Photographed during the blue hour. There wasn’t much of a sunrise that day because of heavy clouds.
purple loosestrife is an invasive species that is spreading. If can be found along the river and in ditches and wetlands. it is a hearty perennial that takes over wetlands. This plant is growing by the Mississippi river in local park land.
Standing in a shallow spot near a sand bar on the Mississippi River. I often see birds hanging out as I go by on my bike.
The weather was so perfect Tuesday morning that instead of sitting down to work I started the day by taking pictures of flowers at Como conservatory. The building wasn’t open but the grounds are. I really enjoyed the quiet and of course the flowers.
A wonderful place for watching bald eagles and other wild life. located across the street from the Mississippi River in Lilydale Regional park.
The water is receding but it will be awhile before this path is again above water. Floods leave a kind of muddy sludge on everything so even after the water is gone the path isn’t really useable.
I was down by the river last night. It is unusually low in spite of all of the rain we have been getting. No danger of flooding.
