The Sunshine Skyway Bridge at Sunset
Here is the Sunset Shot that Matches Yesterdays Post: http://www.awesomephotographyblog.com/twilight-photography/the-sunshine-skyway-bridge-in-twilight/
I have always found the Sunshine Skyway to be one of the most elusive Landmarks to Photograph. Getting the right lighting, clouds, and weather plus getting the lights on the top of the span to all cooperate is a full time job.
While driving home from the office on Friday night, November 11th, 2008, we noticed that the clouds were tall and billowy. The light was exceptional. The weather was picture perfect. The Paint job and lights on the bridge were all brand new. After Years of chasing the Skyway with Lori (In memoriam 1960 – 2008), we finally got some awesome shots of this, the most magnificent of all bridges.
This HDR Photograph was taken from the South Fishing Pier just minutes before Sunset.
