Bridge at Night

Several weeks ago while in the Rehoboth and Bethany Beach Delaware area, I took several opportunities to photograph the newly opened Charles W. Cullen Bridge, which spans the Indian River Inlet. You can see the previously posted image here. Today's image was taken at night, which provided a nice opportunity to see the LED lights illuminated. There was one problem however. The vantage point I previously scouted was blocked and I was unable to reach it so I had to work an alternative.

As you can see, I was literally fenced in and since this was on an incline, I was not able to fully clear it so I cropped a small portion of it and left it in place as a point of reference.

I took 5 long exposures with this being the best of the bunch. With no other light pollution in the area I was able to get the stars to twinkle and play nice for these shots.

The image was processed in Lightroom 4.2 before exporting to Photoshop where I applied the Topaz Adjust 5 filter.

Thanks so much for visiting!
