Looking for a UHD or 4k Image of the Minneapolis,MN Skyline

I am looking for a UHD (3840x2160) or 4k (4096x2160 that I can crop) image of the Minneapolis,MN skyline that I can use as wallpaper on my computer...

I have been to a dozen websites and looked at 100's of city skyline images over the past week or two, and I can find anything you can imagine EXCEPT an image of the Minneapolis, MN skyline.

Well, I did find one, but the person wanted $499 for a 3840x2160 digital file. I would prefer to not pay that price when I can get 100s of other cities without any cost, and it's just to be put into my wallpaper folder to cycle through anyway.

I would prefer to not capture a still image from a 4k video.

Even my wife, who can find anything online, can't find anything. Anyone have any directions they can point me to complete my quest?

There are dozens on Unsplash, just crop to your desired dimensions.

There are many large Minneapolis images on Flickr, and you can adjust that search to only include CC-licensed pics if you prefer.

You're welcome to use https://www.flickr.com/photos/kaszeta/4181869755, although it's 9 years old.

I don't know if this will help, but I did a Google Images search for "minneapolis skyline creative commons" and then used the Tools option to select Larger than 12 MP and the first hit was this one. FWIW.

Thanks for the help, everyone. I didn't even think of Flickr (I am a video guy, not a photo guy, which was probably my problem).
