Whole City On Fire

I was reading the comments left by Fenix of Boston Daily Photo and had to laugh. He said yesterdays photo looks like the whole city was on fire. Throw in the smoke, I understand exactly what he is talking about. Today's photo is no different. It's from the same location as yesterdays and was actually my intended bridge that I was going to post a photo of. My intent was to take a photo of the Wabasha Street Bridge, from the High Bridge looking over the Mississippi River and getting a great reflection from the bridge lights. Well, the river was partly frozen and I thought I was dressed warm enough, but I was not and had to leave the High Bridge sooner than I wanted to because of the winds blowing across the bridge.

As I left the High Bridge, I took a quick photo of the bridge I left and that became my daily photo selection. I took this photo of the Wabasha Bridge from the bluff, but didn't use it as a bridge photo because will all of the scenery, I thought the bridge became lost in all of the city lights.

Too much information?

Great shot! A real gem. And you risked freezing your hands. I was out the other evening...shopping, and getting some daily pics. Darn near froze my hands. Today was much warmer, though.

Wow!

I guess your city might be the brightest city on earth! :-)


Looking at yesterday's photo, it does looks like it is on fire. I can even smell the smoke! LOL...
