Bilbao - La Salve Bridge, Early Morning Traffic

La Salve Bridge - Bilbao, Spain.


Bilbao was just waking up this early Monday morning and traffic was only starting to flow on this famous bridge. There was a bit of heavy clouds in the sky, but luckily, light was still good and I just had enough time to shoot this scene before they turned off the street lamps.


La Salve Bridge was built in the 1970's to provide a northern access over the river to the city. This bridge gained popularity when the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao was built right under it, literally merging its structure into the museum's. Originally designed by Juan Batanero in 1972, the bridge was recently updated with a red arch designed by French artist Daniel Buren.
