Glacial lake

Post by uuglypher »

A common topographic feature of my region of eastern South Dakota and western Minnesota are legacies of the last glacial retreat about ten to eleven millennia ago. Glacial lakes have no inflowing or draining streams; their water level thus is dependent upon the water table - and thus by rainfall. Such “prairie potholes” and associated wetlands support many breeding waterfowl and also serve as stop-off points during the southward and northward migrations.
Their peaceful quiet complements that of the greater northern plains of which they are crucial environmental components.
I do love this part of the world as much or more than anywhere I have ever lived... and am happily “here for the duration”.

Very nice image with great sky and a serene feel to it. Glacial lakes make wonderful reflecting pools because they are so still. Lovely country set into a nice composition.
