The picturesque Boom Island Lighthouse on the banks of the Mississippi River in Minneapolis – seen here as nightfall takes over the Mill City. The ice on the river serves an a nice accent in this photo as it captures bits and pieces of reflections of the adjacent skyscrapers and office towers.

The graceful curves of the bridge's arch and the trail beneath it coupled with the straight lines of the bridge's stone and concrete make for a very geometrically pleasing photo – especially in black and white. Do yourself a favor as the weather warms up this week and get out on the many trails the state of Minnesota has to offer and, time permitting, check out this picturesque bridge and trail combo near Lake Calhoun in Minneapolis.
