Walkway Over the Hudson - Poughkeepsie NY

When built in 1889, it was the longest bridge in the world.  Built for trains, it suffered fire damage and was closed for many years. It reopened in 2009 and has been a big draw for tourists and locals alike. The walkway is wide, stable and way way above the Hudson, giving the walker fabulous views.
This is a view of the bridge, looking east.
This is the view looking south at the Mid Hudson Bridge and the Hudson River.
And this is the view looking north.

These were taken at around 6 am during a Hudson Valley Photo Tour with Nancy.  A Floridian, she was in the area dropping off her son at a West Point camp and she wanted to take some great shots while she was up north.  We photographed for 8 hours - 4 in the evening, getting sunset shots at a couple of locations and 4 hours the following morning, getting sunrise shots at 2 more locations.  We wound up at an antique car show and photographed those beautiful automotive works of art.  Both of us got some wonderful photos and had a very good time together.
