Also known as the Bunker Hill Bridge, this cable-stayed bridge over the Charles River in Boston was erected as part of the "Big Dig". I took the photo at sunset and enhanced the tones with a blended color layer.

At the suggestion of a friend, I decided to clone the little clouds out of the version I originally entered; here's the replacement. Thank you, Michelle and Amy, for the encouraging comments.
