Local photographer Bob Roth took a stroll through Fort Snelling National Cemetery yesterday and snapped some great photographs of the headstones peaking out of the white blanket of snow.
The sunny day and clear blue sky provided plenty of natural light for Bob to showcase many of the memorials to the great heroes who died for our country.
Last week, one of our submitting photographers, Bob Roth, was partaking in one of his favorite activities: walking around in nature's beauty with his camera. This time around, Bob was at Fort Snelling National Cemetery where he caught some wild turkeys braving the cold.
He got a little closer for this shot.

I graduated from the University of Minnesota last spring -- in the fall, I took a photography class. For an assignment, I was tasked with photographing beauty in nature. Mission accomplished.
