Light Pillars

Light Pillars

The magic of winter in Minnesota, this is an amazing light effect caused by ice crystals in the air at low altitude. Light reflects on the ice and causes this, it’s not a lens flare, it is clearly obvious with the naked eye.

Uptown Lagoon Still Green

Uptown Lagoon Still Green

Morning over the Lagoon. The days are numbered for the soon-to-be fleeting color green as the cold snap over the weekend is starting to take it’s toll in the trees in the area. The trees on Raspberry island on Lake of the Isles has a few trees starting to turn.  The Bridge on the right is the Uptown Greenway as it passes over the Chain of Lakes.

Icehenge Construction for the Luminary Loppet

Icehenge Construction for the Luminary Loppet

The Luminary Loppet is scheduled for this Saturday. I’m not sure if it’s going to happen with all the warm weather we’ve had this week. This photo is of the Icehenge under construction. You can see what it looked like last year here. I had a lot of fun taking this photo, shooting into the sun is not a recommended, but once in a while it works.

Powerful Moon

I noticed the moon near this powerline pole. When I changed lenses and moved to position the moon, I discovered that the line that goes in front of the moon is painted blue. It looks like some weird effect of the moon behind the line, but it isn’t; just serendipitous.

Blue Sky, Light Pole

Blue Sky, Light Pole

How many ways can you photograph a light pole and still keep it interesting? Don’t worry, this is the last shot of the light pole.

So many lines, such interesting composition. I hope nobody saw me orbiting the pole trying to find the right angle to shoot it.
