking photos of the rainbow when wife Judy rode through the scene on her horse. Behind every photograph there is always a certain amount of luck.
I got busy and didn't get around to pulling my boat out of the lake until today (November 17th).
This was not one of my better ideas, but wasn't anything that a pair of chest waders, a heavy, flat-bladed shovel and 30 minutes of ice breaking couldn't fix.
An ice pressure ridge on Upper Red Lake at sunset. I love being out on the ice when it is really booming.
I also make sure I know the ice depth before I venture out very far.
I'm thinking of photographing the full moon until I can get a shot of a small alien riding a bike across the face of the moon. That shot would be "marketable".
