InSPIREd Sunday - Wooddale Church

On previous trips to the airport in Minneapolis, I could see a tall spire lit up off to my left as I drove east along I-494 near Eden Prairie. Since I was headed for the airport to fly home, I didn't want to risk any detours to seek it out. However, on my last trip home for the holidays, I had an early morning flight and was staying at a hotel near the airport. This meant I would have time to go find this spire. In all honesty, I thought it would turn out to be a LDS temple but instead it was on an interdenominational church. As I pulled into their parking lot, I could see the spire was of an open grid work construction. It was really impressive. I wish I would have had my other camera but only had my point-and-shoot. I think it did an okay job of capturing this at night. It was bitter cold and the wind was blowing hard so I didn't want to stand outside of my warm car for too long. The photo is straight out of the camera with some minor cropping to remove a few unwanted elements.
