In the middle of the highway sitting on the divider.... I new that was the best view to get this image and I know no one else could ever get it from that angle! #6614698

I want to thank you all for routing me on and I look forward to capturing more and more photography's that will keep intriguing your taste and interests!

For you that donít know me or the story behind this photography... I walked up the Charleston Ravenal Bridge one night after countless times I drove over the bridge. I new the shot I wanted and one day ran across the bridge to the median. After setting up my camera while cars zoomed by I got the chance to take 2 Photography. When I went to take my 3rd a cop pulled up next to me...... After talking myself out of a ticket I went home to edit my capture..
Photography can put you in some weird places...

Thank you.. Iíll never stop my love for this Art medium!!!! #6834362
