Raspberry Island survived the winter. I went to check on it yesterday and to watch the chunks of ice float down the river.
The Mississippi river at River Falls Minnesota. The Mississippi has so many different looks. Â In some places it looks like a lake and in other places a small stream. Sometimes it is smooth and sometimes rough. It can be clear or muddy and in the Twin Cities it can have shoes, tires or lawn furniture in it.
This was taken in Little Falls Minnesota at the hydro electric plant. I love the roar of the falls and the smooth water above them. The Mississippi River is amazing in it’s diversity.
I saw some of these in the wild earlier this week in Northern Minnesota but it is far easier to get a photo of a lily pad at Como park conservatory.
The red “1” blinks on and off. Â It is wrong to take a picture at night with the light off. I have taken a few but I would never post them.
When I wanted to learn how to take photos at night I went down to Harriet Island and tool pictures of downtown. I like to take this shot once a year. It is better when all the lights are on downtown but I can only do that in the winter when the river isn’t nearly as pretty. I have to have the red one in the picture and it blinks on and off so I have to wait for it. 🙂 Have a happy Saint Patricks day.
