I had to work for pictures of last nights Crashed Ice down hill ice racing event. I was on the roof of a nearby parking ramp and security kept asking me to leave. Pictures are even more rewarding when I have to work for them. 🙂 As expected there were large crowds and many of the people I talked to had never been to crashed ice before.
crashed ice is fun to watch but if you miss it I can tell you this year will at least look kind of like last year. The event is free. Why not?
This photo is from a collection I call “most stolen”. This shot has been swiped many times and is used to market downtown St. Paul in various ways. I thought it would be fun to post it again rather than going out in the cold and taking another.
In downtown St. paul.
Doesn’t look like Minnesota in December with the green grass. We have had a little snow and a lot of rain and above freezing weather. The tree still looks nice. I used my widest wide angle lens to get the shot.
The set of windows above the train are in the building where my office is. I never get tired of watching the trains.
