    Incredible capture. It just can't be fully appreciated except if you're standing there!

thank you Michelle. Even though I could see the entire bridge, it was hard to visualize just how large it was until I shot this closeup of the workers. Here is a shot of the entire project so you can see the scale.

Thank you Jodi. I took the trip for this shot because of Jeff. His series from there fascinated me so just had to try it myself. Thanks for the inspiration Jeff.

Michelle, thanks so much for the lovely comment.

Jeff, I'm really looking forward to our next outing. Wish it could be in your territory. Would love to visit there.

Thank you Kathy. I have my fingers crossed.

Tony, why don't you meet me in Vegas and we'll go see how they're doing on this thing?

4 1/2 for me and free rooms to boot so needless to say, if any of y'all head that way, let us know. The buffet is on us. :o)

Wonderful capture of the "worker bees" on that massive structure, Dale.
Congrats on this and your other finalists, and best of luck next level!

thanks so much Carla. On my next trip I plan to go back to the site and see if the bridge is finished. I took this with my small walk around camera 'cause it has a better zoom than my regular camera.
