Dominick- I enjoyed the story behind this beautiful bridge. The elements of it are amazing and beautiful. Love the design work of it. It is an EOD delight. But added to the beauty of the bridge is your incredible talent for doing night pictures. Your mastery of night time photography amazes me. I love the glow you capture and yet you get the details of the most minute things so sharp and clear. Phenominal work my friend.
Have a great day, enjoy. #8510432

Description


(((~~ ELEMENTS OF DESIGN ~~)))
That this audacious bridge is a design of Santiago Calatrava cannot be denied. As most of his works, the main materials used are white concrete and white steel, hence the name. It spans the Nervion River in a delicate curvy equilibrium connecting the Campo Volantín Boulevard with the area of Uribitarte, where two sleek skyscrapers have recently been erected (Isozaki Atea) by Arata Isozaki on the ground of a former warehouse.

Like most of the works by the Swiss-based architect, this bridge is extremely controversial. The design is so repetitive and ubiquitous that it does not surprise any more (although this one dates back to 1997, when there were not so many around yet). Plus, the floor is made of glass panels, which in addition of being highly slippery when it rains, are very fragile and costly to replace. But no doubt the effect of walking on a semi-transparent surface is great.


Exif: F Number: 2.8, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 2/1 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 64, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 4.70 mm, Model: COOLPIX P80
