There is a video by Henri Cartier-Bresson that is making the rounds these days. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

La lumière est magnifique, elle rend la scène mystérieuse et sensuelle par ses courbes arrondies. J'aime !

A stunning view and so richly presented.
That link deserves to change a few photographic lives : how small we feel in the presence of greatness.

The sunset harmonizes the lines of the bridge and draws a very soft decoration.

A beautiful presentation of this bridge. I like the time-of-day addition that helps the picture be even more successful. Nicely done.

I like this view of the bridge better than yesterday's. Besides the beautiful sky, of course, I like the series of arches leading to the tall arch, and the absence of utility poles sticking up above the roadway.

@Harry: It's like real estate; location, location, location :))

What a beautiful difference from the day if it's a capture "after the storm." I love the warm colors which help create a great silhouette of the bridge.
