Weekly Photography Challenge – Bridges

There are two most obvious ways to photograph a bridge – from the side, or on it – as you can see by the two different angles of the Tower Bridge in London below. That’s a couple ideas for you. They both also use some long exposure photography, and have photographed the bridge at night or blue hour.

How about getting under the bridge like this examples – never know what you’ll find under there, maybe a troll?!

Share your images below:

Simply upload your shot into the comment field (look for the little camera icon in the Disqus comments section) and they’ll get embedded for us all to see or if you’d prefer upload them to your favourite photo sharing site and leave the link to them. Show me your best images in this week’s challenge. Sometimes it takes a while for an image to appear so be patient and try not to post the same image twice.

Photograph a local bridge, or an iconic one if you have one in your area. Just go find a bridge and shoot something in your style.
