Clear and Cold Above the River


It's Skywatch Friday again, and the skies were clear with cold temperatures the day I took this photo of the railroad bridge across the Alabama River.

The bridge is located just upriver from the Edmund Pettus Bridge, which carries vehicles across from downtown. I got this shot from the walkway at Diego's Mexican Restaurant...more about the restaurant later.

Alicesg: Yes, this bridge is still in use. I have another photo posted some time ago that shows a train traveling across the bridge. Thanks!

You always have nice photos of Selma. Some day I need to tour Selma. I have never been there.

It seems as if the sky is more clear when it's colder.

Rail trestles always make good camera fodder don't they?

Lovely blue sky. The bridge cuts through the photo and makes a great focal point :)

This is so serene and lovely, and that bridge really makes the image within the sky.

How you conveyed it in your photo, I have no idea but it does look cold!
