It’s time for another picture of the week! Sorry for slacking for a couple of weeks but I’m back with a doozy to make up for it.
The Margaret Hill Hunt Bridge (designed by Santiago Calatrava) is a beautiful, 400-foot bridge which runs from downtown Dallas into the newly-renovated Trinity Groves area. Completed in 2012 it quickly became an iconic part of the Dallas skyline. It’s even been in many of my previous pictures of the week!
I wanted to get a unique perspective for this picture so I (illegally) walked in the shoulder of the roadway right next to the first connection point for the suspension wires. I love how your eye naturally focuses on that wire, drawing your eye all the way up to the arch and subsequent Dallas skyline!
For the photographers: I shot this using my Sony a7rII and a Canon 17mm tilt shift lens (via a Fotodiox adapter). Without the tilt shift lens this shot would’ve been nearly impossible, so I was glad to have it. The light trails on the right are a combination of 4 different shots as cars drove by, and then I followed the rest of my normal post-processing workflow like usual. Let me know if you have any questions!
