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.

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.

I don’t want to say anything bad about Toronto, but the Gardiner is terrifyingly decrepit looking once you get underneath it. If you want to know the state of your regions traffic infrastructure, talk to more cabbies.
Originally this was a color image, but the contrast is so great that it pops with or without it. It’s just a garage but it was lit so perfectly by this one strong streetlight that I HAD to take a picture.
