Sunrise at the Sunshine Skyway Bridge

The Sunshine Skyway Bridge is a sight to behold here in the Tampa Bay, Florida, area.  Spanning 4.1 miles, it ranked No. 3 in the Travel Channel’s special of the “Top 10 Bridges in the World.”  The wide angle focal length I used doesn’t show the true scale and grandeur of the structure, but it is massive, rising 431 feet into the air.  I don’t have a fear of heights but the first time I drove across this bridge I was a little unnerved staring up at the sky and not being able to see the other half of the span.  I felt like I was on a roller coaster, creeping upward and waiting to drop off quickly on the downward descent.

In this shot the sun is still below the horizon but you can see the light starting to illuminate the sky on the right hand side of the photograph.
