Been a long time since I posted to this blog just can’t seem to find the energy or the words. The pics are another story I have a ton of shots that have not been posted before so maybe if I just post the pics and keep my words to a minimum I can pull this off.
The image was from a powerful line of thunderstorms from this past June and the clouds are Mammatus hope you enjoy viewing this !!
I photographed these fireworks from the Ohio River bridge over the fourth of July weekend. It was a great view for them and and even more unique spot to capture their beauty !!
In my last posts I shared images of the new Madison Milton Bridge and described what a great job was done in building the new structure. Even though the bridge has many new details that make it a great replacement for the old bridge the one that I like the most is the walkway built on it’s east side.
Walking the bridge has become the new pastime for many downtown Madison Indiana residents it’s great physical activity and plus you get fantastic views of the Ohio River you were never able to get before. More than that the walkway has become a great place t0 photograph the river valley. There are so many fascinating subjects you are able to capture, from the power plant to the barges and boats that navigate the river below, it is a photographers dream location for the Madison area.
The image I am sharing was done earlier this spring during a beautiful sunset. The walkway gives a great unobstructed view of the valley and you are able to get great sunset shots with out the hills and trees getting in the way. I hope you enjoy the image and if you get a chance to travel to Madison take a walk across the bridge I think you will really enjoy it.
Here is another image of the new bridge over the Ohio River at Madison Indiana. This time I created this shot during a snowstorm at 3 am, best time to get out with no people in the way. All kinds of elements were going in this shot, light,snow and reflections in the river and I think I brought them together for a pretty good image.
The bridge is just one of the many great subjects you can photograph here. Historic Architecture to beautiful natural settings, they all surround the Madison Indiana area making it one of the best spots in Indiana for photography.
Hope you enjoy the image and thanks for stopping by and taking a look.
In the time I have been away from this blog many things have happened in our community of Madison Indiana and one of the great things was the opening of the new Madison Milton bridge. Many who had traveled the old bridge can tell stories of how bad it shook or meeting a large vehicle coming from the other direction and thinking you wouldn’t make it thru, and there were many mishaps on the bridge as well.
But all that changed with the new bridge. The lanes are very wide and it has a great pedestrian walkway built on the outside of the bridge as well. So travel over the new bridge has a totally different feel than the old one. But the old one had some pretty cool character to it and it was great to photograph as well.
So I thought I might start sharing some photos of the new bridge just so you can see for yourself in case you never get to drive over it. This image came last winter and I really like how the bridge was throwing down that great shadow over the landscape. With the snow and cold I thought it was best processed as a black and white conversion to show the mood in the valley that day.
I will share more in the days ahead and I hope you enjoy this image and thanks for stopping by and taking a look !!
