SkyWatch Friday: Niagara River Clouds

The Niagara River and Peace Bridge, Squaw Island, New York. September 11, 2011.

This is my post for Skywatch Friday, a meme for sharing views of the sky from all over the world.  To see more, or to join and share your own photos of the sky, click HERE.

My daughter and her husband live near Buffalo, New York, and they showed us around when we visited them earlier this month.  We didn’t make it to Niagara Falls, but we did get to the Niagara River.  One of the places we visited was Squaw Island, on the northern outskirts of Buffalo.

I captured these pictures of the colds above the river from Squaw Island.  The picture above was taken looking south from the island.  The bridge is the Peace Bridge connecting Buffalo with Canada.

A railroad trestle between the U. S. and Canada, Squaw Island, New York. September 11, 2011.

This second picture was taken looking north toward a railroad trestle running between the two countries.  I like the way the big white cloud is looming over the bridge.
