what an interesting bridge, and a great set of photographs....I am a big fan of lines and angles...always have been! Great work!!! My favorite is the first one!!
A great set of photos, they really show off the lines of the bridge.
It's a stunning bridge
It's hard to take a bad photo of the bridge, except during the day when it's packed with tourists.
I spent some time in the area a few years ago. The entire river canyon has myriad opportunities for wildlife and plan life, plus historical/man-made opportunities.
The Turtle Bay museum by this bridge often has spectacular displays. Definitely worth stopping in, plus there's a nice arboretum.
Lol trust me...I've taken really bad shots too!
But you're right...many opportunities for photos. And my daughter is a teen volunteer at the Turtle Bay museum. She cleans animal poop with pride!
Love the bridge, especially at night. The Redding area has some great places to photograph and I've been making plans to visit it again. Thanks for posting these!
Skimmed through your Flicker.
I recognize "Lassen."
Ooh, nice bridge.
Fantastic images! Really cool structure.
I apologize if my comment ("hard to take a bad photo ...) implied that the original images lacked any appeal. That's just the opposite- they were very stunning photos! Probably the best I've seen of that bridge.
Kudos to your daughter, too! It's a fun place to visit and seems like it would be a great place to work.
A most excellent series that is publication worthy!
sensational photographs shown here, i liked them a lot as they are remarkable one for us to save them as our desktop wallpapers
I love architecture sessions over night... Beautiful symmetrical views!
The documentary about the making of the bridge, "Angle of Inspiration," is now on youtube: [ame=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2PXJKUkoDxQ]Angle Of Inspiration (Sundial Bridge documentary) - YouTube[/ame]
Or you can buy it for $100 on Amazon
Now I know I really didn't do justice photographing this bridge. Bridge designed by a genius.
I'm going to photograph it again. I've done some medium format film of the bridge...I better find it.
I can tell you, today everyone in Redding loves the bridge.
Here's a scanned image of a B&W medium format taken with Hasselblad last year. Then spent the afternoon developing and printing in the darkroom.
It's labor intensive imo. And if I'm going to end up just scanning into a JPG file..
Actualy B&W photo looks much better... but I question why I'm still hanging on to film.
