Fotoeins Friday in MSP: Minni skyline, Mississippi ice

Between 2003 and 2006, I spent three memorably enjoyable years in Minneapolis and working at the University of Minnesota (U of M). I visited the Twin Cities as one of many destinations during my year-long RTW in 2012, and I returned again briefly in 2019 to see what became of the city.

With my return onto the U of M’s East Bank, I reacquainted myself with the Washington Avenue Bridge, connecting the university campus on both sides of the Mississippi river. I forgot how good the illuminated skyline looks over the river with floating ice. The view shown here faces northwest: at left is the downtown Minneapolis skyline; at right are the Northern Pacific Rail Bridge Number 9, now used for bicycles and pedestrians, and the I-35W Saint Anthony Falls Bridge.

I made the photo above on 8 March 2019 with a Fujifilm X70 and the following settings: 1/1000-sec, f/11, ISO1000, 14mm focal length (21mm full-frame equivalent with the WCL-X70). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-gle.
