Hi Alekhya,
A fascinating note to accompany your image, and one that resonates for me, I never think its fair when people consider what was once a wonder to no longer be so. Once upon a time, the Flatiron in New York was a wonder. Its not an engineering marvel anymore, but still loved! The same applies to many great feats of building around the world, and to my eyes, this is one very impressive bridge with some amazing numbers to go with it. 1500 feet in a single span? That gets a wow from me.

Your chosen view is beautiful too, as we look at it here, you have composed this in a way that the foreground gives me a sense of place, it is not a picture of the bridge, it is a picture of a persons view of the bridge from this place, and that changes its feel significantly, putting much more emphasis on the close connection that you make, and which you show so well in your well thought out note.

Fantastic post, and a true Trekearth one too!
All the best

Default To Noel_Byrne: Correct

Hello Noel,
You are correct that "it is not a picture of the bridge, it is a picture of a persons view of the bridge from this place" ... yes, I wanted to see the bridge from "my" point of view. That is why I wrote the note in first person. As if it is trying to fly and I want to resist that.
I am so happy that you read my feelings.
And thanks for your appreciation on the photo.
