This is the Bellevue toll bridge that spans the Missouri River. I'm standing on the Nebraska side, looking east towards Iowa. This is about 5 minutes from where I work.

Lately I've been posting IR shots on Friday and will continue the tradition.

Wonderful IR work, Ken! Love that golden sky...and the rust color of the bridge - adds a lot of interest! I would love to learn how to do this!

Ken, love your "casual Friday" approach to photography; such a dramatic image, looks kind of like the "end of time"; fascinating and will definitely look forward to next Friday!!

The toll bridge never looked so good, Ken. The composition here is beautiful and I love the colors in combination with the IR. What a great sky--not only the color but the clouds forming almost a halo around the center trees and the lines radiating outward. Love this--really :)
