A Bridge So Far


One of the other things I shot last night was the Sunshine Skyway, the bridge across the mouth of Tampa Bay. I'd been meaning to get up there to shoot it since they finished repainting it almost a year ago. This is from the south rest stop, probably a little over a mile away from the center span. The yellow support cables are lit from beneath, so the ones you see the best are the ones you can see the underside of. This was probably a two minute exposure, and that's why the headlights and taillights are long trails on the approach. And it was a nice clear night so you don't see a lot of scattered light in the atmosphere.
