Lake of the Isles Infrared Sunrise

Lake of the Isles Infrared Sunrise

This week of the 100 Post Challenge, I will be sharing one of my favorite alternative views of reality, Infrared. This was taken from the dock, just down hill and to the west of Saturday’s photo. Infrared is the light just beyond our vision of the red scale. Many animals can see it, including birds. Trees reflect it and the sky, being blue, shows up as black. It’s a beautiful, other-worldly look to me.
Yes, it’s a special camera.

West High School Fallen Trees

West High School Fallen Trees

Kenwood Isles residence is on the site of the old West High School at the corner of Hennepin and 28th. I’ve always admired the stately old trees at the corner surrounding the sign on the corner that I don’t think many people notice. Saturday morning while I was out exploring the damage from the storm, I found this sight, sorry to see them go.

NOT Black and White

NOT Black and White

This is not a Black & White image, I did not desaturate it, in fact, I added saturation. See the signs on the left? The overcast sky, the wet tree trunks and the really white snow conspire to create a colorless world…

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.
