I went for a long ride today and while I was taking the dog for a walk in Red Wing, MN, I saw a riverboat come around a bend toward me. It was the American Queen. According to the Internet, it is the largest steamboat ever built. Here are some of the best shots that I got of it. As it approached, they lowered the smokestacks.

If you look REAL close at these photos - and then get a bit closer - you'll see the DSCOVR on top of a SpaceX rocket taking off from Cape Canaveral.  These shots were taken tonight from The Villages, over a 100 miles from the Cape. #SpaceX   #dscovr

No, I was on a tour and there was no room to bring a tripod.

Story
Tagline
I'm a retired IT Specialist, amateur photographer and pure geek.
Introduction
I am a retired IT specialist living in a suburb of St. Paul, Minnesota, USA.  I enjoy traveling and photography (Nikon D7000).  Most of my photography has been of landscapes, but I also enjoy street photography and shooting anything that appears unusual.

I also enjoy anything related to technology.  This applies to computers, networks, smart phones (Android), etc.  I am a Google enthusiast and use most of their applications and tools.
Bragging rights
I have five beautiful grandchildren that I never get tired of playing with!
