Rowing on the River

First weekend of October, the Head of the Ohio Regatta hosted by Three Rivers Rowing Association and sponsored by UPMC.

The starting point was Washington’s Landing and the 3.2 mile race ended at the Point where the Allegheny River meets the Monongahela River and forms the Ohio River.

Grandson Michael was in the novice class. He’s in back seat in the 4 man boat. Unfortunately his 8 man boat was unable to race but we photographed his Olentangy Rowing Club teammates in their 8 man boat.

First two photos are taken near the Mazeroski Statue by PNC Park.

Vantage Point for 8 man boats was the Sixteenth Bridge above the Allegheny River.

Photographed from the vantage point of the Roberto Clemente/Sixth Street Bridge on Fireworks night, A muddy Allegheny River reflecting the night light. I used the 70-200mm L series lens.

Just three more days of the installation so get down and walk across and back to experience the creativity of communities gathering together who nit and crochet the colorful panels now stretching across the span.
