on the road: minneapolis to michigan from dawn to dusk

After leaving Minneapolis and heading north towards the lakes region, the first things I did were get into road trip mode by cranking up my radio, and discover that my cruise control was broken 3 miles into a 2,100 mile drive. So view these photos with Creedence Clearwater, Dierks Bentley and lots of intermittent speeding and braking in mind.

I mostly took country roads towards Brainerd. It was a lot of what I remembered about the Midwestern plains… long straight roads, flat horizons dotted with lush trees and faded barns, and a big beautiful sky that went on forever towards the encroaching boreal forest. Here is the lakes region to Duluth, through Wisconsin and into Michigan from dawn to dusk.


  1. Beautiful images! What kind of camera do you use?

    1. Thank you! I shoot with a Canon 5D and a 24-70mm ii.

  2. your photos are very symmetric! I love it! <3

  3. This reaffirms the fact that I need to pack a kayak and tour the midwest!
