June 2011 Set 1
I love revisiting the Islands of Peace in Fridley, MN. It is a handicap-accessible park with a little walk-over bridge that for half the year has no water under it. This year there is plenty of water, making little islands throughout the park. I saw a carp swimming by that was over two feet long. I saw two families of ducks, making a go of it in this crazy world. This fairly abstract shot is the tiny stream with shoots of something growing out of it, reflecting the trees overhead--my favorite combination for nature scenes.
