Several years ago the Ira Bong bridge was closed, one direction at a time, for improvements. Since this bridge happens to have a bike/pedestrian path that allows riders to cross between Duluth and Superior, I was able to go out a couple of times and have half the bridge to myself. This gave me a rare opportunity to capture images that otherwise would be impossible to get, at least legally. I made two trips during that time, one daytime and one nighttime. Of all of the images, this remains one of my favorites.

Fuji X-T2 and XF 50mm f/2 R WR Lens – 1/60 @ f/8 – ISO 6400
I’m working on preparing an image for submission with the subject being long exposure. We have several wood pulp plants in the area and I thought they would make for an interesting composition. Although technically strong, I feel that a little more wind would have created longer steam trails and been more what I wanted to capture.
