Mediaval bridge over River Cávado called "Ponte do Porto" and located at Pousada, Braga, Portugal
Another one from yesterday's sunrise, I liked the way the sun was illuminating the bridge structure and thought it would make a great mono shot

I always desired to take a photo of the Brooklyn bridge because, since I was a child, I've always seen its shape on an famous brand of an italian chewing gum. As a mythical landmark in my mind, I've ever desired to frame it by night, under his enormous span. The cold wind I've suffered has been a fair tribute for the the result achieved: in a single long exposition I've got the Manhattan Bridge and the Empire State Building decorated for XMas. The title is inspired to a famous Rolling Stones album according to the fact that in New York more than 800 languages are spoken, like in a modern Babylon.

Le pont du 25-Avril (ou pont 25-Avril) est le premier pont suspendu au-dessus du Tage, à Lisbonne, au Portugal.
En 1960, encore sous la dictature de Salazar, la décision est prise de faire un pont sur le Tage. Cette tâche est confiée aux Américains de l’American Bridge avec l’aide de onze sociétés locales1. L'acier provient de la United States Steel Export Company. Les travaux débutent deux ans plus tard et en moins de quatre ans le pont est prêt avec six mois d'avance le 6 août 1966, jour de son inauguration. Le pont est nommé pont Salazar, homme fort du pays. Mais tout de suite après la révolution des œillets, on le renomme pont du 25-Avril, jour de la révolution.
Vue au niveau du fleuve
Les plans du pont du 25 avril sont inspirés du pont Bay Bridge, entre San-Francisco et Oakland en Californie. Il s'agit d'un pont suspendu ancré au sol avec tabliers à deux niveaux en poutres à treillis1. La Société américaine de génie civil mentionne que les deux ponts se trouvent dans une région avec une longue histoire de séismes et que cela a été pris en compte dans leur construction. Le pont du 25 avril ressemble également au Golden Gate de San-Francisco ainsi qu'au pont sur le Forth d'Édimbourg.
À son inauguration, le pont était le plus long pont suspendu et celui ayant la plus longue travée principale d'Europe continentale. Il avait également le plus long treillis continu et les plus profondes fondations au monde. Il était le cinquième plus long pont suspendu du monde, le plus long hors des États-Unis, et est toujours en 2008, le 19e.
Les dimensions du pont sont1 :
La travée principale est de 1012,88 mètres ;
La longueur totale du pont est de 2277,64 mètres ;
Le tirant d'air à l'endroit le plus élevé du tablier est de 70 mètres ;
Les piliers culminent à 190,47 mètres au-dessus du niveau de la mer, ce qui fait de ce pont la deuxième construction la plus haute du Portugal ;
Le câble principal a un diamètre de 58,6 centimètres ;
Les fondations du pilier sud plongent à 79,3 mètres de profondeur.
This image shows how man made objects can be used to explore and experiment with landscape photography. The sun was low enough to enhance the shadows of the arches and gentle enough not to overwhelm.

I couldn't resist the opportunity to get out of the house with a friend last night. We went for a sunset shot but that didn't work out. Glad we stuck around though, I wasn't expecting these super reflections from the lights on the Severn Bridge.
Tower Bridge opened last night to allow Dixie Queen to pass through. The Gherkin can be seen through the bridge.
I took this picture in Newcastle upon Tyne. I hope you'll like it
I had to make tonight’s shot of the Story Bridge, because I just climbed it with my team from work !
From the right hand side, you climb to the top of the pillar, spending a few minutes at the top enjoying the view, down the other side, across the span to the middle of the bridge (above the blue light on the left), cross from one side of the bridge to the other (spending a few more minutes watching the cars on a 6 lane highway zipping under foot), then back up the near side to the top of the pillar again and finally back down to ground level.
A great way to watch the sun go down and the gaze into the city lights (not to mention the ferrys cruising the river - like the one responsible for the light trail at the bottom).
A shot of the Runcorn / Widnes bridge taken because I couldn't sleep in the hot hotel room; I ended up getting early and this was the result .. Can't say as I was too bothered after that, one of my personal favourites.
(Although, I've got a feeling I'll never be able to match the quality and popularity of this photo, it's kind of like my own personal Sgt. Pepper :-/ )
The old US Highway 45 Tombigbee River Bridge at Aberdeen, Ms.
Don't make a wrong turn!
Built in 1930 by the Nashville Bridge Co. Bypassed by a new bridge in 1981 when the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway was built.

