The Blue Bridge prt2

I can see this bridge from the windows of my house. Sometimes I need some fresh air and go out for a walk late at night. This shot was taken around 00:30. It’s a well designed bridge. The form of the main construction beams is based on a ship. Where less carrying capacity is needed, the concrete gets thinner. I like the logic behind that and it gives the bridge some grace. When it gets dark; and the blue spots switch on, it gets even better. Blue is the colour of the sky and it makes the bridge look less heavy; as if it floats. Looking at it makes me calm. The blue spotlights in the dark make it hard to photograph and when I need some fresh air I never take a tri-pod…
