Good work! Never really thought what that bridge would look like up close, I usually only see it in photos/videos as part of the skyline

Wow. Imagine the man hours that went into the construction. Terrific shot by the way.

Never seen it from that angle. Well composed and detailed. I wonder if they still allow tours over the top of the bridge.

I think it probably feels like one for the people who go up to the top.

Thanks Dave! I read about it and forget the number, but it took 8 years to build.

It does! It is the perfect travel lens along with my DA16-85.

Thanks Mike! They were still doing tours when I was there, I took several photos with people at the top.
