Long Description:
In this case, the railroad bridge trusses are reflected in the Genesee River, as well as the control booth (as a solid rectangular shadow) in the center of the trusse shadow. Clearly the satelite image on googlemaps www.googlemaps.com was captured early in the morning to produce such a splendidly complete shadow!

Hints of such a shadow can be seen in my picture of the bridge, as the structure of the bridge is reflected off the Genesee River to the west of the bridge. This was taken on a still but rainy day, which didn't provide a perfectly smooth reflection, but better than a clear and breezy day would have!
