Paddlewheel and Mississippi River
12 February 2006 Coleen Perilloux Landry

Paddlewheel and Mississippi River

New Orleans, Louisiana

I had to pose for a calendar on the River in the French Quarter early this morning--the coldest day of the year, temperatures below freezing and a 20 mph wind out of the northwest. Froze.
The bright blue sky and the sun shining on the River with the Crescent City Connection bridge in the background was a shot that said "take me."
I added several New Orleans French Quarter to my "Katrina Was No Lady" gallery today.

So, are you 'Miss February' , Coleen? LOL

Great B&W image - nice to see the bridge is in tact.

Perfect for b/w. It really brings out the shapes and the sparkle on the water.

Tell us about the calendar, Coleen. This is wonderful, tho I can't feel too badly about your weather conditions :)

Beautiful lighting on the river. Very nice contrast btw the highlights there and the dark paddlewheel.
