I'm imagining that this was really early in the day judging by the lack of traffic. (Unless it has all been stopped by a red light).

13 Jul 2012 8:44am

@Curly: After determining the traffic patterns, I saw the opportunity when no oncoming cars would be present due to a traffic light just beyond the bridge. Once you cross the bridge, the traffic is much heavier.

Magnifique point de vue, avec un avant plan superbe.
Dis donc je ne voudrais pas faire le nettoyage des vitres !... :))D.

Judy aka L@dybug from Brooksville, FL, United States

This is a terrific view right down into the city, a city we've never seen. Pretty quiet for a Friday morning.
I expect you may have done some perspective correction and if so, you did a super job of it.
