Ski fence_Staats 8601We just returned from a day trip to the Minnesota Marine Art Museum in Winona, Minnesota.  Located right on the banks of the Mississippi River, the museum is a hidden treasure.  The main reason for our trip was to see a special exhibit of 70 Ansel Adams prints.  I was thrilled and amazed to see and study the creativity that Adams brought to his final prints.  His use of black and white filters and his burning and dodging brought his images to the final representation of what he was seeing and experiencing when he captured the image.  On our way back to the Twin Cities, we crossed over the River and followed the highway north along the Wisconsin side.  Just outside of Pepin, Wisconsin we passed this amazing fence.  Amidst the snowy landscape and the overcast sky that mimicked the ground cover, we stopped to marvel at this bright fence made entirely of winter skis.  The color was eye-catching and the whole idea reminded me that just like we had observed at the Ansel Adams exhibit, there is creativity all around us.
