A couple of weeks ago my friend Andreas posted an image on his blog that he took of the iconic Julian Dubuque Bridge that goes between Iowa and Illinois. He shot it from an angle that I was unfamiliar with. I’ve taken hundreds of images of the bridge from both sides of the river but I really liked what he had captured.
So last week Jeanne was gone to Chicago and so I set out to see if I could find the location where he made his image. I tried both sides of the river but ran out of energy and patience before finding it. 🙂
Yesterday we did our annual journey to the Farmers’ Market and after an hour or so I told her I wanted to look for the location again. Jeanne is always game for a photo exploration so we set out to find it. I’ve lived here 37 years and have never been where we were yesterday. 🙂
This is an image of the JD Bridge from the Illinois side of the river, which I took a week ago and it gave me a clue as to how to get to the location I was looking for. It’s not an easy trek and not without some peril as the rocks are large and very difficult to walk on.

On the way back to the car I saw this structure protruding from the river. I assume it is some type of tie off for river boats or barges.
It was a fun Saturday morning and I got some interesting images from the Farmers’ Market.
That’s it for today. Thanks for stopping by the blog. Enjoy your day and be careful.
