Erasmus Bridge, Rotterdam. Usually impossible to get that view but i was lucky: the Tramway rails in the center lanes were being renewed and the bridge was closed for traffic. Other than it would happen in Germany, the workers didn't mind me standing in the middle of the construction site.
Just wish I didn't have to crop as close, but the Tramway powerlines are just outside of the frame here.

Thanks for your votes and kind comments.

I am fascinated by cable bridges for some odd reason, and I love this pic. Everything the challenge wanted as well as a fascinating topic study. Thanks for this shot.

One could think bridges photos are boring, and always the same... My, this one is fantastic, especially contrasted like you cleverly did! Your creative angle really made this shot. Congratulations on the ribbon!
