Blue hour - Minneapolis skyline

Dusk / Blue Hour - Downtown Minneapolis Skyline
from flickr user m01229
Friday, when this photo was taken, was the first in a string of rather unusual 80-plus degree days. That would be spectacular weather for June but this is the end of September -- in Minnesota. We know it never lasts this time of year but the scenery, as shown in this photo of the Minneapolis skyline during the striking blue hour, is spectacular. Even with cooler weather upon us, get out and enjoy the sights because the temperatures only continue to get cooler for the next few months.

Fall color in Minnesota

|

Fall color is beginning to already peak in some corners of Minnesota while others remain as lush as green grass in May.

Intense Color
from flickr user Darcy
Taken in Myre-Big Island State Park near the southern Minnesota city of Albert Lea, MN, the fall color in this particular corner of the park is incredibly vibrant. What looks to me mostly Maple trees, the yellows and a few oranges are particularly plentiful.

Minnesota Northshore Fall

Orange and red leaves - again courtesy of Maple trees - are lighting up selected areas of the north shore of Lake Superior near Grand Marais. The color is less blanketed due to the area's plentiful pine trees but still spectacular. Hurry to get "up north" as much of the area is at peak color or rapidly approaching that and a couple days of strong winds or rain could bring all of those vibrant leaves to the ground in quick order.
