Nice, +Jeff Beddow. Three of anything generally works well in a photo!  ;-)  I like the kitty - pretending to be asleep, but peeking at the photographer.
Looking East at sunset.  Minnesota River, March 25, 2014.
The sunset effect on the opposite side of the bridge was pretty spectacular for a few moments on this evening.

The water level in the river is rising as the snow melt from upriver pushes down the valley.  Might have some high water this year, as we still have a month of melt and some record high level snow falls.  It depends on how slowly the melt occurs, and how much the wetlands and fields can absorb before sending it down into the river.

Increase in diabetes in the US by county, 2004-2010.  Dark red indicates more than 10% incidence of the disease.  From the Center for Disease Control website.

To me this is a staggering development...

It was a strange day in Minnesota today.  The temp was in the 50s almost 60 for the first time since last October.  Over 5 months of winter.  There were hordes of people on the lake paths, and solid ice across the water surface.  Bikers and inline skaters elbowed the knotted packs of serious walkers, and children darted among all the churning legs to chase dogs and test the ice.  The people seemed to be escapees from some sensory privation.  I couldn't bear to show them with bared skin, eyes upcast for stray morsels of sunlight.  So I took this panorama, which ended up kind of melancholy.  The brief respite from dread Winter was nice, but the real tone was empty, and somber.

Really like your composition, Jeff. The strong foreground nicely frames the river... Thanks for sharing with your #LandscapePhotography friends!
