Mackinac Bridge #2

Posted by Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 23 January 2017 in Transportation and Portfolio.

The Mackinac Bridge is the one of the world's most beautiful bridges and the longest suspension bridge in the Americas, with a total length of 8,614 feet suspended. It is currently the third longest suspension bridge in the world. It connects Mackinaw City, Michigan with St. Ignace, Michigan.

The Mackinac Bridge is recognized as the official divider between Lake Michigan to the west and Lake Huron to the east.

As opposed to the first photo of the Mackinac Bridge, the weather was much better this day with the sun highlighting the bridge nicely. This view was captured while taking the ferry from Mackinaw City, Michigan to Mackinac Island.

Photo captured October 4, 2016.

It sure is the most beautiful in your pictures, Steven. The high density colours seem
to swirl in my brain and make for great depth and dimension in your wonderful
photo, the length or span seems almost endless from this persective !

I like how this captures the presence of the bridge in passing . . there is a feeling of Time about it.

That is an excellent view taken from the ferry.... you have captured that span very nicely! Beautiful blue sky and water. I like that there were no clouds that might detract from that great shot of the bridge. Very nice!
