On the Wing Dam

Yesterday was an incredibly beautiful day around here and I headed into Lambertville to do another painting along the river. Just south of the Lambertville boat club which I painted recently, there's a wing dam across the Delaware River. You can walk out on the dam to almost the middle of the river - it's a wide dam so it's pretty safe, and it's fun standing out there completely surrounded by the river, peaceful above the dam, roaring rapids below.

This first painting is from the New Jersey shore, looking across the wing dam toward the old mill works and new townhouses in New Hope, Pa:

I finished the first painting but it was such a nice day that I really didn't want to leave. So I turned 90 degrees and painted the view looking downstream. There's a small island on the right, and this channel joins the main river in the distance:

Just for kicks (and if this works right) here's a satellite view of the wing dam. Lambertville, NJ is on the right hand side:
