Downriver



Crossing the Delaware River, between Pennsylvania and New Jersey, looking south.  We were coming home from some college visits in Philadelphia, and I snapped this from the car as we crossed the bridge into New Jersey.

To view wonderful sky shots from all over the world, please visit Skywatch Friday.

That is beautiful. The river is gorgeous. My only close body of water is a very muddy Rio Grande river. Yours is MUCH nicer!

The Delaware is a beautiful river and youve captured that in your photo!

Hi Mary thanks for stopping by, SWF.
The clouds in you picture, do seem to have some sort of plan, to get where ever in a direct route.
Its a lovely mood shot and something good to see what ever time of the day.
