Anoka from Above

I recently heard about a good spot to see the city of Anoka from. On the seventh floor of the Anoka County Courthouse, there are several windows that provide an expansive view of the town and the surrounding land. From this height, it looks like Anoka is surrounded by a huge forest, only occasionally broken by other buildings.

I was able to clean up this wider photo in Lightroom afterwards, but there is still some flare visible on the left. Trying to take photos at too much of an angle got even more distorted…a tricky aspect of taking photos through windows. This shows quite a bit of downtown Anoka though.

  1. These are very interesting shots of Anoka. Being up that high gives a different perspective of the city, and gives the appearance of a surrounding forest. Excellent photography

  2. Thanks! I have been wishing there was a way to get up in the Courthouse building for awhile since it is one of the tallest buildings around, and I happened to see that there is a spot open to the public online.
