Rice Creek Chain of Lakes Park, Lino Lakes, MN
I decided to bring my tripod with me on a walk on a cold spring morning and used it to snap this self-portrait. The starkness of winter and early spring in Minnesota always add an interesting feel to pictures, and I desaturated the picture to emphasize the harshness (it really was quite cold).
desaturation, minimal sharpness, brightness and contrast.
