Sorry if this is redundant but I really like this subject (both the bridge and the challenge)
Here is another view of the Turtle Bay Sundial Bridge in Redding Ca. This time from the other side looking straight up to the apex. The guy wires trailing off to the right actually support the bridge. From this angle they look like one massive wire. I will post a small shot of the bridge itself.

Thanks,
Steve

Here is the complete bridge structure. For the above picture I was at the far end right against the left side of the tower.

Modern sculpture on an industrial scale. Great shots

Neat looking shot. It's nice to see such persistence and sheer doggedness.

I must agree with you that bridge can be like a magnet.

Thank you Cal and Selvin.
It is indeed a work of art on the grandest scale. I am longing to make the 70 mile drive back to shoot more pictures. The butterfly garden is alive with great photo ops as well.
Cheers,
Steve

Beautiful shots. I'd love to see the bridge in person.

Thank you Mcliu for your comments.
I have to say that this sugject causes me a happy frustration because I cannot decide which angle is the most photogenic.:lol: So, I just keep trying different angles, stretching my imagination. I guess, in the end, that's what it's all about.
All the best,
Steve

I went back and looked at your first image I had liked and now I think I like this one better. Good job.
