Skywatch

The Daniel Carter Beard Bridge spans the Ohio River connecting Cincinnati, Ohio and Newport, Kentucky. I took these shots from the Kentucky side.

It is nicknamed locally the "Big Mac Bridge" because its yellow arches are similar to the "Golden Arches" logo of McDonald's restaurant.

I do believe I rode over this bridge many years ago when in a meeting in Cincinnati...

Two beautiful photos!

Carver said...

Beautiful shot and I like the bridge a whole lot more than the Mac golden arches.

Carolyn Ford said...

I agree! This bridge is far better than the Golden Arches! Beautiful captures with the water, bushes in the foreground, buildings in the background...and, finally the gorgeous sky! Beautiful.

Hi Carol,
I have to say it is aptly nicknamed. :)
Beautiful composition and the sky in the first shot is stunning!

That's a beautiful bridge. I love that 2nd picture.

Seldom have I seen such a pretty bridge. The light colour is so pleasing against the sky. It looks more like a work of art rather than an engineering device and solely beause of the change incolouring from the normal.
Beautiful shots!

My heartfelt apology.
