Congratulations on POTD! Excellent contrast and lines. I love that you just show a section of the bridge. Most shots from here are of the whole expanse, which greatly minimizes the detail.

One small correction. It is the Rio Grande Gorge. The Royal Gorge is in Colorado and is twice as deep as this - roughly 1500 feet compared to 680 here in Taos. I live just a few miles from this bridge. #6761263

congratulations, amazing shot. #6761396

FYI to all--I have changed the name of the bridge in the comments to its correct name: Rio Grande Gorge Bridge. Being from Colorado and having been to the Royal Gorge bridge, I truly made a slip (brainfade!) All fixed! #6767994
