I’m doing ‘photo a day’ weekly instead of daily. Here’s the challenge for the week of July 8 – 14.
8– River 9– Ice tea 10-Cherries 11– Park 12– Start with “D” (dock) 13– Flowers in Pots
14– Picnic (my version). 🙂
That would be the Hudson River in New York state. These pictures were taken in Poughkeepsie while enjoying the Walkway Over the Hudson experience.
According to the Department of Environmental Conservation:
‘The Hudson estuary stretches 153 miles from Troy to New York Harbor, nearly half the river’s 315 mile course between Lake Tear of the Clouds in the Adirondacks and the Battery at the tip of Manhattan. The estuary feels the ocean’s tidal pulse all the way to Troy. Push a stick into the beach at the water’s edge, or note the water’s height on a piling or rock. Check back in 20 minutes. Is the water level the same? The estuary usually has two high and two low tides in twenty-four hours. With this rise and fall come changes in the direction of flow. In general, a rising tide is accompanied by a flood current flowing north towards Troy, a falling tide by an ebb current flowing seaward.’ You can read entire article by CLICKING HERE https://www.dec.ny.gov/lands/4923.html
I couldn’t choose just one, so….
Mid Hudson Bridge – George Washington Bridge
New Hampshire covered bridge – bridge of a ship – tourists on a bridge 🙂
Frenchtown Bridge (NJ) – Dingman’s Ferry (PA) bridge – foot bridge
New England bridge – Mid Hudson bridge.
The prompt: You can find similar reflections and changes in perspective just about anywhere. From water and glass to metallic surfaces, share a photo that captures something reflected back to you in a way that made you look at your surroundings differently.
From a log in a river, to the Chrysler Building in NYC, to a restaurant in NJ, to a mirror reflecting a mirror reflecting a window, to docks on Martha’s Vineyard… these are my selections for ‘reflecting.’
(the above photo is from Google, all others are mine)
The walkway is in Poughkeepsie, New York… it was a former railroad bridge built in 1889, the bridge deck stands 212 feet above the river’s surface and is 1.28 miles long, making it the longest, elevated pedestrian bridge in the world. The day we were there was sunny, cloudy, breezy, windy and as you can see still lots of beautiful foliage. Here we go…
down river towards NYC which is approximately 85 miles away…
barge coming up river…
This was so much fun and if it were closer than almost 2 hours from where I live I’d walk it more often.
