Cincinnati Red 1/160s @ f/16, ISO 800, Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8 @ 38mm. (EoD) A replica of the American Queens paddlewheel is the centerpiece of the National Steamboat Monument on the Cincinnati Public Landing. The paddlewheel is surrounded by an interactive whistle grove, steel columns which steam and make music when you walk through. Along the riverfront there are more columns with information about steamboat history. It's a beautiful riverfront, if you ever get a chance to visit.And the starburst was totally natural - I was shooting into the sun!
