Ride The Lightning

 

Is it just me, or does it look like a horse is running out of the lightning? I took well over one hundred shots with my Samsung Galaxy S20+ to get one semi decent lightning capture. Didn't have a tripod with me, so I was standing on my lawn snapping away. About three minutes of photo taking, a lower bank of clouds rolled in and the lightning show was over. At least I got one shot!

Just Outside My Window


We stayed two nights at a hotel on 7th Street in downtown St Paul last winter because we were attending a Minnesota Wild hockey game. That's not something we normally do since we live only 22 minutes away from the stadium. What a fun experience and highly recommended if you've never done that before. When we were in our hotel room, we were treated with this amazing view of the State Capital building.

Hasting Bridge At Sunset


The Hastings Bridge does have a lot of great locations to capture it well. Throwing in a blooming sunset just adds to it.

Muddy Waters


Last Friday's photo, I was on the Wisconsin side, looking at the Minnesota side of things. Well, today I am once again in Wisconsin and capturing the banks of Minnesota. Today I am in Prescott, WI at Muddy Waters Bar & Grill. It is one of my favorite summertime places to eat outdoors. You do get greeted by a loud train crossing the BNSF Railroad lift bridge that crosses the Saint Croix. Just adds to the uniqueness

Gone Fishing


Hope everyone gets out of town for the extended Labor Day Weekend that is upon us. While I was in Wisconsin when I took this sunset photo, the land on the other side of the St Croix River is Minnesota.
