River Town

The Elizabeth River is a busy, urban, working river. Standing at Waterside (in the background with blue roof), one can watch an array of ships, including freighters, war ships, working tugs and an occasional tall ship flying a foreign flag. Home to one of the busiest harbors on the East coast and the largest naval base in the world, Norfolk, Virginia is proud of its nautical history.

  1. I love the effect of the overpowering red in the second image.

  2. Lee, thanks for commenting. It is a bit overpowering. I took these shots back in the winter when it was very gray. The red ship is quite a contrast to the usual drab colors of working boats.
