Thanksgiving Rush Out of Minneapolis

Thanksgiving Rush Out of Minneapolis

The shining emerald city of Minneapolis offers it’s best view from 35W, in fact, if you are a fan of the movie Fargo, you will see this angle as the guys drive in from Brainerd. Actually, if they were coming from Brainerd, they would be coming the other direction, but the view of downtown from the North isn’t nearly as spectacular. Unless you were there on the first of August.

Long exposures is one of the many benefits of night photography. To learn how to take photos like this and many more photography tips, please stay tuned to my daily photo blog, where I publish a photo from Minneapolis every day.

    It’s a long exposure, ISO100, f/16, 15 seconds. Then I worked the image in post to get the colors right.

    Happy Thanksgiving (belated). WI enjoy night photographywith all the bright lights contrasting the darkness. Always good to learn how these shots are done. Oh, and I was inspired by your toy train pic, I gave it a shot on a few of mine. Thanks!

    Both shots are fantastic, but I’d have to choose this one for sure. The streaking exposure of the cars is amazing, and relative to the latter photo, I feel that this one is more crisp (even though I do enjoy the little landscape and snow on the second one quite a bit).

    I’m sure if my mood changed, I’d probably feel different. They’re both amazing, really.

    That leads me to question, relative to streetwise/location, where exactly on 35 did you manage to get a shot like this or your other? I’d love to see this for myself if possible.

    There’s a pedestrian bridge at 24th. If you look closely, you will find a hole in the chain-link fence at this location. Thankfully the city workers haven’t closed it up.
