Tiles #22


This photo of the Yaquina Bay Bridge in Newport, Oregon was taken early on a foggy morning.  I thought the fog would be clear enough to get a decent shot from the jetty below, but it was just too thick.  I moved up onto the deck to see what I could make happen.

I envisioned this shot without the car, but the traffic on HWY 101, even this early in the morning was just too steady to avoid.  I had to move quickly so as to be able to get the shot from the center of the deck.  In the end Ireally do like the oncoming headlights as it adds a sense of drama that heightens the scene.

I eventually settled on a square crop of the shot due to the symmetry of the bridge and how it compacted the scene into its best parts.  This is one of my favorite images in my catalogue.
