Summer in Minnesota with dramatic arches.
Here it is, the classic view of the Minneapolis Skyline that you see on national news shows, the weather channel and more… Enjoy!
The third bride at this location, the Father Louis Hennepin Bridge was completed in 1990 and spans the Mississippi River. Louis Hennepin was the 17th-century explorer who was the first European to discover the Saint Anthony Falls a short distance downriver. The first bridge at this location opened on January 23, 1855 and is believed to have been the first permanent span across the Mississippi at any point.
Good Morning Minneapolis!
The rain continues to fall, at least the snow is gone for the most part. In this is a close-up of the Coon Rapids Dam it looks like graffiti on the dam, but it’s just rust as snow.
A tight view of the Coon Rapids Dam from downstream. The dam bridge is still closed, no crossing over from the free lot on the west side.
After setting up a shot of this mooring chain and the barges behind it, I was set upon by this pushboat and it’s crew. I had no idea they were coming, just one of those joyful coincidences of a daily photographer.
Love the weathering on the 3rd Ave Bridge over the Mississippi by the Saint Anthony Falls.
The classic views of the Stone Arch Bridge over the Mississippi. A fun place to hang out too.
