Looking at the Sky on Friday




I took this pictures when were on the road from Wal-Mart last weekend. I tried to capture one of the bridge of monongahela river, the color of the trees which are all very sad to see because they are all dry and dead and the different ble shades of the sky on that day.

Information from Wikipedia,
The Monongahela River (pronounced /məˌnɒŋɡəˈheɪlə/, also known locally as the Mon /ˈmɒn/) is a river on the Allegheny Plateau in North-Central West Virginia and southwestern Pennsylvania in the United States. At Pittsburgh, it meets the Allegheny River to form the Ohio River. The word "Monongalia" is a Latinized version of the Native American word "Monongahela," which means "falling banks," in reference to the geological instability of the river's banks. Moravian missionary David Zeisberger gave this account of the naming: In the Indian tongue the name of this river was Mechmenawungihilla, which signifies a high bank, which is ever washed out and therefore collapses.
