Burr Bridge abutment – Scotia

   Until yesterday, the first time and only time I have photographed the Stockade from across the Mohawk River, at Scotia’s Washington Avenue and its Burr Bridge abutment, was Labor Day of 2009.  See the posting here. At the time, I was content with my Canon PowerShot’s 12x optical zoom.  When it needed to be replaced, the comparable PowerShot had a 35x optical zoom, and it quickly spoiled me.  So, I’ve been waiting for a blue-sky day to visit the Scotia Burr Abutment to see how grand the Stockade looks from Scotia on a sunny autumn day.  I was not disappointed, and I hope you won’t be either.
