On the bridge

Taken on the historic stone arch bridge in Minneapolis MN.  The Stone Arch Bridge is a former railroad bridge crossing the Mississippi River at Saint Anthony Falls in downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota.  The bridge opened in 1883.  I have a feeling it will be around for a long time.  In the background you can see downtown Minneapolis and the mill ruins.

This is the famous stone arch bridge in Minneapolis. If you look over the sides there is a magnificent view of St. Anthony falls. On a nice day the bridge if full of walkers, joggers, people on bikes, roller blades and even segways. The bridge is long and wide and has designated bike lanes. One of the best ways to photograph it is at night at river level. I have not done that yet. 🙂
