Here are a couple of the other bridges connecting Kentucky and Cincinnati, Ohio. I went down to the river on Saturday morning at about 7:30 AM expecting to have some fog as a background. Unfortunately, most if had cleared by the time I arrived. K20D with the DA*16-50mm.

#1: Daniel Carter Beard Bridge (I 475): Affectionately known in these parts as the "Big Mac" bridge due to the two arches.



#2: The L&N Bridge now known as the "Purple People Bridge." It used to carry the rail tracks for the Louisville & NashvilleRailroad but was recently converted to a "pedestrian only" bridge. Makes for a nice walk across the Ohio river.



#3: Another night shot of the Roebling Suspension bridge shot from the left bank which shows another side of the city skyline.

All great bridge shots, but the night one really stands out.

All are very cool. But, I really like the night shot.

Been dealing with malware or something all week on our desktop. Still not resolved, but decided to take a break from that and visit my friend's here using my laptop. Making me want to get out (even in the rain) and shoot things. Especially since I just got a new lens a week ago I have yet to have a chance to try. Been in my bag since Tuesday.

Jay, you really have a good eye. Your shots are very easy on the eyes!

Thanks Glenn! That's a nice compliment. The lighting really helped set the tone for both the morning shots as well as the twilight/night shots.

Dwag & Patti: Thanks for you comments as well.

Here's the last in the series from the shoot: Great American Ball Park, Home of the "not so hot" Cincinnati Reds.

Very interesting idea for a series, Jelpee! I've been thinking of doing something similar with the St. Louis bridges across the Mississippi. Those bridges really have some great lines to their architecture!

The night shot was my favorite until I got to the Reds stadium & then I got smile on since the Reds are in town, facing my Cardinals! It was a shame that they traded Griffey, Jr to the ChiSox but that's baseball!

Thanks for sharing!
