From the ground at this angle, the wind turbines which dot the farmland of Minnesota and surrounding states look to be an almost manageable height. I love how perspective plays tricks on your mind like this.

Blood Moon Over Denver

There was a total lunar eclipse over much of North American early this morning labeled the "Blood Moon" — so named because of the color Earth's shadow casts on the full moon. Here the moon is just beginning to emerge from totality at about 2:30 AM local time. Total lunar eclipses have about eight stops less illumination than with a normal full moon.

The hills, bluffs and riverside lands of the southern Minnesota city of Mankato are lined with all types of historic homes and in the thick fog and eerie calm captured in this photo from December the city looks like something out of a horror movie.
