Just Another Fall On The Little Arkansas

.

What I find interesting about this image is the location.   Sure, it’s a nice fall scene on the Little Arkansas (Ar-Kan-Sas not Ar-Kan-Saw – it’s a local thing ).   What I find interesting is that it is in the middle of the largest city in Kansas, a metropolitan area of roughly 500,000 people last I heard.  If you look closely you can see a few small hints at civilization in the image – what you can’t see are the house lined streets that parallel the river, or the busy four lane bridge/street  behind the photographer.   This is one of those scenes you would have about a two second glimpse of while crossing the bridge in traffic.   I got that two second glimpse the other day, so later found a place to park and dashed out onto the bridge (not in the traffic lanes hehe) for a few quick frames.  Too bad the sky was so bland, but you can’t have everything.  I can always try again.   It  IS  possible to find scenes like this in a heavily urban area, just a little tricky.
