Clouds Over the Niagara River



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it. Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

When Betsy and I visited my daughter and her husband in Buffalo last month, Kelly took us to Squaw Island, a park in the Niagara River near Black Rock, New York. While walking along the river I captured this picture of the clouds above a railroad trestle connecting Canada and the U. S.

The white is so bright it looks like it's shining a light on the river.

Love the water/clouds/sky. They compliment each other in a beautiful way - - - almost like God planned it!

Very beautiful scene and safe weather for travel.

Ben said...

That is a nice looking cloud formation, made more interesting by the river and the trestle (sounds too much like "Tressel" for us Ohioans) underneath!

Stephany said...

Great composition! I like the lighting on the clouds and water.
