Golden & Blue by USS Little Rock on Buffalo River at Daybreak

Golden & Blue on Buffalo River

A strange sight on Buffalo River at daybreak. The left over broken up ice was flowing up the river as if the river reversed direction. And as it was floating by the shore the streetlights illuminated it with their warm light contracting the cool blue sky. Special filters were invented to get blue and gold but no filters needed this morning.

USS Little Rock was a Cleveland class cruiser, later converted to Little Rock class guided missile cruiser. Commissioned June 17, 1945 at Cramp Ship building Company, Philadelphia. Decommissioned November 1976.

USS Croaker is a Gato Class submarine commissioned on April 21, 1944 at Electric Boat Company, Groton, CT. Decommissioned December 20, 1971.
