Rochester at sunset

A cool twist on the typical sunset photo takes us to downtown Rochester, Minnesota today. Using the waters of the Zumbro River in the foreground to capture a shoreline reflection frames the photo nicely with the Rochester Public Utilities plant in the background. The most striking part has to be the flood wall on the right side of the photo bathed in the orange from the sunset.
