Photos by retired photography Professor Roger Grant. Top, Blue Bridges in Gold, La Crosse. “For a brief window around the summer solstice, the sun sets in the northwest, casting a golden glow on the iconic blue bridges,” he says. “The effect is so unusual and striking that it prompted a visit with my camera during the few minutes of opportunity.” Bottom, Bridges and Yellow Boathouse, Foggy Morning. “The Mississippi River bridges are the subject again — this time from the other side of the river during a fall morning as fog was lifting,” he says. “Fog is a beautiful atmospheric that simplifies compositions and creates a unique mood.”
