Walk Along The South Platte River — wk 3

Today, Angela and I made our way down to the river. Armed with binoculars we spotted a Cooper’s Hawk just after arriving at the river. We crossed the bridge to get a better look at the hawk. While looking down into the Platte River, I noticed the rust covered bridge components that I included in this image.

Walking along the river, we spotted a variety of water fowl. This included many species of ducks as well as Canada Geese. Under the Evan Street bridge, I stopped to make several images. The sun reflected off the water casting pools of light onto the bridge pillar in the center of the river.

Farther along the river, I noticed the clouds and blue sky reflecting in the river. The sun was shaded by some clouds at this point. As a result, there was no extreme contrasts that were introduced by bright sunlight.

Near the Mississippi bridge a construction project was underway. The river was partially dammed to protect the downstream work area. A floating barrier was stretched across the river at this point. I carefully composed this image to put the orange barrier on a diagonal.

Soon after we turned back to head back home.
