Riverside Scenery

When my wife and I went out eagle viewing last weekend, we were told that we should find a lot of the birds at a certain spot along the Mississippi at sunrise. We got up before dawn and reached the river as the sun rose. No luck, but this power plant had a dramatic look in silhouette.

TOMORROW: the Thursday Arch Series returns

Great composition with the stack of verticals on the left and the river matching the power lines on the right. Nice color, great job!

Zow, almost a natural sepia effect there. But that's essentially the natural color, right?

I like the black and gold tones. No bald eagles are seen up here, yet. THe Mississippi is a bit froze over. The other day, the main channel was breaking up in huge rectabgular sheets of ice. Stay tuned for Mississippi on ice.

It is a dramatic shot for sure, nice silhouette and coppery colors.

what a nice shot--i guess it more than makes up for the lack of birds

Very nice shot. One of my favorites. Love the sunrise effect you got there. Great job!
