The Story of a Bridge and a Windswept Sunset by PhotoByTrace The Story of a Bridge and a Windswept Sunset by PhotoByTrace
The Story Bridge, looking back towards Brisbane city in Queensland, Australia.
After enjoying the photographic tour of the Story Bridge Climb I felt that I needed a photo of the bridge itself against the city skyline to "complete my set". So a couple of days later I headed up to the Wilson Outlook on Bowen Terrace to see if I could catch a sunset and the lit bridge at twilight.
Well, Mother Nature was very kind to me and gave me one of the more spectacular afternoons and sunsets I've seen in some time.

So I have put together a 4 photograph series taken over a 1 hour period. This is the third photo of the series. A 1minute exposure at sunset to catch the motion of the colour-lit clouds as they moved across the city.

The story of a Bridge series:

Glad you liked it! In terms of favourites, I haven't decided yet...for me it is between the first one and this one. This has less noise and a better crop I feel. But I enjoy both! :)
ps I didn't win the lotto last night ;)

Well why didn't you make some series with your bike on sunset or sunrise or with some beautiful Australian landscapes with great colors and roads? :D
Example: [link] and your bike parked on that bridge, maybe ;)

LOL... I'd end up in jail if I rode onto that jetty... but yes, I've had a few folk suggest my bike has been terribly neglected in my photos of late. I still have a number of photos to upload from my trip to SE Queensland. But I'll put my thinking cap on for locations for bike photos too.
