Sunset behind the Squaw Island Bridge, Black Rock Canal, Buffalo, NY.

Sunset behind the Squaw Island Bridge

Squaw Island Bridge on Robert Rich Way (previously West Ferry Street) in Buffalo, NY at sunset.

It was a beautiful evening, warm, with fresh breeze over the river. Sun had set, the sky was colorful. A crane ship was docked at the nearby water treatment plant. Most people were wrapping up their evening on Squaw Island and heading home. I also photographed this same scene without the incoming car but like this one much more. It feels more alive!

The bridge is a lift bridge, or a bascule bridge and crosses the Black Rock Canal (I've also seen references to Black Rock Channel) that runs parallel to the NIagara River in Buffalo, NY. It provides access to the Squaw Island and its Broderick Park and the Bird Island Pier. The park is under construction as of this writing and repairs are also scheduled for the pier.
