This is the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge, or the “Cooper River Bridge”, in Charleston, South Carolina. It carries US highway 17 from Charleston north along the South Carolina coast. I found the modern geometric structure interesting, and a contrast to the older buildings in Charleston.
I took this photo while on vacation in South Carolina in early August.
Modernism is indeed the perfect word to describe this bridge 🙂
What an amazing structure – the bridge soaring to the sky!
Great perspective. I love cable-stayed bridges, they have such wonderfully soaring lines.
It is a magnificent structure, Catsynth. Nice shot!
Wow ! what a bridge !!
PS, I got you with my Klu Klux Klan, hehehe !
The perspective is magnificent! It’s an elegant-looking bridge.
Like an exquisite inverted harp!
what an awesome capture! Happy WW!
Love the view.Happy WW
Wowie!! That is one cool bridge!! And a great picture!!
Your TX furiends,
Okay, come clean: did you take that photo while you were driving?
Awesome shot! Great perspective. Good job.
No, I was in the passenger seat. Someone else was driving.
I never get over mankind’s ability to build. I sat in on a couple of steel and concrete stress structural engineering classes with a friend once and have to say application of the mathematical mind is amazing. ( Yeah I know how to have fun 😉 Great Picture the composition makes it very interesting. Happy WW
Tall! Makes me dizzy!
This reminded my mom of a bridge that is in the Tampa area. Great photo. Thanks for stopping by today it was nice meeting. I put a link on my sidebar if that is OK with you so I can find my way back to visit again.
I have a thing about bridges, and this one is just gorgeous.
Oh, amazing!!!! Great shot.
Thanks for dropping by…
What great perspective! It looks so majestic!
That looks fabulous. I am sure, locals are proud of the place. Many people love to travel the world. If I’ve given an opportunity to travel, I’ll visit the place also.
That is a very attractive bridge, and a super angle for that shot!!!!!!!
What a cool shot!
I wonder how they managed to build it so high.
Groan, you were right down the road practically! Hwy 17 goes right past our street:
Next time, you’re invited for dinner at our house and a walk on the beach!
Wow, I really was close by if only for a short time. Here’s some more photos from the same trip:
This was all part of family event, but I’m sure I’ll be through there again sometime…
Awesome, Brookgreen Gardens is a wonderful place and so hard to believe in that setting, near the honky tonk town of Myrtle Beach.
When I was a little girl, we lived in the Manhattan neighborhood of Washington Heights. My mother would take me out of school on a regular basis to explore the city and go to museums and such.
Downstairs in the basement cafeteria of the Metropolitan Museum of Art was a sculpture pool around which the tables were arranged. I loved it for its playfulness. Years later I was showing the museum to an out-of-town visitor who was a bit of a country mouse [he thought the paintings were reproductions!], and we went downstairs to eat lunch. I was delighting in sharing my memories when, alas…the doors were shuttered. A major redesign was taking place. Wa-a-a-h, where was my pool of sculptured fountains and figures? I was really saddened.
Guess what? The first time I went to Brookgreen, we turned a corner in the gardens, and…yeah, lucky old me…set among the blooming wisteria and Lady Banks yellow roses was my sculpture pool, the Fountain of Muses.
See you soon!
Wooow..coool.. I like some kind of tower building like that. But, that is a bridge. Really cool. 😛
great lines! – cool photo
I love strong bold shapes, and I love a style of photography that is clean and simple yet conveys so much.
You’ve got it right here in abundance. Strong geometric shapes against a clear blue sky – excellent. It reminds me of The Severn Bridge from England into Wales. I shoot people and my style is clean and simple – you can take a look if you’d like to. http://www.nickgregan.com