The Rialto Bridge is the most famous of the bridges that cross the Grand Canal. In this area, which originally housed the food market, there has always been a canal crossing, at first, a simple bridge of boats, and later a real wooden bridge, made from two inclined ramps with a mobile section in the middle, in order to allow the passage of ships.
The current Rialto Bridge, a stone arch, was constructed under the supervision of Antonio da Ponte, between 1588 and 1591. The construction was made difficult by the conditions of instability and by the height of the sea bottom. The structure, very similar in style to the previous wooden bridge, is formed by two inclined ramps, with shops on each side, covered by a portico.
Back from Venice. Classic Rialto Bridge shot during blue hour.
Perfect weather during the day lead to clear skies at the end of the day.

There are millions of pictures of Calgary's Peace Bridge. I am adding a few more.
When I read 52 Places to Go in 2014 in the New York Times and saw Calgary's Peace Bridge as part of its entry as number 17, I knew I wanted to attempt capturing the Peace Bridge, too. I really like Chris Bolin's photograph.
I just noticed that the lights along the bottom right hand side are dark. That is, they are not lit. I guess that adds to the photograph in making it more interesting.
My friend Bernie also has an excellent picture of the Peace Bridge, which I encourage you to visit.

This bridge often, overlooked by the bridges of Madison County and much further east of them, is the Hammond Covered Bridge, just south of Indiana, Iowa in Marion County. It can be caught early morning with little crowds, however if very rainy or flooded times of year, it may not be accessible.

Another view of the magnificent Tower Bridge over the Thames in London from the #london14pw Photowalk with +Gordon Laing
Three Bridges visible in this image cross the East-River; the Williamsburg Bridge, The Manhattan Bridge and the Brooklyn Bridge in the foreground.
The Williamsburg Bridge is a suspension bridge in New York City across the East River connecting the Lower East Side of Manhattan with the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn near the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway.
The Manhattan Bridge is a suspension bridge that crosses the East River in New York City.
Connecting Lower Manhattan with Brooklyn.
The Brooklyn Bridge is one of the oldest suspension bridges in the United States. Completed in 1883, it connects the boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn by spanning the East River.
This image was taken from the South Street Seaport Pier in Lower Manhattan.
Thank you for your comments, I truly appreciate them.

Early morning on the bridge that crosses from Maryland into West Virginia. This is a railroad bridge that has the Appalachian Trail pedestrian bridge attached that crosses at Harpers Ferry.
The red light in the scene is from one of the railroad warning lights. It added some neat ambiance to the scene :)

Another shot from the Photo 24 London.
Opened in June 2002 this architectural marvel was shut almost immediately after an unexpected swaying motion set in when participants of a charity walk tried to open it. Londoners nicknamed it the 'wobbly bridge'. It didn't re-open for a further two years while modifications were made to eliminate the problem, (huge steel dampers were added to the structure). The bridge crosses the Thames in front of St Paul's Cathedral and was the subject of a competition organised by Southwark Council & RIBA Competitions. The winning entry was an innovative "blade of light" effort from Arup, Foster & Partners and Sir Anthony Caro. More info here if you're interested including the cause of the infamous wobble. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Millennium_Bridge,_London.

Just found out this shot has won the Photo 24 London Best Building Image! To say I'm shocked is something of an understatement. How apt is that avatar of mine!
Took a short train journey out of Edinburgh to travel across the iconic Forth Rail Bridge and a magnificent structure it is too.
