We regularly feature photo submissions from our Lens on St. Croix Valley photo contest in the pages of St. Croix Valley Magazine and online. This month, we asked Michael Huber to tell us about his 2019 submission titled “Warm Fall Day in Stillwater.”
Where was the photo taken?
The photo was taken from about 300 feet in the air on the Wisconsin side of the historic Stillwater Bridge looking towards the city.
What inspired the shot?
It was a beautiful morning and warm for October 30th. The air was calm and I thought there would be a good opportunity to see the bridge being restored with the city in the background.
What’s your favorite thing about this image?
I particularly like the morning light hitting the city with the high wispy clouds reflecting on the St Croix River.
What kind of camera do you use?
I am an FAA Certified UAV pilot and used the DJI Mavi 2 Pro quadcopter for this photograph. It is a 6-shot panorama.
