RAINY LAKE, MINNESOTA, 2007

 

David Bowman

 

“I shot this one on assignment for Minnesota Monthly. I was doing a big story on the lakes in Minnesota, which is a dream job for a landscape photographer. Rainy Lake is a border lake. On the other side of that water is Canada. It’s the northernmost part of the continental U.S.

But how do you say “most northern lake” in a photograph? Lakes are not easy to photograph. They’re subtle. How does one make one lake look different from another lake? That was the challenge in photographing this scene and showing how beautiful that lake is.

I drove around a lot before I found this little pier jutting out into the water. While I was there the fog came out of nowhere. Right after I got the shot, it disappeared again. I had to move quickly. A little wind or someone docking their boat would have changed everything. So I was in the right place at the right time, with the right equipment. The 4 x 5 is much larger and slower to work with. But it pays off because you get the highest-quality images.”
