Day 66 – Barge in the Ohio River

10 Jun

Once again I found myself taking photos of the river from the Louisville side of the water and this time I caught something that I wouldn’t normally thing was very pretty. We see barges in the river daily and while they are always interesting to look at I have never though to myself “my that is pretty”, well at sunset it was pretty 🙂 If I have learned anything so far on this journey it is to never judge what could possible be pretty, just shoot it and make it pretty.

It is no secret that I am a tad obsessed with water and sunsets but together they are so beautiful that I can’t resist. I am posting two photos, one includes the  bridge (another obsession) and one with just the barge. I like them both for different reasons and decided to post the both of them. Enjoy.

    I like both pictures, but more for the water than for the barge or the bridge. The color you captured, as well as the texture that’s implied from the rocks beneath the surface could have made a photo all on its own.

      P.S. Just so I’m clear, the barge and bridge are beautiful. I’m just taken with the water 🙂

      I love the water too 🙂 I think that is why I liked the photos so much to start with. It looks blue, the water is NOT blue as you know LOL

    I like them both very much. The colors are fantastic! But I think I like the one with the bridge a little better. In the other one, you can see the reflection of the bridge on the water and without context it would be like “what the HECK is that??!?” 🙂

    Okay I dunno what you did or how you were able to capture that water in the way that you did but BRAVO!! Good grief that’s beautiful. So those are rocks under the surface huh?! I’m beyond impressed.

    I can’t leave without mentioning this tiny detail that captured my eye almost immediately though – all the little windows on the barge. I LOVE THEM!!
