minneapolis church

Snow falling on the beautifully lit Hennepin Avenue United Methodist Church in downtown Minneapolis Minnesota.

 

More than you probably want to know:

Hennepin Avenue United Methodist Church is a historic place of worship located across the street from the Walker Art Center and Lowery Hill neighborhood in downtown Minneapolis, MN. It was built in the English Gothic style and modeled after Ely Cathedral in the UK. Completed in 1916, the awesome spire stands 238 feet (72 meters) tall and was at the time the second tallest building in Minneapolis - definitely my favorite steeple in town.

 

At the time of this posting, the 2010-11 winter has been Minnesota’s 7th ‘Most Snowiest’ since they started keeping records back in 1871 and it’s still not over yet. That record is also one of the reasons I have not been out taking many pictures lately :)
