As the snow and seemingly winter along with it starts to disappear here in St. Paul, today’s photo is a reminder that winter does have some redeeming value.
I stumbled on this photo yesterday while sorting files for my web site and store. The photo was shot in 2010 down the road from St. Antony Main, I was working on capturing the sun set behind the sky line when I noticed the sliver of light that crossed the river. You can trace the light beam to the space between two buildings on the skyline. The sunset itself was pretty spectacular as it bathed the skyline.
This past week on our way back from Sioux Falls we witnessed a similar display of golden light while on 1-35. Unfortunately by the time we got to an off ramp the golden light was pretty much gone.
