Pedestrian Bridge

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist
 
Pedestrian Bridge
Pedestrian Bridge
This is an IR shot of the new Nebraska-Iowa pedestrian footbridge. I shot it from the Iowa side last weekend, looking towards Omaha. Less than two weeks ago, they had the fireworks display on the Nebraska side, as Part 1 of the grand opening. Part 2 occurs on Sunday, when they do the ribbon cutting ceremony on the Iowa side. Then, the bridge will be open to the public; e.g., me! I hope to get their Sunday evening for a few twilight shots.

F11, 1/160th sec, ISO 200, 35mm focal length

This is great, Ken! How long is this bridge? (Besides "Long enough to reach both sides" :) ) What a nice piece of architecture and you captured it so well.

WOW!!! WOW!!! WOW!!!
That is my absolute favorite word to hear about a photo. The composition...and the bridge itself, are both brilliant! It's technically perfect and astonishingly beautiful. Should be a Grand Prize, Ken.
