This is beautiful, Ryan, with strong leading lines and great details. The sky, of course, is awesome. No cars! #1510004

I've been to this bridge several times..lucky you to not get the bridge vibrating from the cars. And excellent work with the slow-mo filter. Beautiful shot and congrats to you! #11074710
