Columbus, Ohio is a beautiful city

As Steve and I continue to explore Columbus in the early morning hours, I've come to realize that it is a very interesting city with many beautiful spots that are quite photogenic.  Here's another skyline - this one was from yesterday morning. I have a feeling I will be exploring different angles of the city skyline, especially as the Scioto Mile park continues to progress. The riverfront area is going to be absolutely stunning when all the construction is done. The restoration projects on the Scioto River and the Olentangy River makes a huge difference in how much I love the river areas of the city. Simply by removing the weirs, the rivers are coming back to life with natural beauty, more birds, beavers, muskrats, and fish. It's great to see.

Columbus is festive now....

The weekend here was rainy and cold, which means that, of course, Steve and I had to be downtown for a photo walk. Steve has a project in mind that requires bad weather, so I'm along for the company. However, I find this kind of setting to be interesting, too, and so I took the opportunity to make a photo I've been visualizing for a long time. I wanted a skyline of Columbus when the colors are rich from the saturated air. Right now there are lots of holiday lights on display, so it was a good setting for the photo I wanted to make.  I will likely be getting this made into a nice print for hanging on my wall - I can see this printed on metallic paper, or, possibly on aluminum.

The only drawback to doing photography in bad weather is the possibility of raindrops on the lens. I had tried to make this photo before sunrise, but ended up with spots. We returned after sunset, and I was able to make the photo the way I had envisioned the scene.
