A showstopping view highlights summer’s natural beauty.
“I snapped this photo behind the Wayzata Library, and whoever planted these zinnias— they are showstoppers,” Maria Slusser says. “I stumbled into them while walking my dog, and it was so pretty, I went back and grabbed my camera. The colors of the zinnias are extraordinary, but, while shooting, I realized that these flowers have the best view in town. In the backdrop are the white sails of the boats cruising on a spectacular summer day.”
