This was shot from the Gonda Building at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. This is the Plummer Building, the oldest Mayo building and it's an architectural masterpiece. I've shot it countless times over the past few years but it was even more appealing this year due to the brutally cold temps and smoke (or steam) from coming from a nearby building. The building looked almost magical in the sunlight with the steam swirling around it as flocks of pigeons congregated on the ledges only to burst into flight when something startled them.
