The Big Mac
  "The Big Mac"
"The Big Mac"
1/125s @ f/10, ISO 125, Nikkor 24-70mm,f/2.8 @ 70mm (T&P).
The Daniel Carter Beard Bridge is named after the founder of the Boy Scouts, who was born and raised nearby. However, many locals, including traffic reporters, ignore the bridge's official name and instead call it "The Big Mac Bridge". The nickname stems from an early 1980's attempt by McDonald's to open a floating restaurant on the Newport Riverfront. McDonald's withdrew plans when completion of the Riverside Drive interchange ramps were delayed due to local opposition.
First day in OBX, cold, cloudy and windy but beautiful. Posting images from my recent trip to Cincinnati. Will catch up with you all later this evening!

It's been pouring down rain here most of the day. Have been shooting from the upper deck inside the house with the sliding glass doors open - not very exciting!

Beautiful image! (The weather here was fine, but I had a dental procedure, so I didn't get to enjoy it)
