“This was taken shortly after sunrise with the colors still dominating in the sky. I was also fortunate that birds were standing on the lights, which adds to the photo,” Rod Smoliak says about his image taken at the top level of the parking ramp next to the Maple Grove Library. “I love the lines in this photo. I lined the photo up to keep the fence horizontal and then lights provide an interesting angle.”
