One More from the Concord River

Yesterday I posted the long exposures from my two stops on the Concord river. Here’s the best of the rest.

Under the Old North Bridge.

Up stream from the bridge.

A spider web that I couldn’t really get focused on.
Untitled

There was a tour group there as well as a number of other people visiting. I tried not to get them in the shots, but I sometimes failed.
Untitled

This is a 30 second exposure that I missed yesterday. I was hoping the tour group by the British monument would have moved around more. Oh well.
Untitled

Again, some damn tourist got into my shot.
Untitled

The “Shot Heard Round the World” was fired over that bridge.
Untitled

I’m not sure how much, if any, of this bridge still remains from 1775. Let’s just pretend it’s all original, shall we?
Untitled

The Minuteman monument.

The… other monument. I have a picture on Flickr somewhere that includes the inscription. It’s right next to a memorial to the fallen British soldiers, so I assume that’s the side the Redcoats were on when the shooting started. The Minuteman is on the other side of the bridge, so that must be where the colonists were lined up.

I saw a few kayaks, but they were kind enough to stay out of my damn shots.

I like the look of the water here.

And now we move on to the Middlesex Canal in Billerica, MA. My phone rang twice as I was standing here and I didn’t hear it at all. It’s a pretty loud little water fall. I don’t recall there being so much debris here the last time I visited.
Untitled

The water dropped over the falls and hit something right there that made it spray straight back up again. I couldn’t tell what it was.
Untitled

The North Billerica train station on the MBTA Lowell line is right around the corner from here, and there’s a renovated mill building with a bunch of businesses. There are a couple of abandoned buildings too.
Untitled

Ducks!
Untitled

This is one of the most lily pad infested stretches of river I’ve ever seen. Assuming, of course, that those are actual lily pads.
Untitled

A gazebo.
Untitled

The view from that tower would be better without all the power lines, but what can ya do, right?
Untitled

That’s the mill building across the street.
Untitled

That black blur near the top of the smoke stack is a bird, not a UFO.
Untitled

One last look.
Untitled

There you go. The Concord river.
