93 Days of Spring by Jim Brandenburg (93) More files...
Beginning on the vernal equinox and ending on the day before summer solstice Jim Brandenburg captured one photograph a day to document springtime in Minnesota - we have arranged the photos chronologically in this gallery. All images were made in the state's four ecological zones: tallgrass aspen parkland, prairie grassland, deciduous forest and coniferous forest. Wildlife and quiet landscapes spanning the season are portrayed in Jim's signature minimalist style.
