El puente de Tacoma Narrows son un par de puentes colgantes de 1600 metros de longitud con una distancia entre soportes de 850 m (el tercero más grande del mundo en la época en que fue construido). El puente es parte de la carretera Washington State Route 16 en su paso a través de Tacoma Narrows de Puget Sound desde Tacoma a Gig Harbor (Estados Unidos). La primera versión de este puente, apodado Galloping Gertie, fue diseñado por Clark Eldridge y modificado por Leon Moisseiff. En 1940, el puente se hizo famoso por su dramático colapso estructural inducido por el viento, evento que quedó registrado en una filmación. El puente de reemplazo se inauguró en 1950.

El puente fue rediseñado y reconstruido utilizando una estructura de entramado abierto, además de elementos de apoyo para aumentar la rigidez. Esto permitió el paso del viento por el puente. El nuevo puente fue inaugurado el 14 de octubre de 1950, y tiene una longitud de 5.979 pies (1822 m) —40 pies (12 m) más largo que su predecesor—. Es actualmente el quinto puente en suspensión más largo de los Estados Unidos. Los habitantes locales apodaron el nuevo puente Sturdy Gertie, ya que las oscilaciones que acabaron con el anterior han sido eliminadas en éste.

  

Nuevo Puente de Tacoma Narrows.

Con esta experiencia se cambió el método de construcción de puentes, haciéndolos más aerodinámicos y reduciendo su esbeltez, para disminuir el efecto del viento.

Mount Rainier towers over Tacoma Washington as seen from Rustin Way. Just to the left of the tallest building is the beautiful cupola of the First Presbyterian Church in the Stadium District. The place with the red umbrellas is a great place to eat!

Enlarge the image to fully enjoy. :-) I forgot to mention, this might be the first ever landscape taken with a 300mm lens! :-)

Tacoma, Washington

From a bluff overlooking the Port of Tacoma we see all the way to Washington’s most iconic volcanic mountain, Mt. Rainier, as the light of a winter sunset begins to diminish.

View from our Tacoma House, taken on a cold morning. The fog on the water mixed with the steam from the tideflats morning caught the light just right.

The Tacoma Narrows bridge with Mt. Rainier in the background. The amazing part of the Pacific Northwest I call home.

Storm clouds over Tacoma, WA, seen from the windows of my office. It really was stormy. Later on, there was actual THUNDER. Thunder in the Pacific Northwest... unheard of!

We have the old Union Station and the Tacoma Dome lined up nicely in this view. The Union station was built in 1911 as the city's train station. The Tacoma Dome was finished in 1983, and is the world's largest wooden-domed structure! Thank you for your kind visitis my friends!

went to the south end this morning. was hoping for some fog but settled for a little pink in the sunrise.

  

Kinda an announcement but mostly just putting my reworked art up here.

 

I'm making music now, or at least something resembling it :P.

 

Give a listen if you are so inclined!

Our infamous "Tacoma Dome" was finished in 1983 at a cost of 44 million. It is the worlds largest arena with a wooden dome. Very drab in daylight but it can be beautiful with the city as a backdrop at dusk. The cold winter air was a plus.

I'm driving and suddenly the perfect photo opt presents itself. I've been meaning to get a traffic trails shot of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge, and was happy for a beautiful sunset to accompany it!

 

Nikon D90, 42mm, 1/6, f/13, ISO 100, 3 exposures at -1, 0, 1 and ND4 filter

Breaking the rules...shooting mid day.

[Reuploaded in black & white because I realized it looks much nicer.]

I decided to go shoot from a place I had been thinking about for quite some time this evening. The scene was perfect for some long exposure photos which are my favorite.
