Color Splash Reflection under Peace Bridge over Niagara River, Buffalo, New York (NY)

Color Splash Reflection under Peace Bridge, Buffalo, NY

The Niagara River has always been, remains, and is going to be a draw for people whether they take a walk on its banks, jog, bike, enjoy a sunset, or photograph it. Peace Bridge is also a structure I enjoy photographing a lot. It's a mighty structure crossing a mighty river. And since 2009, it's LED lighting makes it even more attractive after the Sun goes to sleep.

In this lighting pattern, each of the bridge sections was lit in alternating violet and red colors. That created a true splash of color reflected below in the Niagara River, one might say a special rainbow. But that would be the wrong bridge - Rainbow Bridge is a bit down the river past Grand Island and Niagara Falls. Anyway, the remaining blue from the sky, the violet and red from the bridge, and the green from the traffic light provided quite a palette!

Peace bridge forms an international border crossing between the cities of Buffalo, NY on the US side and Fort Erie on the Canadian side. It bridges the Niagara River as it flows out of the northeast side of Lake Erie. The bridge has two sections. A through-truss span over the Black Rock Canal, and five arched spans over the Niagara River. Peace Bridge is 5,800 feet (1,768 meters) long. It opened to public in 1927.
