Skywatch

The John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge spans the Ohio River between Covington, Kentucky and Cincinnati, Ohio. This historic suspension bridge opened in 1867 and served as a prototype for Roebling's Brooklyn Bridge. This shot was taken from the Kentucky side facing Cincinnati.

A different view of the same bridge....Visit Skywatch on the sidebar....

Wow! Those are two amazing photos! What beautiful silhouettes and perspectives! The lines of the bridges are spectacular against the shades of blue, pink and purple sky! What great captures!

In that first photo, I love the light in the sky and on the buildings, the way it reflects off the water. Wonderful!

That first shot is so crystal clear. The pink-ish light reflecting off the building on the far left and then off the clouds is a nice balance.

Beautiful photos of that bridge. We were just at the Aquarium a few weeks ago and I took a few pictures too. But that is so pretty at sunset!
