This past week ...

... wasn't my best for being down by the river. The leaves are gone and thanks to the end of daylight savings time, by the time I get close to home after work it's pretty much dark already.

I did get a few pictures, though. And while they're not going into my Best of the Best folder, they're okay.

The Amber Brittany is one of the prettiest boats on the Ohio River, partly because of its design and partly because of its color scheme.

And two deckhands of the Brittany discuss something before the boat pulls out of the Campbell fleet below Point Pleasant, W.Va., and heads down the river.

My favorite bridge silhouetted by the post-sunset sky ...

And in light and shadow from the morning sun ...

The autumn colors were pretty dull around here. About the only place you'll find any decent colors on leaves are along the river, such as this sidewalk at Harris Riverfront Park in Huntington, W.Va.

And you might find some color once you leave the park if a classic VW Beetle makes a left turn a block ahead of you.

I saw a couple of boats on the Kanawha River this week. There was the Iron Duke upbound...

And the Dr. Edwin H. Welch downbound.

I didn't see the Welch until it has passed a good shooting spot, and I didn't have time to wait for it to get to the next. Oh well.
