More about the bridge...

I thought you may be interested in more shots of the bridge I posted Sunday.
We made a trip to Omaha so my hubby could catch an early morning flight to see family. One rule we have is that we stay in Omaha until the person traveling is up, up and away. You know me, I am always looking for some sort of adventure and of course I had my camera with me. My first idea was to take a shot of downtown Omaha skyline early in the morning. Still working on the settings for this particular type of shots. As the sun was rising it hit me to go and explore the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge. Wish I would have been a bit more prepared, this was a wonderful place for photos, but I was not dressed properly to be out  for long out in the chilly temps.
So here's a little taste of the riverfront area in downtown Omaha, Nebraska.

Omaha Skyline--predawn 

Up, up and away!!

The color edition of the B&W shot posted sunday.

The Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge is located in the downtown area of Omaha. It links Omaha to Council Bluffs, IA.    More about the bridge

I'm off to prepare for the impending snowstorm.... Happy Tuesday!!


  1. Wow what great photos Val! I took some sunset photos on our walk last night, but seeing we were up in the woods, I didn't let it get too dark. Not as gorgeous as yours though. :-)

  2. I love sunrise! You really captured the pastels over the river! Stay warm!!

  3. they are gorgeous, i like the composition of the condo reflections... so may photos to take so little time...

  4. Hi Val, Girl you have a wonderful eye for photos-great shots. I hope you've buttoned down the hatches and are ready with the girls for the storm. Hopefully your hubby won't be traveling in it. Stay inside and stay warm. Wish I could come have a cup of tea with you and the girls.
    Hugs, Noreen

  9. I'm glad I stopped by. I have friends from Norfolk, Omaha and Lincoln who are some of the most down to earth people I know. I've always been curious about this great state!

  10. Absolutely awesome photos Val! I love each and every one!! We actually have seen quite a bit of Iowa when we were out traveling around in the RV...one of my favorite parks to stay at is in North Liberty Iowa...friendly folks!! xo Jeanne

  11. I love the one of the skyline!! I'm surprised you weren't prepared to be out in chilly temps.. it's February! ;)
