Having living at Twin City areas for over 20 years, I have never really paid attention on one of the twins – St. Paul.
Here is brief information:
Saint Paul (abbreviated St. Paul) is the capital of the U.S. state of Minnesota. It is the county seat of Ramsey County, the state’s smallest and most densely populated county. As of 2019, its estimated population was 308,096, making it the 63rd-largest city in the United States and the 11th-most populous in the Midwest. Most of the city lies east of the Mississippi River at the confluence with the Minnesota River. The city, together with Minneapolis, are known as the “Twin Cities”. They are the core of Minneapolis–Saint Paul metropolitan area, home to over 3.6 million and the third-largest in the Midwest.
The past Thanksgiving long weekend gave me a chance to take a close look at St. Paul, and enjoy its unique beauty, especially at sunset and night.
I captured the sunlight across the gaps between skyscrapers at downtown St. Paul.
and the car tracks on the highways across downtown during blue hour.
Then I captured the light reflections on Mississippi River from downtown St. Paul at night.
For the very first time I saw the state capitol building glowing at night.
The night photo tour around St. Paul ended on 6 pm with a new learning and experience.
