The classic views of the Stone Arch Bridge over the Mississippi. A fun place to hang out too.
Twilight wains as the lights of the Hennepin Avenue Bridge sparkle to life.
It’s actually called the St. Anthony Falls Bridge, named for the falls just upriver from the bridge. The bridge is normally lit blue at night, but on this anniversary of 9/11, it was lit red, whit & blue. Kudos to Cheyenne for holding still for a 3 second exposure on a windy night.
Lost it the wind, the herd or electric reindeer search for a place to spend the night and dream of electric sheep.
Snow and pools of light fall upon the quiet street.
Two Minneapolis Lightrail Trains pass in the snowstorm near the new Target Field.
Schnapsi and I went out in the snowmageddon last night to take photos during the storm. We went downtown and had quite the adventure! The snow was falling so fast and with the strong winds, it was a new experience in photojournalism, several times my camera bag got a drift in it and once my hood had blown back and by the time I put it back up it too had filled with snow, Yikes!
I had planned a few locations ahead, but it turned out that the visibility was so bad that none of them worked. Schnapsi wanted to go to the lightrail station and I’m glad we did!
A dark and hazy night in the big city.
The Loppet this year was the busiest I’ve ever seen. The luminary sculptures are fascinating points of interest for the wandering crowds. For one night a year, the rather quiet lake is the busiest tourist attraction in town. I love that you can see all the people on their phones either taking pix or tweeting or something. This was shot by the PoleCam!
