It’s Water Under the Bridge

It’s water under the bridge (s), the water being the Monongahela River. I lost count of the number of bridges we sailed under.

Sunday night.

Rivers of Steel Photo Cruise on the Mon. During the 2 1/2 hour Riverboat Cruise we had rain, clouds, thunder, lightning )where we had to go inside the boat) and then a sliver of sun briefly, ending on clear skies.

Pittsburgh Rivers Rise Due to Heavy Rainfall

It had been raining steadily the last couple of days.  I mean HEAVY rain.  Here is the result of the downpour and all the melted ice and snow.Allegheny River where the road should be,no visible walkway by PNC Park . West End Bridge

The Point is covered with water

Homestead Grays Bridge Reflection

Along the Monongahela River.

The thin white tree branch over the dark trunk seemed to connect the bridge reflection in the river. Tie it together.

I photographed this image earlier in the week.

But-we’re not talking about the weather or what it’s doing outside my window right now.

It’s winter for certain.

Something there is that does love a bridge

Something there is that does love a bridge

The Pittsburgh Bridges galleries from the past two days have evoked a tremendous response from blog viewers. The views today add more weather and some are taken from the river while on the Ducky Tour or the wedding below.

Cheri Lucas Rowlands at WordPress really unleashed so many of the BRIDGE photos I’ve taken.   And finding so many images with bridges makes me realize I have taken bridges for granted.

And my friend V is right about the photos- people respond to the the bridge structures, NOT the sunsets taken from a bridge.
