Beautiful day in Dubuque today. Jeanne was at the church baking pies early this morning. More about that in another post. I had an early morning haircut and then headed for the river.
After my haircut I stopped by the church to see the pie baking process (and to take some images of course.) After a cup of coffee with Jeanne I headed for the river to see if there were any images to capture.
I had just got to the Lock & Dam and was getting ready to shoot when Jeanne called and said that she was all done with the pies and would like to join me. I told her where I was and I waited for her. The barge in the first image was slowly getting into place as there was a southbound barge coming through the lock ahead of him.
There were several fishing boats around the damn and some guys who climbed down the rocks to fish in the small inlet by the damn.
Although it was a little chilly the bright sunlight made it feel warmer and it was a wonderful morning on the river. I love this time of year and yes I enjoy the chilly temperature. We spent about 45 minutes waiting for this barge to lock through but it was clear it was going to be sometime before his turn so we decided to head out.
I found a few other things to shoot but had a full day of projects so decided I had better get some of those done before shooting any more. Hopefully I’ll get out tomorrow as well.
Thanks for checking in. Enjoy your Sunday and be careful.
