Mohawk mist on the last full day of summer

foggy morning - approaching the kiddie playground at Riverside Park, Schenectady Stockade - 7:30 AM 21Sep09 ..

Yesterday’s fog along the Mohawk got me out taking photos at 7 AM, when it was a bit too foggy for optimal effect, and then an hour later, when the fog was mostly lifted.

a view of the Isle of the Cayugas in the Mohawk River from the end of Washington Ave., Schenectady, on a foggy morning - 7 AM 21Sep09 The result was a variety of images that seem like an excellent way to spotlight the last full day of a summer that was often rainy and cool, but also offered many near-perfect, refreshing sunny days.   [As always, scroll over a photo for a brief description and click on it for a larger version.]  I’m not going to offer any commentary, since the photos seem to speak for themselves — for example, this series of a rower traversing the almost fog-free stretch of the Mohawk and Stockade between the foggier Western Gateway Bridge and the CSX rail trestle (at 8:30 AM):
