Glassy water blends seamlessly with the sky above making this photo appear like a giant canvas of water alongside the tree-lined banks of the St. Croix River.

Last weekend, Minneapolis was full of zombies. The annual Zombie Pub Crawl filled the streets of downtown Minneapolis with costumed, bloody, slow-moving throngs of the undead as they guzzled their choice of beverage. This particular nurse chose to accentuate her cleavage with gashes left by a zombie but her face has yet to fall apart like the zombies we're accustomed to seeing on AMC's The Walking Dead.

Located 500 feet above the crystal blue waters of the Mississippi River, Charity Bluff (near Winona, MN) is still ripe with color for late October. The cars traveling on U.S. Highway 61 look like speedy ants from this high vantage point.

Riding the rails - Owatonna, MN

Matched set Sunday
from flickr user steve55126
As I sat alongside a Steele County road just south of Owatonna Sunday afternoon while we dealt with a crabby toddler, I glanced across U.S. Highway 218 and noticed another vehicle parked near the railroad tracks. Soon enough he stepped out of his car with camera in hand and focused on the Canadian Pacific train, pulling a mix of grain cars and boxcars, chugging down the tracks headed south towards Austin and points beyond. This was the very train, shown above, I saw being photographed and I like to think that as I sat in my red SUV that this photographer in the blue VW noticed me too. Throw in the fact that I found this photo today and that is what us in the business call fate.

We are lucky this year with what seems like an extended autumn and the color surrounding Minnehaha Falls in Minneapolis is still striking. Take a break from the office when possible this week and soak up the final colorful and warm autumn days before we face bleak, leafless days for months to come.
