"Freezing Namekagon" by Chris, 15 | St. Croix National Scenic Riverway
About Chris: "Hey, my name is Chris and I'm from Madison WI. The way I see it is, life is a roller coaster. It starts pulling out of the station and going up and up and up...until it drops and my life so far has been that huge scary drop. But, between you and I, my coming to Passage is right after that first dip. Now I'm going up, and all I see in my future is going up and up. The way I see photography is almost as a therapeutic retreat. Taking a breathtaking picture is something that puts hope into my life and makes me feel very excited, and also like I'm possessing a secret skill. I feel like there is no better way to express such a great artistic passion in my life but doing just this."
