Stunning Stillwater

Calm Morning in Stillwater - Michael Huber
Photographer showcases a unique view of Stillwater.

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 2020 photo contest winner, Calm Morning in Stillwater.

Where was the photo taken? It was taken from about 60 feet above the river using my DJI Mavic 2 Pro quadcopter.

What inspired the shot? I wanted to show the historic bridge from a different vantage point. I noticed that the air was calm, and there were interesting clouds in the sky, so I packed up my gear and headed to the riverfront.

What’s your favorite thing about this photo? Besides the unique vantage point, I like how a boat is passing through and framed by the bridge.
