I took this picture a few years ago and found it when I was looking for photographs of the Wabasha street bridge. I have a better camera now and better software for photo processing and even a better monitor than I had back then but I would have to work hard to get a better result but I am going to try.
The wood pile of wood at the leading tip of the Island keeps growing. Raspberry Island is on the Mississippi River, next door to Harriet Island and across the river from downtown St. Paul.
I like to stop along the bike train and enjoy the view of St. Paul.
I took this shot from Harriet Island. Actually I have taken this photo in all seasons and at different times during the day and night. It works best during the blue hour.
The Mississippi River doesn’t freeze solid. It does look pretty in the winter with some snow on it.
This is one of the views from lilydale regional park on a warm sunday afternoon.
