In-Bound, Out-Bound New Orleans

Uploaded: May 19, 2014 03:30:22 | Entered: May 19, 2014 03:30:22


Hwy 90 looking west across the Mississippi River, to New Orleans. The bridge on the left is for outbound traffic while the other is for inbound traffic. The river is very murky. The slow shutter speed flattened out the water.

I had a business trip last week to southern Mississippi so took a quick side-trip to New Orleans.
