More From the Cuyahoga

The trip to the Cuyahoga River was over slippery rocks and stairs so I got some of the views of the area and the river flow. This is an example of some of the rocks I had to traverse carefully.
The opposite side of the river gives you an idea of the snow cover.

I took a close-up of this area for the shear beauty of the shot. If you check you can see exactly where I shot.
I went up on the observation tower to shoot down the river past the dam.
This was the parting shot down the flagpole from the top of the steps as I left the area. I took several flag shots but liked this one best.
Friends of mine, Sam and Sherry Servedio from New Castle, PA, sent me information on their daughter's talent. Her name is Bryana and she wrote and performed a song called 'Hazel'. Bryana is in college in New York and is a talented girl. You can hear the song on YouTube at this location. Why don't you check it out and let me know what you think.

Boy that makes me colder than I am already. Specially thinking about going up that tower. The wind here is just terrible, don't think I could make myself go up those steps.

Love the ice with the water!

A Great winter series of pics here Tom! I gotta ask you a question though... why are there bricks like that along the river wall? I've never seen that done before and how are they staying in place?
Your friend's daughter is passionate about singing & she has a nice voice.

I loved all the perspectives you shot in your photos! In the 1st one - I liked how the streetlamp looked prominent in front of the backdrop of buildings.

Tipper said...

Wow it'd be miserable to fall into that icy river water-makes me shiver! Love the pics as always!
