Mississippi Crossing

I have crossed the Mississippi River numerous times and always find it an exciting place to stop and spend a few days to photograph.  This bridge is located at the river crossing between the towns of Vidalia, La. and Natchez. Ms., and straddles the state line.  I made this image with a Canon 5D11 at around 9 p.m.  I was on the western side of the river in the town a Vidalia and found a nice public walk way that goes down under the bridge.  On the other side of the river is the old historic beautiful town of Natchez.  It is fill with old civil war era homes and plenty of history to explore.  The Mississippi River is a fascinating place to just sit and watch the barges go up and down the river.


  1. I keep trying to see with your eyes when trying to improve my photos. I think I'm getting better just for having kept an eye on this blog. I while ago you mentioned cypress trees in the preserve near where you live. They are my favorite tree, love to take pictures of them. Thanks again for sharing.

  2. I am glad you enjoy photography and learning to truly see the wonderful things that surrounds us all. The camera has a wonderful way of helping us achieve that. The cypress tree is one of the few trees that lose their leaves in the winter here in Fl. I have always felt that the true character of trees are revealed when they are bare of leaves. Good luck with your photography and thanks for stopping by. John
