Red Bull Crashed Ice 2017

The Red Bull Crashed Ice event visited Saint Paul, Minnesota last week.  This was its sixth year in Minnesota’s state capitol. The event provided lots of opportunities for spectacular images from around St. Paul. I love making new images; from the initial shot planning through the completed image. If you enjoy these, please share them on social media and leave me a note in the comments!

Here are a few of my favorite images from the weekend:

Red Bull Crashed Ice

Opening of the 2017 Red Bull Crashed Ice event in Saint Paul, Minnesota.

Once again, the Crashed Ice event selected the Cathedral of Saint Paul as the starting point. With searchlights, spotlights, and fireworks, the Cathedral was awash in colors.

A long distance view of the Cathedral’s dome and the First National Bank building amidst the downtown buildings. The recently rebuilt ‘1st’ sign shows prominently on the skyline with its new lighting. The sign is colored blue for the winter carnival.

The Saint Paul skyline and Mississippi River viewed from Mounds Park. The searchlights from the Red Bull Crashed Ice event really add a unique sky to the image. Also, the calm water provided a nice reflection of the city lights.

Landmark Center

Finally, the Landmark Center clock tower illuminated with snowflakes. While not part of the Red Bull event, The Winter Carnival coincides with the event providing a week long celebration of winter in Minnesota!
