Default Cold Day, Low Light, Big Bridge

Snapped the nearly finished bridge over the St Croix at sunset tonight. The long shadows magnified the sweeping structure. Great day to skip out early and fly!



I know the date is wrong - I just reset it........

great pic!

Do you do anything special to eliminate reflection?

I always seem to get a faint reflection of the interior in my shots.

Default Reflections

You can go all out with black blanket in the cockpit, but I usually just take 10 pics and one comes out pretty good! It can be a challenge on a really sunny day. I delete way more pics than I keep.........

Where is this new bridge? I learned to fly at Lake Elmo and have lots of hours flying up and down the St Croix.

Boy, Minnesota kids have it so easy these days. They'll be able to drive straight into Wisconsin on 36, instead of how we used to do it - drive down the hill into downtown Stillwater and cross the bridge. If it was down. And we did it in the snow...uphill....both ways.....
