From the Bridge

From the park (previous post) I headed over to the bridge. These boathouses and their reflections are almost always of some interest.

From the other side of the bridge, I took one more shot of the Boulton Brown Mill, which seems to demand a shot every time. This time, I caught an ice floe going by, which made it a bit different.

I walked across the bridge (from where I had parked and begun) to the northwest side where I took this photo of the birdge, townhall and the former Paterson and Sons Funeral Home and Furniture Store.

I also turned around a took this shot looking back upriver. I was quite surprised to see all of those leaves clinging onto the young oak tree.

Upon heading back to the car, I chanced to notice the moon over townhall. I tried to get the moon centered over the flag pole. I didn't quite manage in camera, so I moved it and enlarged it a bit in post. What I did right in camera was to underexpose the shot to keep detail in the moon. I also envisaged it as a black and white shot from the getgo, and I think it worked out pretty well.

After I got back to the car, I headed to Riverside Park. But that's for another post.

Great shots! I especially like the first one but the moon shot is pretty terrific too!
